Gordon Bennett Rally

We are happy to announce details of the
2024 IVVCC 48th International Gordon Bennett Rally,

and are very appreciative that we continue to have sponsorship from
CHUBB – Barrett Private Insurances.
The event is open to all cars registered before 31st December 1930
and is being held over 2 days from Friday 7th to Saturday 8th.

In this 48th year, and to encourage the very early cars to participate, the Board of the IVVCC offers a
Complimentary Entry to cars
registered prior to 31st December 1904

for all entries received by Friday, 3rd May 2024.

The event is open to all cars registered before 31st December 1930.

The four classes are:

Prior to 31st Dec, 1904

1st Jan, 1905 – 31st Dec, 1918

1st Jan, 1919 – 31st Dec, 1926

1st Jan, 1927 – 31st Dec, 1930

All classes of cars are eligible for the Overall Prize.

Once again, we are based at the Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Co Carlow and the route for this 48th year has already been planned, with interesting scenic roads for the two days of our 2024 event.

The event will start on Friday 7th at 2pm with our welcome lunch followed by a scenic run, commencing in Carlow. We have arranged a Buffet Supper at 7.30pm on Friday evening. 

Registration will commence on Saturday 8th at 7.30am in Mount Wolseley Conference Centre and all cars should be away, in numerical order, from the starting area by 10.00am. Whilst this is an event which appeals to the keen entrant with competitive regularity sections, it is also a very social event with opportunities to experience some early summer scenery and social occasions at the designated lunch stop before returning to Mount Wolseley in the late afternoon. 

Our Gala Dinner on Saturday night is at 8pm and is always a very popular evening and an opportunity to see the worthy prize winners and share anecdotes from the Rally.

Closing Date for receipt of entries is Friday, 3rd May 2024. Refunds WILL NOT be possible six weeks prior to the event.

Full information on the starting venue and an Event Schedule will be provided by email to all entrants in the week prior to the event and registration car plate, headlamp numbers and route books will be available from 7.30am until 10.00am on Saturday morning.
