We are once again delighted to announce that Frank Hussey, has agreed to be Clerk of the Course, assisted by Ian McCulloch and they and their team are now planning a one-day rally, strictly in line with Government and Health regulations at that time. This year, in response to a number of comments received from previous entrants we will again ask people to choose which speed they will maintain, i.e., 18 or 24 mph and you should indicate on the entry form which one you prefer. You should also advise if you require parking for the car and a trailer at the start of Rally.
The Rally Registration takes place on Saturday morning, 11th June, in Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Co. Carlow. We will advise the start time closer to the event and there will be a dedicated lunch stop, where entrants will have a choice of numerous places to have lunch or enjoy their own picnic lunch, before following the timed return route to Mount Wolseley Hotel.
