Galway International Rally returns for 2019


The Galway International Rally returns in 2019 following a sabbatical in 2018, and will take place on the weekend of February 9-10.

Following lengthy consultations with competitors, championship organisers and others, it became clear that a one day, competitor friendly rally would be the ideal format to firmly re-establish the event on the MI and ITRC calendars. Therefore, for 2019 the stages will all take place on Sunday, February 10 and focus on value for money for competitors, also offering a cost-effective start to the 2019 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship. The club would like to acknowledge the assistance and advice provided by Motorsport Ireland and the TROA in our new running format.

Once again the rally headquarters will be the Clayton Hotel, Ballybrit, Galway City. The Clayton continues to be a huge supporter of the rally and reminds competitors that limited numbers of rooms are still available. The rally route consists of 10 stages, offering some of the best available roads in the county.

The entry fee for the rally is set at €875, this is all inclusive with no additional levies. This coupled with a clubman friendly route, minimal road mileage and a centralised service area are sure to entice many competitors out for some fun and good competition on the Galway stages.
