Donegal Motor Club has just announced the return of a special 'Closed Mini Stages Rally' planned to take place on Saturday 30th January 2016.
Recently elected Clerk of the Course for the event Karl Reid, is busy planning a route and preparing Regulations.
Once again the Donegal Club has been tasked by the National Sporting body, MotorSport Ireland, following an application to run such an event in for the North-West region of the Ireland.
Karl said, “We have been given the go-ahead for the event recently, and it is a priority to get the route, regulations, and essential requirements in place shortly to give the Club Members a great Mini-Event. Although termed 'Mini' it requires the same stages of planning, although with fewer miles than the Joule International Rally or Harvest Rally. The full team are hard at work to make this happen. Essentially this is an event for the Donegal Motor Club members, as it is a 'closed' permit.”
Outline details available so far include, the date for the event, Saturday 30th January 2016, which will be based out of Letterkenny. The route will consist of 6 special stages, in a format of 2 stages run 3 times, over a distance of approximately 90 kms.
