John Mulholland announces Ulster Rally sponsorship

John Mulholland Motors will be the headline sponsor of the Ulster Rally for the next three years.

Dealer Principal John Mulholland, a well-known rally driver himself, said that he was “delighted to be the new sponsor of the Ulster Rally for 2016, 2017 and 2018, a rally with a proud history and reputation for exciting competition”.

The John Mulholland Motor Group is synonymous with the Skoda, Ford and Hyundai brands, with branches in Randalstown and Campsie, Eglinton.

John commented, “Rallying has been a passion of mine since I was a young boy and it's a privilege for my company to be associated with such a high profile event. When I heard that Derry/Londonderry was being considered as the Host City for the next three years, this was a “no brainer” for us, especially since all the brands we represent, Skoda, Ford and Hyundai, are all actively involved in rallying and feature at the highest levels of motorsport throughout the world.

Gary Milligan, Clerk of the Course of the 2016 John Mulholland Motors Ulster Rally, commented that “John has been a regular competitor on the Ulster Rally over many years and we are delighted to now have him as the headline sponsor. This will be an exciting year of new beginnings for the Ulster, with the move to Derry/Londonderry and now a new Headline Sponsor in John Mulholland Motors”.
