The Galway Motor Club are delighted to announce that the Galway Summer Rally will form part of the 2015 Sligo Pallets Border Rally Championship.

Press Release:

The committee of the Border Rally Championship are delighted to confirm that Sligo Pallets will return as title sponsors for the 2015 Border Rally Championship. This partnership, which began in 2011, has seen the Championship grow in stature and entrance levels increase over the previous years. It is hoped this trend will continue in 2015.

The Championship will revert to a six round series in 2015 with the addition of the Galway Summer Rally in late August. It was felt by many crews that there was too long of a gap between Sligo & Donegal ,so Galway in late August was the ideal candidate to fill this void. The committee look forward to welcoming Galway to the fold this year. Due to the new round, competitors will now count their best four scores from six events. Classes will be as per 2015 Motorsport Ireland regulations.

Entries remain open for the first round of the Championship in Ballina on March 8th. COC Padraig Roche has laid out three new stages his year with a total competitive distance of 116 kms which should be the perfect opening to this year’s championship.

The dates for the 2015 Rounds are:

March 8th Mayo Stages Rally
April 26th Monaghan Stages Rally
May 23rd Cavan Stages Rally
July 11th Sligo Stages Rally
August 30th Galway Summer Rally
October 10th Donegal Harvest Rally
