Official sponsor announced for upcoming Easter Stages Rally
Triton Showers has been announced as the official sponsor of the upcoming Easter Stages Rally.
Support from the leading UK bathroom specialist will enable entry fees to be reduced and, as a result, the Easter Stages now has one of the lowest entry fees for a full day’s rallying, anywhere in Ireland.
The rally is taking the place of the traditional Circuit of Ireland International Rally this year, which was postponed, due to lack of funding.
The Triton Showers Easter Rally, which takes place on Saturday 30th March, will feature as Round 2 of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship and Round 3 of the Northern Ireland Stage Rally Championship.
The event starts in Lisburn's Bow Street, with all the razzmatazz of recent years, and competitors will then blast their way through a loop of four stages before arriving at the Millbrook Lodge Hotel in Ballynahinch for service. Two more loops of stages including another visit to service will be completed before the drivers steer their world-class machinery towards the finish ramp in Ballynahinch that evening.
Over 100 national and international competitors are expected to take part.
Clerk of the Course Gordon Noble commented, “It's a very compact route for competitors and spectators alike. The stages are very accessible and spectators are sure to have a great day’s entertainment.”
He added: “The organising team have worked hard to pull this event together at short notice but we think you’ll agree, it will be a fantastic event.”
