The ‘Kerry Motor Club Rally Sprint’ will be taking place at Tralee Racecourse this weekend.

TRALEE Racecourse is fast becoming a thriving hub for a different style of racing as it prepares to host the ‘Kerry Motor Club Rally Sprint’ on Saturday July 18.

Gates will be opening at 10.30am on the day and with public admission only €5 and children free in, it’s certainly not a day to be missed for the car and racing enthusiasts out there.

Organisers for the event are offering an 2.3km stage with a fee of €160 for a driver and navigator, on a course of mixed surfaces with a minimum two runs for each competitor.

It is expected that the stage will be run at four different times to ensure value for money for those taking part.

Previous winner Pat O’Connell is set to return in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 in a bid to make it an impressive three wins in a row. The Cashel man has been very hard to beat here the last two years and will be the man to catch once again this year.

Other notable entries including Ed O’Callaghan (Ford Escort Mk2), Mike O’Connor Jnr (Subaru Impreza) and Eamon Howard (JB Buggy).

Local entries will include PJ O’Dowd (Talbot Sunbeam), Patrick Slattery (Honda Civic), Ray Stack (Subaru Impreza) and John Browne (Honda Civic).

The first run is expected around 11.30am, so set those alarm clocks and enjoy something just a little different this weekend.
