The Northern Ireland Motor Club is delighted to announce a new and unique competition aimed at providing opportunities for young drivers under the age of 30 on this year’s Todds Leap Ulster Rally.
The 2013 Ulster Rally is fortunate to have received support from Sport Northern Ireland, through their International Sport Events Programme, which aims to develop improved performance pathways for Northern Ireland athletes/players and sports.
As their contribution to the development of young drivers the NIMC will offer the fastest crews in two wheel drive (2wd) and four wheel drive (4wd) cars on this year’s event a free entry to any section of the 2014 Ulster Rally. In addition, the fastest crews from Northern Ireland in 2wd and 4wd cars will each receive a free entry into the Wales Rally GB (British Amateur) or the Wales Rally GB National Event (2 or 3 day).
The places will be calculated from the quickest times of each crew on all 7 stages of the event. Where stages are run more than once, the fastest time will count towards the final result. Only crews which are declared as finishers of their event will be eligible.
The competition is open to all drivers under the age of 30 entered in any of the events run within the 2013 Ulster Rally. Entry is automatic – no further action is required by entrants.
The Todds Leap Ulster Rally encompasses 130 competitive miles over 15 stages in the Fermanagh and Tyrone regions. Set to kick off at lunchtime on Friday 23rd August with a ceremonial start in Enniskillen town centre, the rally finishes back in the town centre on Saturday from 4pm.
New for this year will be the family friendly Modern Tyres Spectator Special stage and other attractions at the St. Angelo Airport complex along with the event’s Central Service Park – all within easy reach of Enniskillen town centre. Rally HQ will be based at the Belmore Court & Motel and the organisers expect 300 drivers and co-drivers, supported by over 600 service crew, to be competing in up to 150 rally cars over the two day period.
