Modern Tyre Service Mourne Rally takes to the roads

Newry and District Motor Club has revealed that the popular Mourne Rally will take to the roads this year for what is the fifth round of the Northern Ireland Rally Championship, which will take place on Saturday 5 June.

At the recent press launch, the organising committee also announced that they have secured a further three years sponsorship from Modern Tyre Service.

Des O’Loan commented: “It is great to have Rory Byrne on board again, as without sponsorship, events like this would simply not be possible.”

The rally will consist of nine special stages totalling approximately 80 competitive miles, including three runs over a lengthened Slieve Gullion test. The remaining stages will be held on closed roads previously used by the Circuit of Ireland Rally in the Newtownhamilton area.

It is also important to outline that HANS Devices are NOT required for this event, reducing costs for many competitors. Regulations and entry forms are now available on the Newry and District Motor Club’s website,
