Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Rally Championship Committee Chairman Ray Fitzpatrick has just confirmed that all MI clubs have agreed to set the entry fees for the 2017 series after the new insurance agreement was confirmed.
There has been a lot of confusion lately because of the complex negotiations taking place to secure the necessary insurance cover for 2017. Now that the insurance costs have been agreed, we can now confirm that the standard entry fees will be €550 + the new insurance levy (Forest Events = €75) - total cost = €625 Euro.
The all new Junior 1000 section will be granted a reduction in entry fee to give this initiative the best support in its first year and that will be €325 + Insurance Levy - total cost = €400 Euro.
Please keep in mind that the standard entry fees are only valid until the entries closing date and late entry fee rates will most likely apply after that. Check each events regulations for further details.
We are asking competitors to please send their entries in as early as possible to avail of these new entry fees and give each organising club the best chance possible in the run up to their event dates.
We are now only 4 weeks away from the first round of the championship – the Willie Loughman Memorial Carrick on Suir Forest Rally- and only 2 weeks away from their entries closing date, so if you haven't sent your entry in yet – please get it done ASAP!
