The Circuit of Ireland International Rally is vying for the accolade ‘Best Tourism Event or Festival Experience’ in the 2016 NI Tourism Awards and is urging rally fans at home and abroad to cast their vote and back the Circuit which this year celebrated its 85th anniversary.
An elated Bobby Willis, Circuit Event Director said,” We’re absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted alongside several top class events. The wealth of excellent events really shows that Northern Ireland punches well above its weight in terms of world class event programmes and festivals from sporting initiatives to arts and cultural events.
“Our entry relates to our 2015 event which was Craig Breen’s Circuit debut win. As the winner will be decided by a public online vote we’d love all rally fans and Circuit supporters to help us get the top spot on the winners’ podium. “
The ‘Best Event’ entry with the most number of votes will take the crown and the public can each submit only one vote. The deadline is Thursday May 12 and to vote simply click on the link http://nitourismawards.com/2016-shortlist or visit www.nitourismawards.com.
This year’s Circuit of Ireland was held 7-9 April and the historic trophy was won by Waterford star Craig Breen and his co-driver Scott Martin. Craig said he was delighted to take a second consecutive Circuit title and described the Circuit of Ireland as ‘one of the best rallies in the world’. It showcased a record entry line-up boasting an extraordinary number of new generation R5 and S2000 cars and included participants from as far afield as China and Australia. In total competitors from 20 different countries took part.
New for 2016 was live Internet TV coverage of the event streamed through the Circuit’s website. The thrilling images were watched by 100,000 viewers in 130 countries for just short of an amazing two million minutes.
