Limerick Forest Rally: Rd 2 Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Rally Championship postponed
“It is with a very heavy heart I write this note.
As most of you who know me or know of me I don’t give up too easy.
But this time I have to concede to the ‘Beast from the East’ and her friend ‘Storm Emma’. They have thrown everything at us in the past week but unfortunately they have taken this battle but they haven’t taken the war. Unfortunately the thoughts of an Irish version of rally Sweden just wasn’t to be.
But we will be back in the not so distant future.
With road conditions in a very bad way for competitors and marshal’s along with the services such as the ambulances and the rescue units and the doctor / Advance Paramedics trying to get to the event and home after I feel it would be selfish of me to ask anyone to travel in such conditions
At the end of the day we are all about running safe events. This means getting everyone to the event during the running of the event and getting home safely after so for this reason I am Postponing the Limerick Forestry Rally which was to run on the 4th of March.
Once again I say thanks to each and every one for the support and help in the last number of weeks no matter how big or small it was I am for ever grateful.
To all the competitors that entered the event I sincerely thank you for supporting our event and hope you come back to the event when it runs again in the near future.
It is the planned to run the event on the 25th of March 2018 subject to approval by Motorsport Ireland.
I would like to thank the Munster Car Club and also Westmeath & District Motor Club and County Monaghan Motor Club for their help and cooperation in being able to adjust to this date. I would ask where possible support and thank these clubs when they run there events in the future.
Once again thanks for everything”
Yours in motorsport
