Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Ir­ish For­est Rally Cham­pi­onship will look to resched­ule a new rally later in the year af­ter los­ing its sec­ond round run by the Tip­per­ary LC&MCC club.

“The club felt they were in a po­si­tion where they couldn’t run the event in the time they had,” said Ray Fitzpatrick, Ir­ish For­est Rally Cham­pi­onship or­gan­iser. “When they came to us we tried to find an al­ter­na­tive event but we haven’t had time to do that [be­fore the event date].”

Fitzpatrick con­firmed a new event could join the cal­en­dar later in the year to re­turn the se­ries to a seven round for­mat.

“We’ll try and get an event pen­cilled in for later in the year to re­place it.

“I don’t think the Tip­per­ary club will [run an event] but I hope we’ll find an­other club that will have a bit more time to or­gan­ise it.”
