Irish Forest Rally Championship seeking new round to replace lost second event
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.”
