We are always trying to put in our greatest efforts to give RSA competitors the largest possible range of diverse venues and locations throughout Ireland to enjoy motorsport with the Rallysport Association and we are glad that we were still able to offer them all at our very competitive entry fees while insurance levys and additional penalty costs are having a serious impact on ‘regulated’, (MSA/MI) motorsport. We hope to have news of new venues to be included in 2018 and details will be announced when they are available.

Entries are always welcome with us for just one event, a few events or for the full championship and casual and new competitors are always very welcome.

The 2017 Irish Championship has completed Round Four of the first ever Rallysport Association Irish Championship at Pallas Motorsport Centre  on Sunday the 1st October and there is now only one round left in the Championship at Mondello Park on the 4th November which will also include the championship prize giving.

It will also be the first round of our first ever Irish Winter Championship which will be held over three events at Mondello which includes The Irish Open on the 10th February and our final round on the 10th March

 This 2017 Irish Championship consisted of three rounds at Mondello on the 18th February, 29th July and 4th November and two rounds at Tynagh on the 16th April and 1st October.

We are very grateful for the support we received for our individual events in Tynagh and at Mondello Park over the last few years and we now look forward to finding our first ever ‘All Ireland RSA Champions’ in a few weeks time on the 4th of November 2017.

We do hope we can count on your continued support and if any of you are interested in supporting any RSA Championship or events within the 2018 Championship season as sponsors in any way please contact us on info@therallysportassociation.com or by phone or text on 0044 (0) 7788 598461

ATTENTION ALL COMPETITORS

Dear RSA Competitor

IMPORTANT

We have noticed at several of our previous events that many competitors leave it very late to enter or do not bother to pre-enter at all even despite the opportunity to win a free entry worth £90 in a draw.

We have made it very easy for our competitors to enter our events with several simple method options.

It is vital that we have an idea of the names and number of participants by the Wednesday preceding our events to prepare the necessary paperwork and confirm all our support people for the event, staff, timekeepers, marshall’s , medical support, toilets and the caterer and our insurers need this information too. An event earlier this year was cancelled because of insufficient entries received at this decision time and I believe 20 or so competitors actually turned up at the venue on the day!

If this situation is to continue we will have no option to penalise those very late entrants with a ‘late entry fee’ as other motorsport organisers do.

So for future events that you intend to compete in with The RSA just enter on line, on facebook or just simply lift your phone and call/ text us 24/7 with your entry details BEFORE the Thursday before the event – that’s all we ask and the additional ‘penalty’ fees can be avoided.

Alan
