OUR DECEMBER DOUBLE - THE RSA 'CHRISTMAS CRACKER' & THE RSA 'NEW YEAR IRISH NATIONAL'

The next two events on the RSA calendar are the annual 'Christmas Cracker' event at Nutts Corner on Wednesday the 27th of December and our new 'Christmas' event, The 'New Year Irish National' at Pallas Motorsport Centre at Tynagh Co Galway on Saturday the 30th December. Entries are available for both events and can be made on line through the link in the Event Information below, through Facebook Messenger or by phone or text on +44 (0) 7788 598461. The entry for the Christmas Cracker at Nutts Corner has now reached the maximum entry of 140 drivers so all entries received from Wednesday the 13th of December will be be given a place on our reserve list and identified at the bottom of the Entry List in red font. They will automatically progress to the confirmed list when we receive withdrawals and cancellations as we progress in the next two weeks on the approach to the event . There are 35 entries still available for the Irish National event at Tynagh on Saturday the 30th but it will be capped at 100 due to parking limitations in Wintertime at this venue.

Remember only the entries received for 'The Christmas Cracker' before Saturday evening of the 23rd of December and for 'The Irish National' before the Wednesday evening of the 27th December will qualifiy for the Free Entry Draw on the morning of the events worth £90/100 so if you are not in you cannot win!

The latest editions of the entry lists for both events are now available and will be updated regularly as we approach each event. Both have filled up quite rapidly and If you want to guarantee your entry on thev entry lists, it is advised to enter sooner rather than later as both events will be restricted to a maximum number due to light availability together with paddock and parking space restrictions. We do not want to offend anyone with a refusal for late entries. Just click on the 'Entry List' link at the top of this page to view.

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 now been finalised at Mondello Park on the 4th November which was also 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 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
