The last event on this years 'Summer' calendar of events took place on Saturday the 12th of October at Ireland's superb premier motor sport facility, Mondello Park in Co Kildare. This event was the final round and prize giving for the 2019 RSA Irish Championship. It was another 'RSA Cracker' and a fitting end to a fantastic 2019 Summer season, the weather was perfect, the competition was fast and fierce and the 106 starters enjoyed 8 stages on the Mondello Park International track opportunity. Congratulations to the overall winners Barry Morris (Darrian) and Aaron Beattie (Speedcar). The overall and class results can be downloaded via the Results link at the top of this page. The final standings in all The RSA Summer Championships will be published shortly and can also be downloaded via the Results link at the top of this page.

We now look forward to our 18th 'Winter Championships' with the NI opening round 1 with 'The Halloween Northern Stages' at the superb Shackleton Complex at Ballykelly on Saturday the 2nd November and a fortnight later we open 'the account' for the Irish Winter Championships with 'The Halloween Southern Stages' at the fast and flowing venue at Tynagh just inside the eastern Galway border near Loughrea on Sunday the 17th November. The dates and venues for the full RSA Winter programme in Ireland are detailed below and entries are always welcome from new starters, junior drivers from 12 years of age, casual entries for event shakedowns and testing and as always the many past, new and regular RSA competitors.

We pride ourselves by delivering professional, enjoyable, competitive, value for money events and we appreciate the competitor support we continually experience as we continue to develop the options for the RSA competitors for venues and vehicles in Ireland.

Entries will still be accepted right up to the start of each event however, the 'late' entries will not be included in the Free Entry Draw.

It has been necessary to 'cap' the entry numbers for some of the recent RSA events because of the high demand for places so if you want to be guaranteed an entry place for these events we strongly suggest competitors place their entry BEFORE the cut off for the Free Entry Draw on 10pm on the Wednesday preceding each event. From that time entries will only be accepted on a 'first come, first served policy' and may be penalised with a €25 LATE ENTRY FEE!

The introduction of the new 'late entry fee' is to encourage our competitors to make their entries earlier than currently so that we are confident that their is sufficient entries to ensure the event is viable. So if you intend to compete at this event please make your entry BEFORE 10pm on the Wednesday preceding each event so we can confirm final details to all competitors and all the event support crews.

The gates to all our venues will be open from 7.30am and signing on will commence at 8.00am inside the reception building. Scrutineering will be provided at competitors service area from 8.00am. The drivers briefing will take place at 9.45am with the 'sighting/observation run' immediately thereafter. A scheduled eight stage runs are on the menu with the best six determining each competitors score.

Please be aware that the demand for entries at recent RSA events have recently exceeded availability and the arrival of competitors who want places at the last minute has caused us event management problems. As a result, and in order to be fair to ALL competitors we have necessitated a few changes so please be advised of them.

The first edition of the entry list for the next event will be published on Wednesday the 30th of October and will be updated regularly during the remainder of the week leading up to the event. All entries that have been received before 10pm on the Wednesday preceding all RSA events automatically qualify for inclusion in the ‘Free Entry Draw’ which can be worth up to £120/€140 which will take place at the end of the drivers briefing, so if you are not in on time you cannot have an opportunity in the Free Entry Draw.

Events at this venue always attract many casual entries for the opportunity for shakedowns and testing prior to major Irish Rally events so we strongly recommend that entries should be made sooner rather than later for places to be guaranteed. The maximum entry will be capped for this event so it is in all competitors interest to enter BEFORE the Wednesday evening prior to the event if they want to be guaranteed a place. Entries will be accepted right up to 10 am on the morning of the event but will not be included in the ‘Free Entry Draw’ worth €140.

Entries can be made on-line through this Enter Online link, on Facebook Messenger or by phone or text on our direct entry number (0044) 7788 598461.

The gates to the venue will open at 7.30am. Signing on will commence 8.00am in the reception building and scrutiny will take place at each competitors service parking in the paddock from 8.10am. Please ensure all cars have been cleaned for this event and race wear and helmets for car crew satisfy RSA technical and associated regulations (available on this website) and are available for inspection at scrutiny. Noise testing may also be taken so please ensure vehicles can satisfy the maximum permitted RSA noise regulation of 105 dba measured 1 metre from the exhaust end at 3500 rpm cars and 6000 rpm for race buggies.

The competitors briefing will take place at 9.50am in front of race reception and ALL competitors and children’s parents/guardians MUST be in attendance.

An  observation lap for each crew will start at 10.15am and the first stage of this eight stage event will follow immediately after.

We wish to thank all competitors and friends and spectators for their continued support for the RSA in 2019 and we look forward to the two 2019/20 Winter Championships which will commence at with The Halloween Stages at Shackleton on Saturday the 2nd of November and round 1 of the Irish Winter Championship at Tynagh on Sunday the 17th November.
