Firstly, it is of the utmost importance that all Volunteers and Officials attending the event put their own safety as a priority and ideally if people from the same households could travel together to and from the event.  Additional to the normal procedures for helping and officiating they should always follow the current HSE/Government guidelines where practically possible.
Hereunder are the intended protocols which will be put in place at a minimum.
1. Exact number of V&Os required for the event will be established by the COC in conjunction with the Motorsport Ireland Safety Delegate prior to the event.
2. All V&Os will be required to complete and sign a Covid-19 Self Declaration Form 72 hours before attending (Wednesday the 07th of October), this signature will be considered as sign on to act at the event replacing the normal sign on procedures. 
3. All roles will be pre-assigned and advised.
4. Meeting point will be at the Racecourse in Tramore where attendees can socially distance. Non-contact temperature checks will always be carried out on entry to the facility. P.N should a temperature reading be recorded above 37.5 then the person will be asked to self-isolate in their own vehicle, drink fluids and be rechecked after 15 minutes. On the second check should the temperature remain above 37.5 then the Security Personnel will contact the Covid Compliance Officer by phone for further instructions.

7. During the running of the event the V&Os will carry out their normal duties for its safe running whilst keeping a safe distance from all other personnel.
8. The event is not being advertised nor are maps being published in the usual rally programme in order to discourage spectating.
9. Covid-19 signage will be in place at all venues to advise any potential spectators of the HSE protocols.   Therefore, we do not require V&Os to engage with spectators on the matter unless they feel their own welfare is in danger.  If this should happen, they should contact the Assistant COC immediately who will in turn take direction from the COC.
10. Please always wear your PPE where necessary and regularly sanitize your hands throughout the day.
11. In the event of any person feeling unwell during the event, please contact the Assistant COC immediately by phone who will in turn make the necessary arrangements for your safety and welfare.

13. V&Os are asked to please leave the event when their role is carried out and we thank you all most sincerely for your help and co-operation.

Update to members

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


Dear Club Members,


Update on our proposed events to year end.


The decision has been taken by our COC and his team for the Autocross scheduled for Sunday the 13th of September to cancel this event, This decision by Richie was not taken easily but due to the date move which caused a change of location from last year he had concerns about the management of the new venue.


The decision has also been taken by our COC Derek O’Neill not to proceed with our two day Hillclimb scheduled for Saturday the 19th & Sunday the 20th of September.


We must respect and support both Richie and Derek’s decision and thank them both for the efforts in trying to get these events up and running.


A Press release will be issued shortly advising of both cancelations.



Our Ravens Rock Mini Stages Rally scheduled for Sunday the 11th of October is still on schedule and an amount of work has been done to date, Our COC James Coleman suggests at best the running of the event is currently 50/50 however he intends proceeding as planned with all the necessary work and a final decision can be made 2/3 weeks out from the event and worst case scenario, we will have an event ready to run at any date in the future should we fail on this occasion.


The following has been agreed and approved.


  1. Date and event has been approved by Motorsport Ireland, Sport Ireland and the Return to Sport Task Force.
  2. Regs & Entry form ready for submitting to MI for approval
  3. Roadbook, T&D Schedule and Time cards already in DRAFT format
  4. Safety plan is completed in DRAFT format and the Motorsport Ireland Safety Officer has inspected and approved it. It will be sent to MI in the coming days for approval and a permit number.
  5. Tramore/Kilmacthomas Garda have given us their approval and offered any help we need.
  6. Waterford Co Co Head Engineer over roads has given us his support for the event and approval for road closing which will be published in the coming week.
  7. HQ and Service Area confirmed
  8. All services including Doctors are provisionally booked
  9. B & M Communications provisionally booked and radio test for late September
  10. Angus Sealy Results provisionally booked
  11. Donegal timing gear and personnel provisionally booked
  12. Accommodation required provisionally booked at Dooley’s Hotel



Our Chairman and COC for the event in anticipation of favourable changes to HSA guidelines and or further dispensation for sports events from the Return to Sport Task Force (See favourable email below as late as yesterday to MI from Sport Ireland)  is asking at this point what club members are happy to be involved in working pre event and on the day as positions now need to be allocated.  He and all other Club directors ask that no club member should feel under pressure to be involved unless they are happy to do so under current conditions/guidelines.


Several Members are already committed and involved to date. If we could just get a thumbs up txt or WhatsApp to the COC on 0872640000 by this coming Friday evening it would be great as we intend to contact surrounding clubs for help after this weekend and it would be great to know what positions we need to fill.
