2011 Willie Loughman Forestry Rally

Wednesday, 09 March 2011 14:45



This Year's Willie Loughman's Forestry Rally Returns to the Dark. In 2008 Terence Kearney introduced the competitors to Night Stages with the event starting in the early hours and the 2011 event again sees a return of "NIGHT STAGES" as this year's six stage event will have three special stages in Darkness.

A tough season is expected this year in Motorsport but the Carrick on Suir Motor Club are always to the forefront in pushing new boundaries and forging new ground. The same can be said about Barry Duggan Clerk of the Course for years Willie Loughman Forestry Rally. Barry takes charge for his second time after calling the shots on a very successful event twelve months ago. For 2011, Barry will push the envelope as he intends to streamline the rally down to a "Saturday Single Day Event".    The event this year forms the second round of the Valvoline National Forestry Championship. The one rally moves this year from it's usual Sunday format to a new all in one day scrutiny and rally on the Saturday. Competitors will arrive on Saturday morning the 5th of March for mechanical/paper scrutiny, the rally action then gets underway in the afternoon with the first of six stages getting off the startling at approximately 3pm. The first loop will be completed in daylight but the second loop will see darkness fall and the competitors will have to adapt to the conditions.
