Ravens Rock Rally 2016




The 2016 Ravens Rock Rally will be officially launched on Friday 13th May at Dooley’s Hotel, The Quay, Waterford at 20:00. This is the fourth year that the rally is sponsored by Dooley’s Hotel with the entire competition taking place on stages in Co. Waterford.

Launching the event are former tarmac rally Champion Eugene Donnelly, renowned for his exploits on tarmac and forestry rallying the length and breadth of the country with “legend” tagged onto his name when it crops up in rally conversations, and Rob Duggan, Billy Coleman Award winner who is setting out on his rallying career. Competitors like Eugene were probably the heroes that inspired Rob and others to pursue a career in rallying. Eugene has competed with and against the best in rallying throughout the past 30 or so years.

This year the Ravens Rock Rally celebrates its 45th anniversary. It was originally an all-night forestry rally with map reading (navigation) an integral part of the competition. The first Ravens Rock rally was run from Mansfield’s Pub in Mothel and finished there as dawn was breaking…

Today’s event is far more refined as the stages are on tarmac, in the hours of daylight, and navigation is by following ‘Tulip Diagrams’. Some say the diagrams represent a pencil sketch of the tulip, while others say this style of direction was first used on the Tulip Rally.This year’s event will run on Sunday 26th June. The format for the rally is changed slightly from the previous three years when the stages were in the Dunmore East / Woodstown area. This year, while based in the city, the action will be on the stages further west in the county. This is a national event run under the auspices of Motorsport Ireland.

The Ravens Rock rally is a six stage rally in which cars from the latest WRC rally cars to Juniors will compete. Entries are limited to 140 cars and the Carrick-on-Suit Motor Club expect a full list of competitors. The stages, variations of which have been usedover the past 40 years or so, are fast but challenging and will provide excellent competition for competitors and spectacular action for spectators.

The rally is round 5 of the Suirway Group South East Stages Rally Championship and round 3 of the Southern 4 Rally Championship. Both of these championships are well supported by competitors from all regions of the country despite their titles.

Many times over the years the driver whose first rally win was on the Ravens Rock Rally went on to have a successful rally career. Winning your first event is often the most difficult but once that win is under your belt success follows success

Clerk of the Course for this 2016 Ravens Rock Rally is Terence Kearney who heads a pragmatic and resourceful team of experienced competitors and officials. Waterford and in particular Ballybricken, where the ceremonial start will be on Saturday evening 25th June, will be a hub of excitement where the rally experience will be brought to the public who would not normally be exposed to the fuel filled adrenaline rush that is at the heart and soul of rallying.
