2018 Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Rally Championship Round 2 Report

Posted: September 4, 2018 6:20 AM

Josh Moffett & Stephen Thornton got their 2018 Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Championship back on track with a hard fought victory on the second round of the series, the Treaty Plant Hire Limerick Forest Rally. Driving a Ford Fiesta R5 they took a while to settle and were lying third until Stage 6 when leaders Andrew Purcell & Mark Wiley picked up a puncture and damaged a wheel. Moffetts stage six time catapulted him into the lead ahead of Barry McKenna & Leon Jordan with Purcell dropping 40 seconds and into third place. That was the way it remained till the finish with Moffetts Fiesta coming out on top by 13.8 seconds from McKenna’s similar car with Purcell’s Fiesta R5 in third place another 14 seconds further back.

David Crossen & Aileen Kelly made up for the disappointment of a first stage retirement on the previous round and were an impressive 8th overall and top 2WD car in their Escort. They were pushed hard all the way by Shane McGirr & Eamon Hayes in a Toyota Starlet with less than fifteen seconds separating the pair by the end of the eight stages. Mickey Conlon who took top points on the opening round had to settle for third this time around.

The Junior Category was won by Marty Gallagher & Dean O’Sullivan in a Peugeot 208 R2 who were very impressive on their way to 12th overall. Derek Mackarel and & Daire Hayes pushed them hard all day in their Vauxhall Nova and were only twelve seconds behind their rivals with both crews recovering from a non-finish on the opening round. John O’Sullivan and Padraig O’Donovan were third in the category in a Ford Fiesta R2.

The M. O’Brien Plant Hire Junior 1000 category for 15-19 year olds saw Jason Murphy take his second maximum score of the season in his Peugeot 107. Peter Beaton from Scotland pushed Murphy very hard and brought his similar car home second just 18 seconds behind. Aoife Gahan (Chevrolet Spark) was a further minute back ahead of Rory Byrne (Citroen C1).

2018 Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Rally Championship Round 2 Preview

Posted: March 23, 2018 8:56 AM

The Treaty Plant Hire Limerick Forest Rally takes place this Sunday 25th March, three weeks after its postponement due to ‘Storm Emma’. The Silvermines based rally is the second round of the Valvoline Motorsport Ireland National Forest Rally Championship and has attracted a very impressive field of almost 90 cars to date. Clerk of the Course Kieran Ambrose has plotted a route of 8 stages (4 locations used twice) totalling close to 75kms.

The impressive list is headed by Josh Moffett & Stephen Thornton who will be hoping for better luck than in the last round at Carrick on Suir. Josh will be match fit as this will be his third weekend in a row behind the wheel following good results on tarmac in Mayo and West Cork. Andrew Purcell who leads the championship will once again provide Moffett with a stiff test in his Fiesta R5 while Barry McKenna was very impressive in Waterford and starts at number three here. Stephen McCann took an excellent third place in Carrick despite a relative lack of gravel experience and will provide a threat to the front three. Gerard Lucey, Conor McCourt & Michael Carbin are also capable of a good result while Enda McCormack & Cathan McCourt are also out in R5 machinery. John Coyne and Pauric Duffy are more known for tarmac exploits but are entered in a Subaru Impreza WRC & Fiesta R5 respectively.

The 2WD category is always competitive and this coming weekend will showcase more of the same with Mickey Conlon hoping to maintain his lead of the championship following an excellent tenth overall in Carrick. His rivals Shane McGirr & David Crossen failed to finish the first round so will be looking to claw back some of the deficit this weekend. John Gordon and Tommy O’Connell both finished the opening round but both suffered significant delays at either end of the event but they have points on the board and will be looking to improve on that this weekend.

The Junior Category was very competitive also in the opening round with James Wilson taking top points. He is the top seeded Junior for Limerick but has a string of very fast rivals behind him such as Jordan Hone, Derek Mackarel, John O’Sullivan, Johnnie Mulholland, Jody McManus and Marty Gallagher to name a few. The M. O’Brien Plant Hire Junior 1000 class sees 2017 champion and current leader Jason Murphy up against Peter Beaton and Aoife Gahan from the opening round as well as Rory Byrne who brings is Citroen C1 to the woods for the first time this year.

The action begins at 9:37am with the opening stage art Keeper Hill, followed by the Cournanine test. These stages are repeated before the afternoon loop which takes in two runs over Arra Mountain & Ballyhourigan. The first car is due back at Parc Ferme at around 4.20pm.

NEW DATE - 25 Mar 18

Posted: March 1, 2018 2:20 PM

"Hello everyone

It is with a very heavy heart I write this note.

As most of you who know me or know of me I don’t give up too easy.

But this time I have to concede to the beast from the east and her friend storm Emma. They have thrown everything at us in the past week but unfortunately they have taken this battle but they haven’t taken the war. Unfortunately the thoughts of an Irish version of rally Sweden just wasn’t to be.

But we will be back in the not so distant future.

With road conditions in a very bad way for competitors and marshal’s along with the services such as the ambulances and the rescue units and the doctor / Advance Paramedics trying to get to the event and home after I feel it would be selfish of me to ask anyone to travel in such conditions

At the end of the day we are all about running safe events. This means getting everyone to the event during the running of the event and getting home safely after so for this reason I am POSTPONED the limerick forestry which was to run on the 4th of March.

Once again I say thanks to each and every one for the support and help in the last number of weeks no matter how big or small it was I am for ever grateful.

To all the competitors that entered the event I sincerely thank you for supporting our event and hope you come back to the event when it runs again in the near future.

It is the planned to run the event on the 25th of March 2018 subject to approval by MI.

I would like to thank the Munster Car Club and also WestMeath & District Motor Club and Co. Monaghan Motor Club for their help and cooperation in being able to adjust to this date. I would ask where possible support and thank these clubs when they run there events in the future.

Once again thanks for everything Yours in motorsport"

Press Release 1

Posted: January 4, 2018 7:05 AM

Happy new year one and all.

Hope you are recovered after your Christmas and New Year break and are ready to face into another year of high speed and high action motorsport.

We are pleased to announce the wheels are in motion for the 2018 Limerick Motor Club forestry rally in association with Treaty Plant Hire limerick.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gary and all the team at treaty plant for their support.

This year we have decided to head to the Silvermines area. Which is only 13km form the M7 junction 25 or 16km form junction 27.

Some of these stage haven’t been rallied since 2007 / 2008.

Following on from the successful event ran in 2016 in Murroe we decided to rest some of the challenging stages like Glenstal and Mother Mountain to be able to keep the rally loop as small as possible while basing it around the Silvermines area.

This year the competitors will face 72 stage km’s in 4 stage locations the longest stage being an 11km and the shortest 7.5km

Regs and entry forms to be available in the next few weeks.
