The winner’s of this year’s Rentokil Killarney Historic Rally will receive a free entry into the 2015 Barbados Rally Carnival.

This year’s rally, the only event in Ireland to cater solely for historic rally cars, is set to run on Saturday November 29.

Organiser, Killarney and District Motor Club under the guidance of clerk of the course Kevin Flannery, has selected a typically challenging route.

Classic stages, like Molls Gap, Ballaghabeama, Carragh Lake and Gortnagane, often rated by rally drivers as being the best and most-challenging in the world, will each be tackled twice over the course of the day. The second run over Gortnagane, which runs in parallel to the main Rathmore to Killarney road, will be run under the cover of darkness.

The rally always attracts a strong entry from Ireland and abroad but the new Barbados prize package will be welcomed by competitors new and old.

Mr Flannery said:
“The prize includes free of cost: entry on both motor sport events during the Carnival, two return flights from London to Barbados, free return shipping for one car from Portsmouth dock to Barbados and a double hotel room for 12 nights.”

Rentokil Ireland managing director Michael O'Mahone said: “On behalf of Rentokil Initial I am once again delighted to be associated with this year’s Killarney Historic Rally. Due to the phenomenal success of last year’s event and our desire to support the local community and businesses that have supported Rentokil Initial so loyally over many years that we are once again involved.

“It's interesting to note that this year’s winner will receive entry, flights etc. to the Barbados Rally Carnival, l a place where Rentokil Initial Initial also has a very strong presence”

The event, which provides a welcome end of season boost to Ireland’s tourism capital will be, once again, based at the Gleneagle Hotel in the town. It will form the opening round of the 2015 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.

Motorsport fans set to flock to The Kingdom of Kerry in November

County Kerry is the place to be for motorsport fans in November as the Irish rally season draws to a close on the roads of The Kingdom.

Two of Ireland’s most-popular rallies will take place just three weeks apart.

First up is the Banna Beach Resort Kerry Winter Rally, an event that is this year celebrating its 25th anniversary and is set to take place on Sunday November 9. Organised by the Tralee-based Kerry Motor Club, the rally is the final round of the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship.

The rally will take place on closed roads in the North Kerry area with centralised servicing at Listowal Racecourse.

It is expected to draw a capacity entry of 130 cars.

Three weeks later the Rentokil-Initial Killarney Historic Rally takes place. This is the only rally in Ireland that caters exclusively for historic-specification rally cars and has grown in stature and international recognition since its inception in 1996.

The Saturday, November 29 event will use some of Ireland’s most-famous rally roads including the world-respected Moll’s Gap.

The Killarney and District Motor Club organised event is the opening round of the 2015 Clonakilty Black Pudding Irish Tarmac Historic Rally Championship and will attract 150 competitors from all over Ireland and Britain.
