Halloween Historic Stages

Friday, 22 April 2011 18:08


It is with great regret that the Carrick on Suir Motor Club logo homepageannounce that they will NOT be hosting their Halloween Historic Stages Rally as part of their 2011 event calendar. Last year the South Tipperary Motor Club broke new ground in organising and promoting their first dedicated Historic Stages Rally but from the outset of the 2011 season the club have faced countless problems in securing a date for the 2011 event. 

Clerk of the Course for the 2010 Donagh O'Sullivan stated "My event committee and I initially proposed an event date for 2011 but from the beginning of the year we encountered opposition from other motor clubs. After trying every avenue to find a date that would suit everyone, we are left with no alternative but to postpone the event for 2011. At this time I would like to thank the members of my event team for their work throughout the organisation and running of last year's event. I would also like to thank the Carrick on Suir Motor Club for giving me the opportunity to take the position of COC for the inaugural running of the Rally. I want to thank all the sponsors that came onboard and helped to make the event should a success. Finally I would like to thank all the competitors who participated on the day. It was very rewarding to see all our work come to pass on that Sunday in October. It had been my ambition to run such an event in Carrick on Suir, I feel very proud of what we all achieved and my goal now is to get the Halloween Stages Rally back on the event calendar as soon as possible."
