    Default 2016 Circuit of Ireland

    Surprised that I couldn't find a thread for the 2016 event, when I went looking, so I started this one.

    Looks like the event has moved away from the Titanic Quarter and will now be based at The Kings Hall.

    Press release:

    Seams like a short term base if theres talk of the kings hall complex being redeveloped soon....I wonder could a relocation to the maze be on the cards for future years or will they find somewhere else in Belfast

    - on the face of it I think its shaping up to be a great event - seems to be a good buzz with the Irish, British and European championships in town....I was a bit wary of the WRC car rule changes but looks like we might get the best of both worlds and if the R5 cars take off here and in the BRC it might actually give a more level playing field in terms of machinery for younger drivers here to have a crack at both titles - something we've not really seen since the likes of Finley in the Gp A escort days - any championship is only as good as the competition and with the likes of young evans in the DMACK car tackling the BRC, any up and coming driver that could beat him is going to increase their prospects a heck of a lot

    Great news for local rally fans as both the Circuit of Ireland and Ulster rallies will enjoy a return to terrestrial TV after the organisers of the MSA British Rally Championship has struck a deal with Channel 4 to cover the seven-round series.


    The rally championship, which begins in March, will also be shown on BT Sport as part of a new broadcast package that will ensure that the high octane action reaches as many fans as possible.

    I would expect so, as in previous years.
    Usually can be ordered about 2 weeks before the event.
    keep an eye on the "Spectators" section on the event web-site for details/order nearer the time.

    Also, just while I'm on here, talking about the Circuit, you may, or may not, have seen the Press Release last week, giving some more "teaser" info about the stages. The main point of interest in the release was that on the Friday stages (Co. Antrim area), the classic Torr Head and Glendun Stages are being combined into 1 big one of approx. 30 kms.

    Just a reminder to possible entrants ..................... Entries close for both Internationals & Nationals on Tuesday (15th. March).

    Last year, some entries didn't keep to the correct date, and ended up on the Reserve list, and didn't get in.

    National section is over-subscribed - will depend on how many more entries come in for the International section whether or not there will be several disappointed 'national' crews.

    I can't imagine they'd want to be running with the Nationals, definitely not, if you ask me......

    Anyway, wasn't the whole idea of this R5 stampede was so that there'd be uniformity from all nations, irrespective of what championship a crew were involved in.


    So, based on the "R5 fits all", will this mean that there'll be ERC, BRC and TROA all running alongside each other in the Top 10 or 15???
