This year's Circuit of Munster Stages Rally will take place on Sunday the 2nd of June. Limerick Motor Club are excited to announce that Lyons of Limerick have pledged their support for this year's event!
Lyons of Limerick are the main Ford dealer in Limerick city and county. Father and son Ken and Keith are also no strangers to the Circuit of Munster and are delighted to be part of it this year. Keith feels like "it is a very good partnership, the Circuit of Munster is an event both myself and Ken love competing in and is of course our local rally. We thought it would be a great idea to bring the rally back closer to the city and to our HQ here in Ballysimon, our business is Motor Cars so it's fitting that our hobby is motorsport." (quote taken from rally.ie)
The most notable changes for this year's event in comparison to last year, is the change in location. The rally was moved from West Limerick to East Limerick. Clerk of the Course Shane O'Collaghan explained that it made sense to move the event closer to the city and the nearby motorway network, in order to get more exposure for the city and live up to the club's name "Limerick City & County Motor Club".
Keith Lyons in his Ford Fiesta R5, to which he switched in early 2018. He has since gone from strength to strength.
This year's event is Round 4 of the Triton National Rally Championship and Round 3 of the Top Part West coast Rally Championship and is hosting 3 of the best stages East Limerick has on offer with 120 max permitted stage kilometres. On top of that, the Rally HQ, Service, Parc Ferme & Trailer Park are all less than 2 minutes off the M7, making it easy to find and accessible.
Guaranteed a friendly welcome and memorable weekend!
