Entries Open for Rally Isle of Man’s 50th Anniversary!


Rally Isle of Man Ltd and Druidale Motor Club Ltd have today published the regulations for the three events that make up this year’s Rally Isle of Man’s 50th anniversary event.

Available for all competitors on the rally’s website www.rallyisleofman.co.im the regulations cover the three-day historic Isle of Man Rallee Classicagh, the return of the Manx International Rally, and the one and a half day Manx Trophy Rally.


Rallee Classicagh is the penultimate round of the Irish Tarmac Championship and the Manx International Rally will form part of the Eurocars Motorsport Manx Rally Championship.  The three day event will take place over the traditional and classic stages made famous by this rally over the last 50 years. This year sees the return of some old favourites, only fitting for the 50th anniversary, the new improved Douglas Promenade stage and some new stages to keep the event fresh and challenging.  The fabulous Group B cars will be here to wow the crowds at Douglas Promenade on the Thursday evening to showcase everyone’s favourite cars.

Pre-registration for the event has been fantastic with many marshals, timekeepers, spectators and competitors coming out of the woodwork to be part of a very special event.  Rumours are hitting the airwaves that there may even be a couple of well known competitors dusting of their overalls to compete.  The event is also open to competitors from Europe and Ireland as it is registered as a ‘National Event with Authorised Foreign Participation (NEAFP)’, allowing Rally Isle of Man to accept entries from non-UK and Irish license holders.  Rallee Classicagh will be run as a National A event and the Manx International Rally and Manx Trophy Rally will be run as National B events.

Rally Isle of Man takes place on 12-14 September 2013.
