Rally merchandise suppliers, McEvoy Motorsport, will sponsor the Modified Irish Tarmac Rally Championship in 2023.
The deal further shows the current interest in Ireland’s leading rally championship and will strengthen its presence across the Emerald Isle.
McEvoy Motorsport is a family business that has grown from its inception 16 years ago. The merchandise manufacturer has over 20 machines focusing on Irish rallying with designs covering several rounds of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
The Tarmac Rally Organisers Association is grateful for McEvoy Motorsport’s interest and support for its modified category. The Modified ITRC battles were at their spectacular best in 2022 with an extremely high level of competition across all classes.
The 2022 Modified Irish Tarmac Rally Championship went down to the wire on a gruelling Ulster Rally. Simon Reid and John Murphy survived inclement conditions to seal an unforgettable championship success.
Colman Hegarty, TROA chairman:
“Everyone involved with the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship is delighted to welcome Gary and Sharon McEvoy as sponsors of ITRC’s modified category in 2023. We look forward to working with Gary and Sharon over the season ahead.
“As a championship, it is fantastic to have a company like McEvoy Motorsport as partners because they really understand our sport and our championship.
“Hopefully we will have a long and fruitful partnership.”
Gary and Sharon McEvoy, McEvoy Motorsport:
“We initially started our merchandise business to help fund our love for rallying, helping pay for fuel and tyres.
“The business expanded and five years later we bought our own embroidery machine. It gave us more flexibility to design for clubs and competitors.
“Our Irish Rally Merchandise collection includes Galway, West Cork, Killarney, Donegal, and Cork 20 rallies – plus the ever-popular Mk2 Magic range.
“It is great to play a part in raising the profile of our sport and we are proud to be able to sponsor a series like the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
“We look forward to seeing you all with our mobile merchandise units across most events in Ireland this year.”
