Cork Motor Club becomes full TROA members

The Tarmac Rally Organisers Association is pleased to announce that Cork Motor Club, organisers of the West Cork International Rally, has become full members of TROA.

West Cork has been a part of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship since 2014. It held a round of the Modified and Historic championships before the mainfield also joined a year later.

The West Cork International Rally has continued to grow from strength to strength and its 2022 edition was a highlight of the rallying year so far.

Colman Hegarty, TROA chairman:

“Since its introduction in 2014, West Cork has established itself as an integral part of the championship. It’s a very popular round with our registered competitors and spectators alike.

“I would like to welcome the Cork Motor Club, West Cork International Rally, and their appointed TROA director, Mr Greg McCarthy, as full members of TROA Ltd.

“I look forward to working closely with all involved to promote their event and the championship long into the future.”

Paddy Flanagan, ITRC manager:

“I am delighted that the West Cork Rally is officially a full member of TROA and the ITRC.

“It has always been an iconic event with fantastic stages and this move can only enhance both the rally and the championship.”

Greg McCarthy, TROA director:

“Cork Motor Club is delighted to be full members of TROA and looks forward to working together with the board long into the future.

“The championship has been hugely beneficial to the West Cork Rally whilst we were guest members.

“We hope the rally will be equally as beneficial to the championship in the future too.”

Note for Historic competitors:

All competitors registered for the Historic section of the 2022 championship, please refer to articles 6.1 and 6.7 of the 2022 Acesigns Historic Rally Championship regulations.
