County Kerry is the place to be for motorsport fans in November as the Irish rally season draws to a close on the roads of The Kingdom. Two of Ireland’s most-popular rallies will take place just three weeks apart.
First up is the Banna Beach Resort Kerry Winter Rally, an event that is this year celebrating its 25th anniversary and is set to take place on Sunday November 9th.
Organised by the Tralee-based Kerry Motor Club, the rally is the final round of the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship. The rally will take place on closed roads in the North Kerry area with centralised servicing at Listowel Racecourse. It is expected to draw a capacity entry of 130 cars.
Three weeks later the Rentokil-Initial Killarney Historic Rally takes place. This is the only rally in Ireland that caters exclusively for historic-specification rally cars and has grown in stature and international recognition since its inception in 1996. The Saturday, November 29th event will use some of Ireland’s most-famous rally roads including the world-respected Moll’s Gap. The Killarney and District Motor Club organised event is the opening round of the 2015 Clonakilty Black Pudding Irish Tarmac Historic Rally
Championship and will attract 150 competitors from all over Ireland and Britain.
