West Cork 2020 - Press Release 3
The West Cork Rally has a long-standing reputation for delivering a world class event that is affordable and enjoyable for all our competitors. Our rally is organised by competitors for competitors and we will always strive to deliver safety, value, and enjoyment for all our competitors, whether you run Car 1 or Car 160 – This is a core value of The West Cork Rally and indeed Cork Motor Club.
Recently we have all witnessed the introduction of additional regulation, complexity and cost to our sport. This has placed an additional cost burden on entries across all rally events.
The organising team of the 2020 West Cork Rally are proud to announce that this additional cost will not be passed on to our competitors in 2020. After careful examination of our event budget and some difficult decisions we are pleased to announce that the 2020 entry fees for all categories will remain the same as those of 2019.
Mainfield:€1095 – 14 stages – 220km stages Historic: €725 – 10 stages – 170km stages stages – 220km stages Historic: €725 – 10 stages – 170km stages
Junior: €500 – All day Sunday – 6 stages – 110km stages – Note: If Driver & Navigator Marshal on Saturday they receive a further €100 discount.
Cork Motor Club have made the decision to absorb these additional costs and charges rather than simply passing them on to our valued competitors. We have made this decision as we believe that in times of uncertainty leadership
is required. Many in the Sport are hopeful of a change of policy at National Level that would allow a reduction in costs for all events. Should this happen for our sport, in addition to keeping 2020 WCR entry fees the same as 2019, Cork Motor Club will also deliver the following to our competitors:
Should Motorsport Ireland revise their current charging structure and regulations between the date of issue of this press release and Friday March 13th, 2020, Cork Motor Club will refund the value of any additional savings achieved to each competitor who starts the 2020 West Cork Rally. The sport must be sustainable at all levels, including for the ordinary Clubman, and Cork Motor Club can and will deliver the cost saving on items we control – we would hope that the powers that be do the same.
Regulations are currently with Motorsport Ireland and the F.I.A. and will be available to download from www.westcorkrally.com early next week.
