The media launch for the 2019 Ollie Kierce Cars Imokilly Mini Stages Rally took place at the Midleton Park Hotel last week. Firstly, there was a photoshoot, then it was off to the hotel where there was a run-through of the event itself, one of the biggest sporting events in East Cork this year.
Pat Maguire, Clerk of the Course, said: “Our club is hugely indebted to Ollie Kierce Cars, Carrigtwohill, for his support of our event as the main sponsor.” He stated: “I would like to welcome everyone to the launch where there will be a selection of rally cars on display and a chance to meet our main sponsor and our associate sponsors.” Pat added: “Even at this stage there is huge interest in the event and a few Welsh crews have expressed an interest in doing the rally.”
The 2019 rally will take place on Sunday, July 21. The event’s HQ will be the Midleton Park Hotel and, this year, the club will use the familiar format of two stages run three times with service after stages two and four.
