Loughgall Festival Top Entries received!

North Armagh Motor Club Ltd is delighted to be jointly promoting the Festival of Motorsport at Loughgall Country Park and especially pleased that the event proceeds will be distributed to local charities.

This is now our sixth year organising this unique event with Armagh Lions Club and the format of the Special Stage Rally for Historic Rally cars, the Apple Blossom Autotest and the Historic and Classic Vehicle Display along with Trade Stands has proved very successful. However, without the main sponsor, Burkes of Cornascriebe it could not happen and we are also grateful for the help and support of Armagh City and District Council, Dept. of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Forest Service and the many voluntary marshals and officials.

The main event, the Historic Rally will this year have six all tarmac Special Stages in the scenic parkland and spectator friendly setting of the Loughgall Country Park and is the only event in Northern Ireland with the emphasizes on Historic Rally cars.

Work on the rally is well underway and many entries have already been received including:

Last year’s winner Cookstown man Keith McIvor in his Porsche,

Second overall last year; Donal Connolly from Letterkenny in the Ford Escort RS2000 and

Lisburn’s Wesley Patterson in his new Ford Escort RS1800

We are confident with competitors of this quality it will be an exciting day of rally action.

The other competitive event is the Apple Blossom Autotest and entries are expected from Northern Ireland’s leading competitors for this driving spectacle held in the farm yard car parks and roads.

This annual motorsport extravaganza is a must for all motoring enthusiasts and a great day out for the whole family.
