Motorsport Ireland have confirmed the cancellation of the National Stages Rally championship and National Forestry championship due to the current Covid 19 restrictions.
In a short statement the association, noted that
“This decision has been taken as a result of several rounds of both championships being cancelled due to the restrictions which we now live under. Even though some events may run later this year, no event will hold National Championship status for 2020.”
The Cavan Motorclub were due to host Round 4 this Sunday May 24th.
Motorsport Ireland also acknowledged the large amount of work put into both championships by the respective championship sub-commissions and the Rally Commission as a whole.
Many of the rounds were fully organised and we thank the clubs for the huge effort that they have put into their events, hopefully some of them may run this year.
They also thanked the championship sponsors for their continued support over many years, Triton for the National Stages Rally Championship and Valvoline for the National Forestry Rally Championship, along with many other associate sponsors.
