The 44th running of the Rose Hotel Circuit of Kerry Rally will take place on April 2 and planning for the Kerry Motor Club event is now at an advanced stage for the event.

The rally will be officially launched on Wednesday, March 22 with proceedings getting underway at The Rose Hotel from 7:30 pm.

There will be guest speakers in attendance as well as opportunities to see rally cars up close and personal. There will be a meet and greet with drivers and members of the organising committee and light refreshments will be served.

The nine-stage route, which covers over 110km of competitive action, is sure to test some of the best drivers in the country. The route, localised to the Cordal, Knocknagoshel, and Balymac areas and includes multiple variations to some classic stages. The Rally headquarters will once again be at the rally’s title sponsor, The Rose Hotel, with the service park also located on the hotel grounds.

The rally is the second round of the Triton National Rally Championship. Kerry Motor Club member Noel O’Sullivan was on the notes for Callum Devine as the Derry/Kerry combination took the top step of the podium at the championship opener in the Midlands Moto Rally earlier this month. The Rose Hotel Circuit of Kerry is the opening round of the Top Park West Coast Championship, which is celebrating its 30th year and the second round of the local Central Car Sales Kingdom of Kerry Championship.
