Sligo Stages Rally offers 3 Championship options again for 2018

With planning progressing well for the July 8th Sligo Stages, Connacht Motor Club are delighted to bring together a winning formula similar to last year, to host the 2018 event .

Taking on the mantle as Clerk of the Course, Robert Lyttle who now holds the record of most number of events at the helm, will undoubtedly bring some innovative edges to the already well primed event management. His knowledge in both the planning and deliverance of stages events, supported by a dedicated experienced team, will present competitors with a well run, well orchestrated event on the day.

One of the key ingredients in event preparation is the financial support from sponsors, and once again Connacht Motor Club are delighted to confirm, both Faac Simply Automatic and Sligo Park Hotel as joint title sponsors.

Faac Simply Automatic, a leading global brand in the manufacturing of automation for Gates & Barriers, Entrances & Automatic Doors & Access Control Systems are now synonymous within rallying circles, with Ciaran, Aine, Cormac and Katja regular participants at rallies around the country. Following a successful association last year with Faac and the local distribution wing National Automation, Connacht Motor Club are excited to expand this relationship in 2018.

Of course Sligo Park Hotel has been connected with Sligo Stages Rally now for nearing three decades, renowned for its hospitality and generally accepted as the home of rallying in Sligo. Its recent extensive programme of refurbishment and branding has further enhanced the comforts and profile of this contemporary style four star hotel.

Sligo Stages Rally is once again a round of three of the most prestigious championships in the country, the Triton National Championship, the Sligo Pallets Border Championship and the Top Part West Coast Championship .
