Motorsport Ireland Increase Licence Fees

COMPETITION LICENCE FEES: Licence fees for 2016 are returning to 2010 levels. Since 2011, a reduction of 10% has been applied to the cost of all licences, and after five years of this concession, the Motor Sport Commission has decided, with the improving economic environment, to restore licence fees to the levels last seen six years ago. To reduce the amount of administration required, all fees for 2016 have been rounded, up or down, to the nearest €5.

ALMC 2015 Winners

Mark Straker and Michael Coady, 2015 ALMC Rally Winners

The UK/Irish pairing of Mark Straker and Michael Coady swept to victory on the ALMC Rally based in Trim, Co. Meath.

Darrian driver Straker, who trailed fellow UK driver Simon Mauger after the opening stage, hit the front on stage 2 and remained there for the duration of the event. In challenging conditions, Straker found himself fending off Subaru driver Steve Wood as the day progressed, with Wood getting to within a mere 1.5 seconds of the Darrian. Despite the slippy conditions and only having rear wheel drive, Straker replied in magnificent fashion, scoring fastest times on stages 4, 5 and 7 to secure a 10.6 victory from Wood. Early leader Mauger had to settle for 3rd in his unusual Millington engined Metro. Simon Chapman claimed 4th position in his Proton Satria while David Hardie rounded out the top 5 in his Subaru Impreza. Monaghan driver Jim McKenna came home 6th overall and was the top Irish driver after a daylong battle with Pat Donegan. McKenna and Donegan were only separated by 8.2 seconds at the finish in their Mark 2 Escorts.

Brian Brady and Leonard Tuite won the junior section of the rally in their Honda Integra. Brady and Tuite ended the event with a convincing winning margin of 1 minute 24.8 seconds over Patrick Lawlor and Kevin Rohan. The historic honours went to Niall and Conor Keane in their Talbot Sunbeam.

Due to an incident on stage 7, stages 8 and 9 of the event did not run due to time constraints
