Wexford Motor Club is pleased to announce details of the 2017 Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally which takes place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10thof September.

The event will have 15 competitive stages – a combination of both smooth and technical tarmac.
The format will consist of two classic stages run 3 times on Saturday, followed by three brand new stages run three times on Sunday, making a total of over 220 Kilometres. As usual, scrutiny will be at Hertz in Ferrybank and central service will be at the Wexford Racecourse on the Newtown Road.

This year we are introducing Niall McCarthy as the new Clerk of the Course. Niall has progressed to the top job having gained 25years experience as an official and organiser of rally events with Wexford Motor Club as well as other clubs. Before that he spent some time as a rear wheel competitor. Niall is supported by an experienced rally organising committee.
