Killarney and District Motor Club to launch Killarney Towers Hotel and Leisure Centre Killarney Historic Rally

Killarney and District Motor Club will launch the 2023 Killarney Towers Hotel and Leisure Centre Killarney Historic Rally on Sunday (November 12).

The launch event will take place at the Plazza Hotel at 3 pm and the club extends an open invitation for all motorsport enthusiasts to attend.

Already the entry is near capacity with nearly 70 genuine historic cars already pledged for the event.

“We will be in a position to announce some of the top entries at the launch,” said clerk of the course Anthony O’Connor.

Group General Manager of the O'Donoghue Ring Collection; parent group to Killarney Towers Hotel and Leisure Centre, Brian Lawlor added:

“It is with great pride that we announce Killarney Towers Hotel and Leisure Centre as the official sponsor of the 2023 Killarney Historic Rally. Holding international recognition as Ireland's foremost historic rally, the series draws a substantial number of skilled competitors annually. We look forward to supporting such a historic calendar event and to providing a memorable experience for all participants."

Details of a new route are expected to be announced at the launch.

Some favourite classics as well as former Rally of the Lakes roads not previously used in the Historic Rally will be included.

However, this year’s rally will not feature the iconic Moll’s Gap stage.

Kerry County Council are currently working on a section of road near the tunnel.

The December 2 rally will also feature a night stage for the first time in years.

The event’s associate sponsors include Reen’s Rathmore and the Killarney Advertiser. Entries close on November 10.
