New for 2020 rules instigated by Motorsport Ireland mean that all crews driving 00 safety cars on rallies will have to be licenced.
The new licence will be separate to the competitor’s competition licence which will also have to be applied for.
As part of the new roll out, the first training session will take place in the Brehon Hotel in Killarney this Tuesday night.
The two local clubs, Kerry Motor Club and Killarney and District Motor Club, will be joined by Limerick and Skibereen and District Motor Clubs at the 2.5-hour training session.
Clubs have previously nominated their 00 drivers during club meetings in the summer and after a selection-process drivers were picked to attend this week’s training sessions.
