Circuit of Kerry

Plans for Kerry Motor Club’s Circuit of Kerry, set for April 5, are at an advanced stage after senior club officials completed a route survey over the Christmas break.

While details of the second round of the Triton Showers Irish National championship remain fluid, for the time being, clerk of the course Eoin Duffin has promised a radical shake-up of the route and hopes to include roads that have never been used for the Circuit of Kerry.

Club members, in a separate operation to the Motorsport Ireland effort attended last weekend’s Autosport International show where they spoke to several UK-based drivers in an effort to convince them to enter the Tralee-based rally which is also a round of the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship and the Moriarty’s Centra Kingdom of Kerry Rally Championship.
