Triton Showers (a company with strong links to Ballyduff) to return as sponsor of National Rally Championship

Not alone is the National Rally Championship returning after its two-year hiatus

due to the pandemic, but the series is proud to announce that previous sponsor

Triton Showers has agreed to underpin the eight-round championship that begins

on the first Sunday in March with the Claremorris based Mayo Rally. The

sponsorship agreement is for a four year tenure.

Prior to the start of the 2019 season and unwilling to see the series without a title

sponsor, Triton Showers decided it would back the series for a further year to

allow the organisers seek a new sponsor for the 2020 season. However, Covid-19

brought a halt to Irish stage rallying for some sixteen months, not alone was it a

loss in term of sport, but local communities throughout the country were unable to

avail of the financial windfall from such events.

Commenting on the company’s decision to renew its involvement with the series,

managing director of Triton Showers, Kevin Barrett said. “Triton Showers are

delighted to again add our support to the series. We are very aware that the past

two years have been very tough on everybody. Sport plays an enormous part in

the daily lives of Irish people and rallying was one of the many sports that were hit

in the past while. The return of Gaelic games and other such sporting disciplines

in recent weeks have already provided a great bounce and we know that rallying

will do the same to its communities. Of course, we are mindful that Covid-19

hasn’t gone away, and we ask that everyone continues to adhere to the

guidelines.”

In addition to the Triton Showers sponsorship, the series has also announced that

Ritchie’s Mints and Projob Workwear will be associate sponsors of the series that

concludes in Donegal in early October.

Meanwhile, championships Chairman Declan Tumilty commented. “We are thrilled

that Triton Showers are onboard again. Since they became involved in 2015, the

series went from strength to strength evidenced by the fact that during their five-

year tenure as title sponsors, there were five different champions. We are also

delighted to welcome Ritchie’s Mints and Projob Workwear as associate sponsors

of the series.”

Motorsport Ireland President Aiden Harper expressed his delight, he remarked,

“This is a great endorsement of the national series and we look forward to

continued success through our association with Triton Showers.”
