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
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.”
