Breaking: Patrick Snijers in a Martini Lancia Delta confirmed for DeJa Vu Tralee – road run entries available but gala dinner nearly sold out

DeJa Motorsport enjoyed having Patrick Snijers with them on Donegal Deja Vu in the past so much that they had no hesitation in inviting him back to take part in Deja vu Tralee.

The Belgian rally hero and legend will take part in the Tralee-based event in May.

Organiser Beatty Crawford explained:

“He enjoyed Donegal so much that he had jumped at the chance to come to Tralee,”

From Belgium, he has won seven Belgian national rally titles between 1983 and 1994. Outside Belgium, he was Dutch rally champion in 1992 and European Rally Champion in 1994.

He competed at Lurgan Park no less than six times in Willie Mckee’s Subarus, winning it twice and finishing second twice.

He won the Manx International in 1988 with Dany Colebunders co-driving, in a BMW M3 E30. They beat Jimmy McRae and Rob Arthur in a Sierra Cosworth by 31 secs. Malcolm Wilson was 5th and Pentti Airkkali 6th overall.

He will be driving Jonathan Radley’s stunning Lancia Delta and will be navigated by Nigel Walker.

There are still a few places available for entries but only five places remaining for the Gala Dinner. These can be booked at
