Wexford Motor Club is delighted to be the first motor club in Ireland to launch a new online payments system for entry into our calendar of motorsport events. With the rise in insurance costs and other costs related to the sport, we have launched this new scheme to help members and competitors to save and pay for entry into our events in a more convenient and flexible way, and to help keep the Clubman rallying.
The new online payment facility allows competitors pay for their entries for all Wexford Motor Club Events in stages. You can pay as little as €10 per installment or you can just pay the full entry fee in one go. So for example if you started paying €30 per week now, you could be taking part in our Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally 2017 in September!
An online gift of credit towards your motorsport entry would also make an ideal Valentine’s Day, birthday or Christmas gift, so please make sure to let your loved one know about our new scheme and you may find yourself with a nice surprise!

Wexford Motorclub would like to extend its thanks to all the Marshals, Stage Commanders, Radio Controllers, Radio Crews, Time Keepers, Safety Units and everyone else who give up their time to make the event happen.
Without your help, events like this could not run. Thank You for your continued support.
If you had thought of becoming involved in motorsport, the best way to do this without the expense of running a car is to marshal.
Admittedly, the weather cannot be guaranteed, particularly in Ireland, but you can get a lot of satisfaction by being part of a team of people on a 2 day Tarmac stage rally.
As well as general marshalling, which in itself is a vital & valuable role – there are other forms that include Time Keeping, Sector Marshal, Radio crews etc. If you think that this is something you may wish to get more involved with, a good way is to join your local Car or Motor Club or Wexford Motorclub, where you can speak to like minded people who would be only too willing to welcome you, and offer their experience.
If you wish to progress further within the sport, our governing body – Motorsport Ireland runs a licensing register of Marshals, that offers a grading scheme which takes you from a Trainee up to a Senior Official/ Organiser level should you.
In preparation for this year’s rally, we will need many marshals once again to help with the running of the event. If you are not planning to compete, please consider coming to help marshal, along with your colleagues & fellow club members to run, what we promise will be a challenging route for competitors.
If you are able to assist WMC, please contact either of our Chief Marshal’s :
