Wexford Rally 2024

Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally 2024 – Press Release 1 – WE ARE BACK!!

Wexford Motor Club are delighted to announce provisional details for its 2-day Tarmac Rally running this September. Graham Scallan once again takes the helm as COC with the Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally running on 14 and 15 September 2024. HQ remains in the Riverbank House Hotel, Wexford Town with the much-loved format of 3×3 stages each day, totaling 215km over 2 days and 18 stages. Regulations have been approved and entries will open in in two weeks, on Monday 15 July.

Saturday’s stages will run in Enniscorthy area with service in Enniscorthy mart. Sunday returns to the Wexford Town area with 3 stages in the south of the county and service based in Wexford Racecourse. As has been the case for the past 2 years, the stages have been picked by active competitors with competitors wishes in mind. The team have focussed on selecting flowing stages with good surfaces and minimal need for chicanes. Stages are easily looped making it possible to do a full 2 pass recce in one day. Sunday’s schedule has been devised with overseas and northern competitors in mind, allowing those with a long journey to get away as early as possible and home for a well-earned rest.

As with previous years, a ceremonial start will be held in the centre of Wexford Town on the Friday evening, giving spectators and the public a chance to see these fantastic machines up close. Plans are afoot to make this year’s ceremonial start more spectacular than ever. The famous after-rally party will be held in the Riverbank House Hotel after prize giving.

The Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally is organised and run by a dedicated team of Wexford Motor Club members who are assisted on the weekend by volunteers from all over the country. The core team of organisers from the Club spend over 10 months planning the rally and putting all elements into place. Over 300 marshals and volunteers will be required on the weekend of the event itself, with the now-famous Wexford Marshals draw returning as token of appreciation to all those who give up their time to make the event happen. If you are interested in getting involved as a marshal, please contact Chief marshal, Paul Connell on 087 7626090. Full training and accreditation are provided by Motorsport Ireland for people who would like to volunteer on the weekend.
