Gate price up from £10 to £15 will be interesting to see how much it affects the attendance

I seen that too steve.....i'll still be there, its a great relaxing day out instead of all the usual running around the roads to the next stage etc but I think £15 each is steep. it will still get the rally enthusiastic fan but for a family deciding to go out for the day to lurgan park rally it will be a no no unfortunately.

Some good info from website

Champion Day Promised at Lurgan Park.

The popular Lurgan Park Rally, once again backed by Orchard Motorsport and taking place on Saturday 28th June, is attracting some very high calibre drivers indeed.

First entry in was from 11 times winner Kenny McKinstry, often dubbed ‘King of the Park’. Judging by the quality of the top drivers who have now committed to enter, that include current Tarmac Champion and last year’s Lurgan Park winner Garry Jennings, as well as this year’s Circuit of Ireland National winner Declan Boyle, both in Subaru Impreza WRC’s. Former 5 times Tarmac Champion Eugene Donnelly has entered, car unspecified. While a very welcome visitor from Clonakilty, Co. Cork, Kevin Kelleher, who finished in 3rd place last year in his Subaru, is also making the trip. Derek McGarrity, another former multiple Tarmac Champion, has declared his intention to compete in a new Mini WRC. The Escort Challenge is always a big feature in Lurgan Park, and one of the top exponents, Wesley Patterson, has entered. The event is to receive full television coverage by RPM on UTV.

The format of the rally is very similar to last year, with 8 stages throughout the day, starting just after 10.00 am and finishing at 4.30pm, with the start, Finish and all the action within the confines of the Park.

One of the major factors to the success of Lurgan Park over the years is that the organising North Armagh Club has restricted the entry to around 50 selected competing cars so as to provide non stop high quality action. The quality factor would seem to be building in abundance for this year. Another major key to the success of the event is the natural beauty and amphitheatre quality of the Park itself, which not only provides great viewing, but also a tremendous paddock area that has an Ascot like ambience, albeit it with different type of hats and horsepower. The place to meet and socialise with the drivers and old friends! Craigavon Borough Council supports the rally in many ways, but especially with the use of this beautiful park.

You never know, Donie, those ole R4 things may, one day, have a huge following!

Oh, hang, on, you're not talking about Colin McRae's R4 project but the every-lovely MG Metro 6R4. Keep it quiet, just between the two of us, but I have a bit of an interest in 6R4s myself. This may come as a bit of a shock, in which case, I'm sorry for that, but the sight and sound of the venerable Metro gets my juices flowing. And it's 30 years old this year! Hurrah!

If there are any 6R4s participating, can someone get some piccies, please?

Many thanks, and for those heading to 'The Park', have a great time. I'm very jealous!!

Cheers, Steve

Hi Alan,

Thanks for that... perhaps I could pop over and collect the stick? I'm along the road in East Molesey! :-)

Some shots suitable for decal-making would be superb (i.e. from all sides and near enough to get the gist!), but anything would be good.

All the very best and ebnjoy your trip, Steve

Crowds are down this year, although the craic is buzzing, still good event, close to the action and plenty vantage points to those budding photographer's

Crowds are down, so better access for you, Alan?

Hope the weather is conducive to photography and on-course action. It's on and off rain back here at home.  Rolling Eyes 

Take it easy and enjoy the 'atmos', Steve
