A new sponsorship deal has been announced for the Topaz Donegal International Rally.
The three-year sponsorship deal coincides with the 40th Anniversary of the rally.
More than 150 drivers from all over the country will participate in this year’s Topaz Donegal International Rally from June 17 to 19, 2011.
The Clerk of the Course, Danny Gormley said: “The Topaz Donegal International Rally is the biggest annual sporting event in the northern half of the country and we could not stage an event of this magnitude without the extremely generous financial support of Topaz.
“This year we are celebrating our 40th birthday and the signing of a new three year deal is a vote of confidence in the event and a huge boost for the North West as a whole” Gormley said.
Topaz Chief Executive Eddie O’Brien said: “Since the first Rally in 1971, this event has enjoyed a reputation as Ireland’s leading rally. Initiatives such as the town stage in Buncrana means the event continues to enjoy huge support and this year will attract up to 70,000 spectators.
“As an Irish-owned and managed company we know how important the Rally is to the local economy, particularly the tourism sector and we wish the Rally and all associated with it, continued success.”
