The Rallysport Association ‘Valentines Rally Sprints 2022’ will take place on Saturday’s the 12th and 19th of February at the Shackleton Industrial/Airfield Complex in Ballykelly.
The RSA has developed a new event formula for this event which has attracted a phenomenal interest from the rally fraternity from all corners of Ireland at the start of a new season of Irish Rallysport.
The unique RSA event formula has become popular with competitors and spectators due to the virtually non-stop high-speed action from a wide and diverse range of rally cars and the fastest growing development in European motorsport, the incredibly exciting internationally built racing buggies.
Spectators can enjoy the sounds and smells of a grid of beautiful, prepared rally cars including flame spitting World Rally Championship turbocharged Ford Fiesta, Hyundai and Skoda R5’s, Subaru Impreza’s and Mitsubishi EVO’s, a host of iconic superbly prepared Mk 1 & 2 Escorts and Toyota Corollas with up to 300bhp on tap, an array of high revving Honda’s, Peugeots and Renaults all gunning for class and Overall honours.
Many of Irelands leading motorsport personalities join these events to shake down new build cars in preparation of their motorsport year and where they can entertain sponsors, colleagues, and family friends in preparation for a new year of Irish motorsport.
You never know who the personalities and friends you will be able to meet at the Valentine Rally Sprints which has become a special annual sporting and social event for everyone at the start of the NI Motorsport annual calendar.
So, two spectacular days awaits at The Shackleton Industrial Complex on the Saturday’s of the 12th & 19th of February and everyone is welcome to come and enjoy another unique action-packed RSA Event at this fantastic venue.
Spectators are welcomed from 9am and early risers will enjoy free access to the driver’s service area and pits and will be able to experience first-hand the pre-event preparation, car scrutineering, the general competitor/organisation and competitors build up to the event which commences at 10am.
