A new home for the Ulster Rally in 2016, Derry/Londonderry. A vibrant city that has received ‘City of Culture’ status and a place that is used to hosting events. Run late into Friday night, the Ulster is one of the few events that will offer night tests to our competitors.
Local Jonny Greer details some of the challenges of the Ulster Rally. “They are always good stages. The organisers seem to be able to come up with tests that offer everything: bumps, jumps, fast sections, smooth tarmac and then really tight, technical sections.”
“It’s great to have some night-time stages as well. We don’t get to do much in the dark nowadays and it is always a different atmosphere are night. You see the hi-vis jackets of the marshals and spectators, the flash bulbs going off at junctions and it really focuses your driving. You only have this narrow window, highlighted by the spotlights in which to work and it drags you in.”
“The Ulster Rally is always really well organised, a great event with a good atmosphere. And with a new city hosting it, I can’t wait to get out on the stages.”
