Jim Walsh Cork Forestry 2013 – A Sample Video

The penultimate round of the Valvoline National Forestry Championship is nearly upon us. Traditionally, the Cork Motor Club run Jim Walsh Forestry rally is always one of the most popular events in the championship and this year should prove no exception. We made the Patterson Pacenotes earlier this week and are pleased to report that the stages are in great condition. Cork MC has put a lot of work into repairing the forest roads and without doubt, it has paid off handsomely. Fast and flowing well graded tracks make up most of the route and add in a bit of that famous Cork hospitality, anyone planning to be involved with the rally should have a great weekend. Below is a short video clip from the stages giving a fantastic insight into the quality of the roads. Enjoy!

Harry Flatters – Jemba Google Earth Stage Traces

The Harry Flatters Rally remains a firm favourite with the Tarmac exponents who just love the fast stages over the Epyntt ranges. The Jemba inertia Pacenote system that we use captures the speed of the Harry Flatters via it’s Google Earth stage trace. The speed is related via colour coding, with purple depicting the fastest sections and yellow the slowest. On the eve of the rally we would wish everyone a safe and enjoyable rally and here is a the download link for the Google Earth files.

 Flatters 13 GE Files

Remember though, Please note that the Google Earth files are contained in a zip file. If you are using a computer, they will be downloaded to your downloads folder and can then be opened with google Earth. For mobile/iPhone/iPad users – you will be asked to “open in” an app like iFiles or Evernote etc. You must do this and then unzip the files. After this the files can be opened in Google Earth. It seems a long way around but it is worth it. It is assumed that you have installed both a file viewer & Google Earth beforehand. If not they are all available via the App Store and the Android Play Store

Imokilly Single Stage – Google Earth Trace

Neath Valley Stages – Sample Video

The Neath Valley Stages has made the step up to the newly formed RAC Historic Championship, and to meet the challenge, the rally has also stepped up with a move into the bigger forests in the Neath Valley area. With stages in both of the classic Rheola and Margam Forest’s, this could be the only opportunity that competitors get to compete in these former Rally GB stages this year. It is well known that Wales Rally GB will move to more northern stages for 2013 at least, and almost certainly for the next couple of year’s as wind farm development is restricting the use of some of the more classic south Wales forests. Neath Valley Clerk of the Course, Den Golding has asked us to post a little sample video of this year’s stages, just to highlight how good the stages are. We cant disagree, it should prove to be a fantastic event for all concerned.
