Enniskillen Motor Club are once again running their Clubmans Stages Rally on Saturday the 4th of October. The rally has switched formats over the year’s but recently it has run exclusively as a gravel event. This year the route has been expanded to a loop of three stages done twice and we can report that the stages are in great shape. With gravel rallies becoming less frequent, it is fantastic that Enniskillen MC have the enthusiasm to run another event just four weeks after their main NI championship event. The rally is restricted to two wheel drive and is based out of the Old Pals Bar in Derrygonnelly, Co Fermanagh. Below is a short sample video of some of the stages.
The Patterson Pacenotes and DVD will be ready for despatch from Monday 28th September and can be ordered online at this link or by telephone during normal business hours: 028 90 844111.
Today sees two of the season’s most popular events taking place. The Trackrod rally in Yorkshire, a BTRDA and RAC championship rally and also the Bushwhacker Rally in Co Tyrone, a round of both the NI Rally Championship and the Irish Forestry Championship. Here are our own Google Earth speed traces of this year’s rally. Good luck to everyone involved and have a safe rally. Enjoy.

Remember though. 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.
