We have just finished putting together the notes for this years Ravens Rock Rally. Once again the Carrick on Suir MC have chosen three very good stages in the south of the county very close to the seaside resort of Tramore.
This year the loop is very compact, the three stages almost circling back on themselves, making it one of the easiest rallies in a while to do a reconnaissance. We reckon, that a loop can be completed in just over one hour with less than ten minutes travel time between the stop of the first stage and the start of the first.
In general the stages are quite fast but still have a lot technicality involved, particularly in the high speed sections and places, chicanes are in place to calm things down. Our computer model is predicting average speeds of 113 km/h, 115 m/h and 106 km/h for the three stages respectively. In general the surface is pretty good, but with so many farms on the stages, it will be very slippy if it gets wet. On the upside though, it the sunny south east, and the weather is generally very nice this time of year.
