Press Release:

5th July 2013

Ballynahinch and District Motor Club are delighted to announce the arrival of Vanilla Black Catering as the new title sponsor for our Summer Stages Rally due to take place at Bishopscourt Racing Circuit on Saturday July 13th!

Vanilla Black Catering specialise in mobile coffee shops, and have travelled the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland over recent years working on a huge variety of shows, festivals and sporting fixtures. Whether it's a hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream on a cold night at the rugby, or a bottle of water and a sandwich on a hot summers evening at a music festival; Vanilla Black have it covered!

Many of you told us this uncomplicated, fun rally just shouldn't be tampered with, so after much discussion BADMC will be delighted to run the original format for this much loved event!

Saturday July 13th will see all competing crews including the Junior 1000 Rally Challenge, tackle all 8 stages (4 run twice) within the ever improving Bishopscourt Circuit!

We know times are hard and budgets are tight, so this year for the first time, we are delighted to offer overnight caravan and camper-van facilities (including showers) for competitors within the circuit on the evening prior to the event, although we stress that anyone wishing to take advantage of this onsite accommodation will need to contact the club in advance so arrangements can be made!

As ever we hope to offer a great days rallying, and with the entry fee set at £165 (no late entry fee), scrutiny on the morning of the event, and overnight caravanning sorted, we hope you agree; it's gonna be a great days craic!!
