Jersey Rally 2017 is delighted to announce Roberts Garages Ltd as the new main sponsor for the event.
The three year deal secures the financial viability of the Jersey Rally and to have such a high profile local company prepared to support the event is news that all the rallying fraternity will delight in.
Michael Cotillard, the chairman of the rally committee for 2017, says “Having the financial support offered by the sponsorship of Roberts Garages Ltd enables the committee to press forward with the digitalisation of the event. The organising committee will be introducing a more centralised digital mapping system from Digimap and also introducing a cloud based app which will be used when asking residents along the route for their feedback.”
In addition, Jersey will be hosting the last round of the R.A.C Historic Asphalt Championships at the event on 13th & 14th October 2017.
The Jersey Rally in 2017 will be celebrating its 35th Anniversary and the intention is to host a top class challenging event as we have done in previous years. It is expected that a maximum entry will be received this year and all crews will be encourages to monitor the website for further information in due course.
Once again the format will be scrutineering on the evening of Thursday the 12th October, with racing from lunchtime on Friday the 13th through into the night stages. The Saturday will feature morning and afternoon stages before returning to Rally HQ for the announcement of the results.
Visiting crews are asked to make contact with the event secretary, Angie Renouf, if they require information regarding transport and hotel accommodation.
A presentation dinner will be held at the Merton Hotel on the evening of Saturday the 14th October.
