Motorsport makes a return and no better place to start than Laois!

Laois Rallysport Club are in the middle of a very busy season. Having missed out on the Heartlands Rally for the last two years due to Covid-19, the Motorsport Ireland affiliated club are going full throttle for the first-ever Laois Rallysport Club Summer Rallysprint which takes place on July 24th, in Stradbally Hall.

The club have set up a stunning 4-km gravel stage which will be run six times and will be the first of its kind for the club run on the grounds of Stradbally Hall. The event will be one of several motorsport events which are being run as part of the Return to Sport protocols in conjunction with Sport Ireland.

When the club approached Tom Cosby of Stradbally Hall a few months back we never thought it would actually happen and we are delighted with the way it has turned out and we have to thank Tom for that.

Some big motorsport names are also confirmed to attend the event which is sure to be a very successful event and we hope it will be the first of many. 

We are also delighted to confirm Brendan Dowling Transport as our main sponsor for this event. Brendan has been involved in the club for a long time and we as club thank him for his continued support of our sport. A special word of thanks to Acesigns who have also come on board with us again this year.

Motorsport is a community; it has a large following throughout the country, and we would love nothing more than to have spectators at this event. Unfortunately, due to the uncertain Covid times we are in, no spectators will be admitted to the event on the day, and we ask all motorsport followers and locals to adhere to this. You will be able to view all the action on Facebook via onthepacenote. 

If the public of Stradbally and the surrounding areas have any questions regarding the event, please do not hesitate to contact the club anytime. You can email the Event Secretary, Paul Downey on
