North Armagh Motor Club’s Lurgan Park rally will run on Saturday, July 2.

Backing has been provided by Orchard Motorsport and Brian Stinson for the eight-stage event.

The invitation entry list will provide thrilling racing from 50 crews.

Additional support has been secured by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council for the packed programme that also includes children’s entertainment, classic car displays and extra attractions.

Garry Jennings has confirmed his support as defending champion.

“The Lurgan Park rally is always a special day in the motorsport year,” said Jennings. “I wouldn’t miss it, it’s been great to win it a couple of times but, more importantly, it’s a brilliant day out for the family, with the centralised servicing paddock, meeting friends old and new and a brilliant social atmosphere.”

Barry Taggart will operate as clerk of the course, with William Fullerton the rally director.
