Without them we couldn’t provide such an excellent event and this year as before we will be using their Ringsend premises as our Rally HQ.
“I am extremely impressed by their professional facility. With a large hard standing area and use of their offices it makes an ideal location for our centralised services so close to Cam and Springwell.
“The scrutiny, start, service and finish of the event will take place at RiverRidge Recycling and from here drivers will be challenged to overcome the obstacles of three blasts through the two forests, it is sure to appeal to all competitors wanting to get a run out in the forests before the end of the season.”
