Watch the 1996 Killarney Historic Rally from 7pm, Thursday 25th of November

Motorsport Ireland will stream highlights from the 1996 Killarney Historic Rally from 7pm on Thursday, 25th of November.

This week’s Motorsport Ireland – RIAC classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is highlights from the 1996 Killarney Historic Rally which originally aired on Sports Stadium on RTÉ.

With the Rally of the Lakes having moved from its December date to the May bank holiday in 1993, by 1996 there was an appetite in Killarney to run a December event again. With historic rallying proving increasingly popular despite being confined to running in their own section at the tail end of international events, under the guidance of Maurice Nagle an all historic rally was created, divided into 3 classes. Historics for up to 1967, post Historics for up to 1974 and Classics for modified cars registered up to 1980. An entry of 110 turned up for the event which ran some of the very best stages Killarney had to offer, including Molls Gap in both directions and in treacherous conditions it was the pairing of John Keatley and Maurice Beckett who eventually won in their Porsche 911.

This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on November 25th.


Next week’s upload will feature highlights from the 1991 Killarney Rally of the Lakes, the final round of that year’s Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
