Joule Donegal International Rally 2017

The JOULE Donegal International Rally (16-18 June 2017) is one the toughest rally challenges there is for drivers and teams. Three days of over 300km of bumpy, twisting, lightning fast, narrow tarmac – from the fabled Knockalla coast road, to the lush green farm lands of Carnhill, to the wide open bog land landscape of Glen, Donegal has it all.

The rally takes place over three days and will be followed by over 70,000 spectators with close to 200,000 viewers on TV and online.

It’s a sporting event that engages locally, nationally and internationally.

Being the only three day tarmac rally in Ireland and the UK, the JOULE Donegal International Rally draws the best drivers and cars from home and abroad every June.

The JOULE Donegal International Rally is made up of 20 special stages and the rules are very simple – the fastest driver and navigator win. The times from all the special stages, which vary in character and length, are combined and the competing pair with the fastest time wins – just like that.

The JOULE Donegal International Rally Ireland is naturally, the headline event. But the international is only a fraction of the Donegal rally. There are three sub-groups under the Donegal umbrella too, the national rally, the historic rally and the junior rally. In these categories you will have the opportunity to view all sorts of rally cars in one of rallying’s most exciting environments. From modified Mark 2 Ford Escort’s, to historic Porsche 911’s, there’s something for everyone in Donegal.
