going back to Mondello Park on Saturday 5th
Due to the considerable
interest for another event at Mondello Park
after the successful Irish Grand Prix last July
we have decided to hold an additional event
there which we are calling 'The
Halloween Stages' on Saturday 5th November.
If you are interested in
taking part, put the date in your diary and get
back in touch by email, facebook, phone or text
anytime to make your entry.
It's once again on the full
international circuit and all past and new
competitors are always welcome.
ATTENTION ALL COMPETITORS
We have noticed for
events during 2015 that many competitors abuse
our very cooperative entry methods and leave it
to the last minute to enter which makes it
extremely difficult for us to arrange for the
commitment of all the support services required
eg staff, time keepers, ambulance and catering.
We cancelled an event in
January 2016 for this reason!
We naturally need to be sure
that our events are viable to run and that means
having the minimum number of competitors taking
part, so it is in everybody's interest that we
have received All
Entries by the
preceding each event to prevent further
Other organisers issue fines
and even reject late entries which we want to
avoid so it is in all competitors interest to
cooperate with us by making
that simple call or text well
before the event day.

RSA Irish Tarmac Buggy
Dates and Venues
Another exciting 'double'
Summer Championship is live! We have had events
this summer at different venues around Ireland
which started off at our old favourite,
in Co Antrim on Saturday 16th April where many
of the leading finishers at the 2016 Circuit of
Ireland developed their skills in the Junior
We enjoyed the first of two
visits to the superb venue at the Pallas
Motorsport and Activity Centre in Tynagh just
inside the Galway County border on May 22nd for
round one of the
Then a week later we were back home to
Craigavon, Co Armagh on Saturday 28th May for a
non championship event on the fantastic loose
shale stages where the first RSA events were
Then on Sunday the 12th
June we went to the popular Nutts Corner
Circuit for 'The King of
the Corner' event where this year we
crowned our Ten Kings and One Queen.
'Irish Grand Prix 2016' was held on Saturday
23rd July on the full international circuit at Mondello
Park in Co Kildare and was as always there were
lots of big smiles from the 138 competitors who took part.
The next venue on the calendar
was around the challenging rally 'country estate'
stages of The Moneyglass
Estate in Co Antrim on Saturday the 13th
August in almost perfect conditions and the
stage record times were broken in several
Then on the 10th September it
to Aghadowey for
championship round 5 and another superb dry
'clockwise' event in mixed conditions at this classic RSA venue.
Pallas Motorsport Centre is
once again our host for the first of two
'Autumn' events on the 2nd of October and it will also be
the final and round two of the 2016
Then three weeks later we
are back to Aghadowey
for our final round of the 2016 Summer
Championship and prize giving just after in The
Brown Trout Inn. The
Summer Championship of events were all
lined up this year for us all!
We have put in our greatest
efforts to give our competitors the largest
possible range of diverse venues and locations
to enjoy a great summer of motorsport with the RSA and we are glad that we
were still able to offer them all at our very competitive 'clubmen
level' entry fees!
Entries are always equally
welcome for just one event, a few events or for
the full championship and casual and new
competitors are always welcome.
Just keep in touch back
here for the details.
Since the formation of
the RSA we have always tried to keep our class
structure simplified as in the 'early days' we
started with six classes and we found this
suited our 'pool' of original competitors and it
has worked pretty well over the years.
Over the last 16 years car performance has
changed considerably and to maintain a fair
class structure within the RSA in the future we
feel that some relatively minor modifications to
class organisation are now necessary to move
forward with the current times.
Our research has
discovered a basis for a class structure that we
believe to be suitable for us which is commonly
used throughout the UK in MSA regulated events
at similar venues and events that are very
similar to the RSA formula.
For the Summer
Championship 2016 we will be using this
structure on a trial basis. At the end of the
championship we will invite an open forum for
competitors to express their opinions on this
alternative class structure prior to the 2016/17
RSA Winter Championship and we will move forward
into the future from there.
Class 1 - Cars up to and
including 1250 cc (12 - 17 yrs)
Class 2 - Cars up to and including 1250 cc (18
Yrs +) *

1251cc up to and including 1400cc
Class 4 - Cars over

1601cc up to and including 2000cc - 8 valve
Class 6 - Cars over
