(9.00am – 5.00pm, Monday – Saturday)
Circuit of Ireland Rally is the second oldest rally in the world. Steeped in history, many epic battles can be recounted after almost 80 years of rallying on the Emerald Isle. It is the largest cross–border event on the 2012 Irish rally calendar, and this year’s Easter extravaganza, which is round two of the Citroen Irish Tarmac Championship and will take place over 6th/7th April.
Modern day rallying requires shorter, more compact events, and the ‘Circuit’ has moved with the times. The event now runs with a compact two–day format, but has retained its prestigious name and remains as a tough challenge for competitors. The 2012 event now includes a special ‘Time Trail Stage’ in Lisburn City Centre on 7th April, and hopes to attract huge crowds from Lisburn and surrounding areas. On the day, there will be plenty for the family to enjoy.
