RSA and Motorsport Ireland Team Up Promote “Keep the Race in its Place”
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) and Motorsport Ireland, in association with County Monaghan Motor Club who are organisers of the Hillgrove HotelMonaghan Stages Rally which is being staged on Sunday 21st April 2013, have issued a joint safety message to fans attending the sporting event to “Keep the Race in its Place”.
Clerk of the Course Paul Hughes emphasised the importance of safety. “The core feature of our preparations has been and always will be the safety of all concerned. Safety Marshals, Stage Commanders and Officials have been trained accordingly. The Event Safety Plan has been compiled meticulously. What is required is that spectators play their part to ensure the safe running of the event. I want to draw the attention of spectators to the Spectator Safety notice in the rally programme. This is your guide to safer spectating, ignoring it is not an option. Safety is everybody’s business and there is one common ingredient that is essential: common sense. Please follow the instructions of the marshals and officials, who are working for your safety. I also ask spectators to respect private property where you assemble and bring your litter home. I am delighted that we have the Road Safety Authority road show attending this year to help us get the message across to all rally fans to “Keep the race in its place”. Finally, I wish everyone involved an enjoyable and safe day’s rallying in Monaghan”.
Regarded as one of the biggest annual sporting events in the county, this years event is bigger and better than ever with a truly magnificent entry list of WRC specification cars, group N entries along with a host of powerful two wheel drive cars including what is possibly the top 6 best escort drivers in the country at the present time. Many months of preparation have gone into this event, which is estimated to be worth in the region of 5 million euro to the local economy with large crowds expected throughout Monaghan town and the mid-Monaghan region over the course of the weekend.
