Belfast will be the focal point of next year’s Circuit of Ireland Rally, with the ceremonial start and finish of the event taking place in the city.

The Rally HQ and Service Park will be located in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, welcoming over 1000 competitors and team personnel over a four-day period.

The first tarmac rally on the 12-strong European Rally Championship calendar has a ceremonial start on 17 April.

The event will then take place over two days, ending in Belfast on Saturday.

The Easter speed spectacular is set to cover a distance of more than 230 competitive kilometres, taking in stages in Belfast and counties Down and Antrim.

Early next year Circuit organisers will announce further details of the rally route and stages.

The Circuit of Ireland is returning to the local motorsport calendar after a year’s absence and received a major boost when it was announced that it would form part of the European Championship.

It will be the only UK and Ireland based round of the series.

The event was cancelled last year because of extreme weather conditions.
