26th June, 2016

On behalf of the Carrick on Suir Motor Club, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Waterford, for the 45th staging of the Ravens Rock Rally. The Ravens Rock Rally is promoted and organised by the Carrick on Suir Motor Club Ltd.

The event will commence with a ceremonial start in the heart of Waterford City, on Saturday evening the 26th June at 19.30 hrs. Introducing the ceremonial start to the Rally is an attempt to raise the profile of rallying to the people of Waterford City and County. It has grown in popularity, and now forms an integral part of showcasing the cars and the drivers of the rally to the general public. The ceremonial start also gives the club the opportunity to highlight our event sponsors, without whom it would not be possible to hold the rally.

We look forward to meeting you all in Waterford!
