We had never intended to return to Killarney so soon, but when the 2017 Circuit of Ireland Rally was cancelled it left an gaping hole in the calendar that Easter which Déjà Vu Killarney filled admirably. Our aim was to recreate the great Rothmans Rally Team of the 1980s by inviting back many drivers, co-drivers, managers and staff from that golden Group B age in Irish Rallying.
