Carrick on Suir Motor Club

Update #1

The Ravens Rock Rally 2017 started this morning in the sunny south east. Competitors lined up in Parc Ferme on the Quay in Waterford across from Rally HQ in Dooleys Hotel. 85 cars in total began the morning in high spirits. Sam Moffat was first out over the ramp in his bid to claim the Triton Showers National Rally Championship. Also starting this morning was WRC star and Carrick on Suir club member Craig Breen with his co-driver Patrick (Whack) Croke hoping to have a go at the days stages laid out over County Waterford. A new face to tarmac rallying was Lauren Kelly, daughter of Frank Kelly. Lauren has previously navigated in the forest, but this will be her first time on the tarmac. Best of luck to all of our competitors. We wish you a safe and enjoyable day of motorsport.

Updated Entry List

Three new additions in the form of Car No. 81 being driven by Darren Hammill, no 82 John Hayes and 83 Dermot Cronin.

Meet the People #3

  Mickey-Joe Morrissey

Although Mickey Joe is well known as an International co-driver, he has occasionally competed as a driver.  He will again this year, drive a 00 car in the Ravens Rock Rally. He is a former COC for the Ravens Rock, and a 3 times winner also. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, he is a truly remarkable asset to the motorsport community.

Mickey Joe  is the type of unassuming man that you immediately want to know more about. He first joined Carrick on Suir Motor Club in 1971 to compete in the Ravens Rock Rally when it was run over six stages in a forest at night. He began co-driving on and off from 1972, and currently navigates for Eamonn Boland on the world stage. To his credit, he has competed not only in Europe but in Mexico, Canada and as far flung as the Middle-East, actually clocking up almost 80 rallies there, with great success. There are only four rallies in the WRC calendar that Mickey-Joe hasn't done, and those are: Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and Poland. Mickey Joe's first WRC event was 1000 Lakes. He also has 9 finishes in the Monte Carlo Rally. We think it's fair to say that in terms of WRC starts, he rivals another club member, Craig Breen.

A little known fact about Mickey-Joe, is that he was the man responsible for introducing the number system for pace notes in Ireland in the 1980's.
