Triton Showers announce sponsorship of National Rally Championship

Triton Showers are delighted to announce their title sponsorship of the Irish National Rally Championship. The first of a three year deal comes into effect in 2015, which will also herald the introduction of a new biennial rota for the series.

Just weeks after the culmination of this year’s championship that concluded a glorious chapter under the Dunlop banner, the organisers have attained the support of the blue chip Maynooth based company to continue what should be a seamless transition to sustain the series at the cutting edge of Irish motorsport.

Triton Showers are already very well known in motorsport circles.  In the past they have underpinned events such as the Circuit of Ireland, the Lurgan Park Rally and the regional South-East Rally series.  In addition, Triton Showers MD Kevin Barrett is an avid supporter of the National Rally Championship and has won the popular Galway Summer Rally and is also a former winner of the Mayo Rally.


Triton Showers also supports Monaghan’s Niall Maguire, who remains the only driver to win the national rally championship on three occasions.  Television coverage on TG4 and satellite channel Motors TV of this year’s Dunlop National Rally Championship was backed by Triton Showers.

Commenting about the new sponsorship arrangement Richard Talbot, Chairperson of the National Rally Championship Sub-Committee said, “We are extremely pleased to have secured Triton Showers as the new title sponsor for the National Rally Championship.  It continues the high profile support of the championship with a brand that is already well known within motorsport.  I have no doubt that the synergy between Triton Showers and the National Rally Championship will stimulate even greater interest in the sport.  To have concluded the deal so soon after the conclusion of this year’s championship that brought the curtain down on a truly magnificent association with Dunlop, illustrates the value of the National Championship as a marketable product.”


The Triton Showers National Rally Championship will be one of the few indeed, if not the only series to be able to rotate to eight different locations on a biennial basis due to the addition of Dublin based ALMC Rally and the Midland Rally in Roscommon that will join the series early next season.

Triton Showers Managing Director, Kevin Barrett has a wealth of experience, both as a competitor and a former member of the National Rally Championship Sub-Committee and the Irish Rally Competitors Association (IRCA).  Those qualities will undoubtedly help to bring the series to new horizons.

He said, “Having been involved in rallying both as a competitor and an event sponsor, Triton Showers is aware of the huge popularity of the sport.  The fact that the national series can offer such a splendid variety of locations allows us the opportunity to reach greater prominence throughout the four provinces of Ireland.  The growth of the National Rally Championship was another key factor, its spectator audience spans all age groups and we are keen to build on its many qualities.”

Meanwhile, Alex Sinclair, Chief Executive of Motorsport Ireland remarked, “This is the best news possible for the Vard National Rally Championship and rally sport generally going into a new year.  I cannot say enough in terms of complimenting the team that have put this sponsorship together. Triton Showers make the very best showers - and I speak from personal experience!”

The eight rounds of the 2015 Triton Showers National Rally Championship are: 1. Birr Rally (February); 2. Midland Rally (March); 3. Monaghan Rally (April); 4. Circuit of Munster (June); 5. Raven’s Rock Rally (June); 6. Sligo Rally (July); 7. Galway Summer Rally (August); 8. Skibbereen Fastnet Rally (October).

The series will be based on the best six scores from eight events.  Meanwhile, the official launch of the Triton Showers National Rally Championship will take place in early January, date and venue to be advised.
