Top rally event would rev up exposure across the world
News that the Circuit of Ireland could become part of the rallying world championship next year will send petrolheads' pulses racing. It is a sport which is embedded in the DNA of motor racing fans here and Northern Ireland has produced many world class drivers over the years.
Upgrading the Circuit to world championship status would require serious investment from the Executive but would be yet another top class sporting event giving the province tremendous global exposure and gaining a more immediate return in the attraction of thousands of spectators. Every effort should be made to give it the green light.
