The rally is certainly living up its international tag with crews from several different countries confirmed for the May 4/5 event within days of entries opening.

So far organisers have received three entries from Swedish crews, Tony Jansson / Erik Davidson, Christoffer Soderberg / Daniel Westlund in a pair of historic Ford Escorts and Nils Bergguist / Karl-Erik Magnusson in a Volvo Amazon.

Boston-based Galway man Frank Cunningham has also entered the historic section of the rally in his Ford Escort and he will be joined by fellow trans-Atlantic competitors Liam Egan and Michael Canny, who are both making the journey from New York to compete in a Toyota Corolla World Rally Car and a Ford Fiesta ST in the modern section of the 15-stage event.
