The club then gets support from those clubs to assist with the running of our own Rally.

 Winners!! There are many young drivers in the Club who compete in events but due to financial and other constraints are unable to contest the National Championship or any other regional championship. This restricts them from attempting to qualify for the Billy Coleman award-which is the award which recognises the best young driver (under 27) each year in Ireland.

To encourage young drivers to start off at this level, Mayo & District Motorsport Club have a “Young Driver Support Scheme”.
