The Rally of the Lakes
Killarney, Ireland
3-5 May 2002

For the first time in 16 years Rally fans will be able to experience the awesome sight and sound of Group B Rally cars on proper Rally stages. The Killarney Rally in May will host 10 ex-works Rally Cars, running over all the stages, including the infamous Molls Gap stage, a classic from the old Circuit of Ireland Rally.

It must be stressed that the vehicles will run in a demonstration drive capacity, the group are not competing in the event, running for the spectators before the competitors cover the stages.

Fans of the Group B era who attend the event will witness Audi Quattro's, Ford RS200's, Peugeot 205 T16's, an MG Metro 6R4, a Lancia 037 Rallye, a Lotus Sunbeam and a rare Group B Mazda RX7 (all confirmed), covering hundreds of stage miles.

It is hoped that this unique Group B demonstration run will re-unite a number of ex-works drivers with their `80's challengers.

Slowly Sideways is the club name for Reinhard Klein's Rally events.
