“Following what was an incredibly well organised and exciting event last year, we know the Jersey Rally Team will go beyond once again this year in delivering another spectacular event.”
Given this year is Roberts Garages’ 60th year celebrations of driving Jersey forward, it feels rather special to once more be sponsoring the Jersey Rally. It is such a prestigious and celebrated event, now itself in its 36th year.
We were honoured when the Rally organisers originally decided upon Roberts as their new sponsor last year and the event did not fail to deliver, a real treat for the company to be involved in. We are extremely proud to continue to be associated with the Jersey Rally this year and next year to invest in the future growth and development of this celebrated local event. The passion and commitment of Mick Cotillard, Wendy Geary and the team is truly infectious. Roberts were extremely pleased with the results last year and look forward to another fantastic Rally in 2018.
It is encouraging to hear the Rally continues to attract competitors and spectators from the Island and overseas. As we settle into the role of being the lead sponsor, we are working hard with Mick and his team this year to increase the number of spectators across the weekend as we try to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy this unique local event.
I know the organisers try hard each year to increase the number of spectators viewing areas and if you want to find these spots, just click onto www.jerseyrally.com. If you haven’t experienced the thrill of watching the Jersey Rally, I would thoroughly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed, I can assure you! I’d encourage everyone to watch the film of Rally 2017 on You Tube to get your engines fired up!
We are delighted to also be promoting our sister company PDJ this year so do look out for our new team member, Phil the Tank during the Rally. We also look forward to meeting drivers and crews on Thursday 11 October at the pre-Scrutineering Roberts ‘Pitstop’ Reception.
Finally, I wish all competitors a safe, enjoyable and successful rally and all the spectators a thrilling and exciting time watching what has now become a major highlight in the sporting calendar of the Island.
