For all drivers, mechanical scrutiny will take place in the car park of Liberty Insurance on Saturday afternoon before the event starts on Sunday morning, and the first car will be leaving the Hotel Kilmore at 9:45 am.

The stages this year are based in the north west of the county in the Bawnboy, Corlough area, with service taking place in the Quinn Therm facility on the Ballyconnell-Derrylin road, and Stephen Kellet, the Clerk of the Course, has designed a difficult route consisting of three stages repeated three times.
