About Kelly Motorsport
We at Kelly Motorsport are a family run team that compete in both gravel & tarmac events throughout Ireland and abroad . With ongoing support from sponsors etc. we now have 2 identical MK2 Escorts both of which are GRP4 spec and aptly named “BABY BLUE”
In 2017 the team were lucky enough to travel as far afield as New Zealand and Australia in order to compete on both surfaces and experience how other events compare to those of Irish rallying.
As a 'clubman' outfit, Kelly Motorsport run on a fairly tight budget, but have managed to secure regular sponsorship which has proved invaluable to the progression of the team enabling upgrades to be done to both cars to keep them current with the competition.
Frank (driver) takes care of the pre-event preparation work and any rebuilds or developments required. Gary, (Frank's brother) is the on-event service man and chief mechanic. He keeps the car in good shape throughout the rally and has pulled the team out of the fire on numerous occasions.
Merchanidse is looked after by Rosemarie (Frank's wife) and is available to purchase from most events as well as from the online shop.
Lauren (Frank's daughter) takes care of the media side of things. She operates L K Media, and is responsible for capturing the days footage and posting it onto YouTube as well as looking after the teams Twitter page.
