At the end of the summer, or at least what summer we had, we reported on rally extravaganza event that was happening in Belfast, named ‘TITANIC DÉJÀ VU ULSTER’.
Déjà Vu Motorsport run events that allow the worlds rallying greats and passionate petrolheads alike, to take on former rally stages from Killarney to Kerry and even as far as Sicily in Italy.
The innovation of Dr. Beatty Crawford, a well decorated former rally navigator, with the help of one of Ireland’s most known and respected faces from the motorsport scene, Plum Tyndall of RPM Motorsport, Titanic Déjà vu Ulster wasn’t just about driving some iconic roads.
The main aim of the event, was to raise much needed funding for Cancer charities, and raise money they did with the help of two-time World Rally Championship winner and one-time Le Mans 24hr winner, Walter Rohrl, who led an armada of Porsches on the event, driving the Carrera 911SC lent by John Mulholland.
Receiving a bumper entry, as well as attracting hundreds of fans along the way, it comes as no surprise that the proceeds to charity are nothing short of substantial, a grand total of £10,000.00 being raised.
This money is split between two charities, with MACMILLAN Cancer Support receiving £6,000.00 and Cancer Fund for Children receiving £4,000.00 – money that is greatly appreciated by both charities and that will help a great deal, where it is needed most.

Déjà Vu Motorsport commented “We would like to thank all who contributed in one way or another, especially John Mulholland – without the support of volunteers, sponsors and entrants, we would not have been able to make these donations”.
The next event on the cards will be Donegal Déjà vu with dates yet to be made final – it is one not to be missed with arguably some of Ireland’s best rally stages.
Keep the revs up!
