OnthepacenoteUk was formed out of the growing need for expansion of onthepacenote.com outside of the Irish notes market.
Onthepacenote.com was established by Killian Duffy in Ireland in 2010, &, after only 8 years in business has successfully dominated the Irish pacenote business, winning almost every major rally & Championship in the process.
Expansion required Killian to find a partner in the UK, someone with experience & hunger, & no one was better placed than Craig Parry, a long term friend of Killian.
Craig was unfortunately forced into retirement in August 2018 due to a test accident before Rally Germany.
Craig will write the notes along with Killian for all rallies, Craig will also take notes orders, & deal with all customer queries for all Uk events. Craig will also carry out a second route survey the day before every Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship rally, this will help give a complete upto date picture of stage conditions, & any amendments will be given at a briefing the night before each rally by Craig. These briefing will be exclusive to onthepacenoteUk customers.
Craig will also be given some tuition, & workshops before some of the Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship rounds. These will be invaluable for any crews that attend.
We are also announcing a fantastic Junior prize over the coming weeks.
You can order notes by visting www.onthepacenote.co.uk or by calling Craig on 07977234790
Why choose onthepacenote?
Onthepacenote has built its reputation on consistent notes & quality of service. There was a clear gap for consistent notes in the market in Ireland in 2010, & now from 2019, our consistent notes will be available to purchase in the UK.
It is a clear advantage to have 2 WRC level co-drivers, with over 100 wrc starts between them writing & checking notes for every rally you are contesting!
