Despite the current high levels of Covid-19 in the country, hopes are high that the vaccine rollout will combine with the next period of restrictions to bring about a new and brighter chapter in our fight against the coronavirus. The list of event dates continues to grow in our monthly Diary Dates section in the magazine (buy the current issue HERE), and here are a few updates received before the current issue went to print.
Following the postponement of last year’s Déjà Vu Ireland West classic rallying event, organisers Alan ‘Plum’ Tyndall and Dr Beatty Crawford are looking forward to the rescheduled dates of the 21st and 22nd of May, which already has attracted an entry of seventy including the renowned Jimmy McRae and Austin and Gareth McHale. With funds going in support of Roscommon and Mayo Hospice, the event will be based at Hotel Westport, and further information can be found at www.dejavumotorsport.com or via updates published in Irish Vintage Scene Magazine in the coming months.
One of the most anticipated events in the country, the date for the Kilkenny Motor Club’s annual classic show at St. James’ Park in the Crystal City has been announced as the 29th of August. Thanks to a central location, excellent venue and the tireless work of the organising club, this event attracts huge turnouts each year, so let’s hope that the 2021 running can go ahead to the level it’s become accustomed to. Further information can be found at www.kilkennymotorclub.com or from the regular updates in Irish Vintage Scene Magazine.
Finally, due to the early date of both of their annual events, the Co. Cork-based Rathcormac Vintage Club have announced that they will not be holding any public events in 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. These consist of the Bertie Hanrahan Memorial Bring & Buy Sale and the Club’s annual vintage road run, which are normally held in February and March respectively. We at Irish Vintage Scene wish their members well for 2021, and look forward to hearing about their events going ahead in 2022.
