Well what can we say about this weekend its just jam packed with super events and the weather that’s promised is just superb, myself I won’t be going anywhere as my son Jack is competing in Round 3 of the Motorsport Ireland Karting Championship so that’s taking precedent this year.
I would of course have been heading for the big one the Innishannon Steam Rally in Innishannon Co Cork, for sure it’s the first of the very big steam rallies of the year.
Up in Portlaoise the Gordon Bennett Classic Car run takes place this event attracts entries from all over Ireland and lots from UK with 150 cars or more registered it promises to be a great event while you might not now be able enter the run you can for sure go to see it so check out their Facebook page where there are regular updates. Their Facebook is Gordon Bennett Irish Classic Car Run.
Another run on the east coast is the North East Vintage Clubs pre-1939 run that starts in Duleek Co Meath see full details on this one on the diary dates listing at end of this post.
Longford Vintage club always put on a great show and their event is taking place in Connolly’s Barracks in the centre of Longford on Sunday 4th.
One show or in fact county I have never been to a show in is Leitrim and the South Leitrim West Cavan Vintage Tractor Club will hold a vintage show and family fun day in Ballinamore all details on below flyers.
Another show that I hear great reports on s the Yesteryear Motor club show in Dungarvan again its one that clashes with Innishannon I wish the club all the best with their show as they are doing great work for the hobby down the south east.
So no matter where you go this weekend please do send us a few photos on Facebook and we hope you all have a superb weekend.
