Meet aftermath thread The Corkscrew

Well, what can I say?

What a truly epic day and spectacular road I don't think people have smiled so much in a long time. I really enjoyed today even though I'm only getting 22mpg lol 85 euro in fuel today lol The corkscrew is a class road. Perfectly smooth and level and cambered correctly. Gerry as always your a lunatic but that Sprint is quality And all the 159's I don't think there was that many in Ireland in the same spot And thanks again to everyone who took the effort to come along especially with the price of juice but I am thinking that will be going along again

I also fell in love with my 156 was class Handling is quality etc.

Now lads get the pics up?

Damien.

Pic's from Todays meet

The pictures are in the gallery, should have been up looog ago, but I got side tracked with my grandson Dylan, any how, I took the privilege of removing digits from the number plates, if ye want the pic number plates an all I'll put it up. I only got offered a few quid on EBay for them anyways...Shocking I know!!

My apologies if I did not say hello to everyone, but it was a privilege to meet you all, and your wonderful Bella's, they looked so cool on the Hill...

And the look on the BMW driver who passed on the way down was priceless, and yes he did have the rear fogs on!!!

I hope ye all got home safe and sound, and had no trouble with the Anglo Debt collectors...

Feel free to post the pictures where ever, but ya might give a link back to

Caora Dubha Motorsport Photography Black Sheep for non Irish speaking folks...

Legend for all of the advice today and taking the pics man. Quality Lovely 159 you got there. Hope you enjoyed the sound of the TS engines and the flat four going up the mountain.

Savage sound on Corkscrew for sure, if I wasn't doing 25K miles a year, I'd have a petrol..still we do have the best looking cars though...

We had a convoy on the way back for a bit, it was hard to stop looking in the mirrors...

I highly recommend coming back to Ballyallaban for the Hillclimb to see how to drive the hills properly

Their speed will shock you...

Cheers lads, ye guys are a great bunch....

So Ballyallaban claims another victim...The car takes a pounding after the carpark alright...

This is what happens when you cut the entrance to the carpark
