For any of the Cork crew who are interested the cars are supposed to be parked up near the Clarion Hotel / on the Docks at the Port of Cork.

Cars to arrive into the city centre at 7pm on Friday night & depart at 10am on Saturday morning.

Do you have a link to their route Rik? I'd like to do some spotting along the way. Cork on Friday might be the best option

Nice one thanks! Now to figure out if I'll go watch them in Cork or Bunratty. I'm siding towards Bunratty for ease of access and smaller crowds.

I'm thinking Cork city early Saturday morning before it gets busy, I saw them last year early morning in Killarney before many people turned up,
good to get a close look at the cars before it got too busy


Also there have been some changes to the schedule

Bunratty isn't too far from my home place, so I might just head back, pick up the brother and gaze at some automotive-p0rn for the afternoon.

Well, Gav, you don't have to worry, it seems you're not the only one into these things. Were you invited?

Wonder would Alfa like to sponsor Me Julie?
