Supercar drivers just love the Kerry roads
The organiser of last weekend’s Bumble 1000 road run that finished in Killarney was full of praise for the challenging roads of Kerry.
Speaking to Kerry Motorsport News, at the finish line in Killarney Racecourse PJ Harte said: “I will never forget the Healy Pass.”
Over 40 supercars took part in last the run last weekend.
After setting off from Dublin on Friday morning the crews overnighted in Wexford and Cork before completing the run in Killarney.
The cars left Kinsale, County Cork on Sunday morning and travelled to the finish line at Killarney Racecourse via the Healy Pass and Moll’s Gap.
Hundreds of spectators waited at the Ross Road venue to see the cars cross the finish line, where organisers PJ and Corina Harte told the Killarney Advertiser they had raised: “€25,000 up to this point and there is more to come in.”
The 40 supercars included three rare Lamborghinis said to valued at over €350,000 each.
Supercar fans will get another chance to see these rare cars on Saturday next when the Cannonball Run Ireland has a lunch halt at the Ballygarry Estate just outside Tralee.
