Racecourse course revs up for motor show on Sunday  

Car lovers are in for a treat on Sunday, September 19 when two of Killarney’s best-loved motoring events come together for a car show at the racecourse. 

Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club has joined forces with Cars N’Coffee Killarney to stage an event that is open to: “Vintage, classic, retro and  modern cars,” according to event organisers. 

Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club usually holds its annual show at Killarney Racecourse but the event has not run since June 2019 as a result of the pandemic.

Cars N’Coffee Killarney held one low-key event last summer after hosting successful monthly meetings in 2019.  

Now, the two shows are coming together to create one big motoring event that will cater for all aspects of car culture in the Killarney area. 

Over 200 cars, from the 1930s to modern times will be on display at the Ross Road venue. 

Tom Leslie, of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club is a member of the organising committee.

Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser at a special launch event on Wednesday night this week he said he was looking forward to re-starting the car scene in Killarney. 

“It is great to be back in action and we are delighted to be linking with Cars’NCoffee to create one big motor show in the heart of the town,” he said. “We will have everything from the 1930s to the 2000s, featuring vintage, classic, retro and modern cars.”
