One of the biggest motoring extravaganzas ever seen in County Kerry is ready to take over Tralee and Dingle on May 27 and 28.  

Déjà vu Tralee will trace the history of motorsport in County Kerry as part of Kerry Motor Club’s 50th anniversary. It will also raise funds for Recovery Haven in Tralee.   

Helping them do it are some of the biggest names in Irish and International motorsport. World Rally Championship stars Craig Breen and Kris Meeke will be joined by five-time Belgian champion Patrick Snijers and multiple Irish champion Austin MacHale. The top 30 cars are seeded and both the driver and their car will have a story to tell.  See them on the Mall Tralee from 930 am on May 28.

Déjà vu founder and internationally renowned co-driver Dr Beatty Crawford said:  

“When Kerry Motor Club invited us to become part of their 50th-anniversary celebrations we were only too happy to oblige.  

“They had all the ingredients to help us put on an outstanding Déjà vu Motorsport event. They have history in tests such as Minard Castle, Slea Head and Conor Pass, special stages that have been used on The Circuit of Ireland and Circuit of Kerry.   

“Add in the excellent charity Recovery Haven Kerry, the support of Rentokil Initial, Kerry County Council and the Tralee Chamber of Commerce, MIS Motorsport Insurance and an excellent venue in The Rose Hotel for our headquarters.   

“The icing on the cake –  the unbounding enthusiasm of the Kerry Motor Club. On previous Déjà vu Motorsport events we have brought you the wonders of Killarney, the Antrim North Coast and Donegal. Now, as Covid at last allows us, we can open the door to the Dingle Peninsula, another scenic gem on The Wild Atlantic Way. 

Over 150 cars are expected – some of them the finest motorsport cars on this planet, more rare classics out for a once-off drive. They include 30 Fords including an RS 200; 16 Porsches; 14 Minis; 11 Subarus; 7 Opels; 6 Toyotas; 5 Lancias, Renaults and Sunbeams; 4 Vauxhalls, BMWs and Audis; 3 Hillmans, Triumphs and VWs; 2 MGs, Jaguars, Fiats, Peugeots and Ferraris – yes a 308 and a fabulous F40; 1 Mitsubishi, Honda, Nissan, Saab and an Aston Martin!
