Many thanks to all at the weekend. The temperature was cold but it did stay dry and made for good driving conditions on the run. There were some fantastic cars on display at the meet and a great turn out. I must say, the arrival of the IEC lads before they went out on their Blacksod run added a great buzz to the meet and was a welcome addition.

Before heading out on the run the drivers choices were announced. Best Kadett went to Peter Banaghan and his stunning Kadett D GTE.

Image

Image

Overall drivers choice went to Eamon Sharkey's equally stunning Ascona 400r.

Image

Image

Worthy winners from a very high standard of cars in attendance.

Image

A special word of thanks to Tony McDermott for his generous winning €100 bid for Opel Blitz sign. It is going to a good cause in the Bone Marrow for Lukemia trust. Also a word of thanks to Pat Mullan for pic below. Keep an eye on IVS Retro Classic magazine for future feature.

[*]Well done James and crew for a great day out in Mayo... Was a last minute call to head over from Monaghan on Sunday morning but delighted to have made it... While it was cold was dry and hardy.. Great to meet up with fellow Opel heads again.. Sorry my names to faces is never great so sorry if give ya a wrong name or none at all :-D ... Some lovely cars on display and very worthy winners... The Run out the coast was brilliant especially for those of us who have never been that far out West... Popping up a few photos taken by my 5 and 9 year old navigators and the biggest compliment that can be given to any event is when children tell you that they enjoyed that and when can they go again... :dance:

Thanks John. Great to hear your GTE is going as well as it looks. It really is a reflection on the standard of cars there on the day that yours did not get selected. It looks like it was driven out of a showroom and is a credit to you.
