The big Truck Show attraction was once again the British Racing Trucks which competed in a number of demonstration races on both days of the Show. These 1,100hp monsters put on quite a show on the technical Mondello Park circuit over the two days.

The Racing Trucks were joined by Round 5 of the Irish Time-Attack Championship where some of Ireland’s top cars and drivers   battled it out for the fastest lap of the day.

Dave and Brian Egan, two of the country’s top Drift competitors and front runners in the IDC (Irish Drift Championship) put on a show of high speed precision driving like no other.



Further on-track entertainment was provided by the Stop & Go Competitors, where exhibitors in their tractor-units can drag race each other down the straight, where they then have to stop suddenly within a stop box.

‘Ireland’s Fastest Courier’ competition, which saw courier companies go head-to-head on the Mondello Park track where they had to collect, load, unload and deliver their parcels faster than the opposition was also a big attraction
