NI Supercar Sunday

Hi All

Hope you are all well and enjoying your cars in our fine summer weather...   Perhaps we might have had the best of the weather on our previous run in April!

I'm sure some of you have attended the NI Supercar Sunday events in previous years (https://www.nisupercarsunday.com/) in aid of the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland and the Eoin Henry Foundation.  I reached out to Aaron Cunningham, the organiser of this event, this week and co-incidentally he was also just about to put out a call to local car clubs.  Aaron is keen that car clubs display at the events over the weekend - and yes, it's not actually just a Sunday event but there are a couple of Saturday events too.

The full itinerary is at https://www.nisupercarsunday.com/itinerary, but in summary the schedule is:

  1. Sat 30th July, 9am - 1pm : assemble and display at NW200 Pits Portstewart
  2. Sat 30th July, 1pm - 5pm : drive Causeway Coastal Route to Larne, then A8 to Belfast and A24 to Newcastle, arriving at The Slieve Donard Hotel at 5pm
  3. Sat 30th July, 6.30pm : Gala Dinner & Auction at The Slieve Donard Hotel
  4. Sun 31st July, 8.30am - 10am (latest) : Displaying vehicles assemble at Bishopscourt Racing Circuit, Downpatrick
  5. Sun 31st July, 10.30am - 4pm : Bishopscourt event open to public, including static displays (car clubs and private individuals), live circuit displays and passenger laps available to purchase
  6. Sun 31st July, 4pm : Event closes

I wasn't aware of this event in previous years so have never been, but I'm keen to attend this year - perhaps both the Saturday and Sunday car events.  I might even be able to persuade my wife to go to the ball if there was enough interest for a table.

Keen to know everyone's thoughts and availability.  Could I please ask you all to respond on this thread - and please pass the message on to any other Lotus owners you know who would be interested in joining us.

Thanks

Ryan

Hi Ryan @RP420,

Thanks for the detailed information. Regrettably I’m not going to be able to attend due to a pre-arranged family holiday overseas. It’s a real shame the dates clash because the event schedule looks great. Hopefully will make it next year!

I look forward to seeing the pics after the event. 😎

Hi Jimmy @blindside

Sorry to hear you are unavailable and I hope you have a great holiday.

Will definitely put up pics following the event.

I think I recall you are going to the Lotus in the Peak event soon.  Hope you might put up pics of that trip in a thread too?!

Hope we can catch up before the end of the summer.

Hi Susheel.  Sorry you can't make it - hopefully another time!

Hi Mike - great that you would be keen to attend Sunday!  That's 2 so far!

Aaron, the organiser, said there were a few Lotus already registered - if no-one else here, then hopefully we can expand the group more.

Missed you Ryan at the summer's biggest car event ....in Legacurry?

I'd like to try and get to Bishpscourt on the Sunday. More than that might be a struggle this year.

Hi Gareth

Didn't know anything about the Legacurry event - all these events happening but I'm oblivious! 🙄  I have started following Andy @Cooper's rmsmotoring.com forum but haven't been able to make it to anything yet.

Great that you could make it to the Sunday event too - that's 3!

I'm actually hoping to interview Ronan, the organiser of the supercar sunday event on our podcast.  Oh, RMS having a cars and coffee this sunday in Mallusk if anyone interested

Great news Andy! Your GR Yaris will fit in well with the other Toyota engined cars 😉

Sorry I can't make the RMS Cars and Coffee this weekend as I'm away on hols, but have the 7th August in my diary!

Hi All

For those who plan to attend Supercar Sunday, if you haven't already done so please go ahead and buy your tickets via the following link https://www.nisupercarsunday.com/events-1

Once you have purchased your ticket, please register your car at this link https://www.nisupercarsunday.com/contact-1

Registered Lotus will have a reserved parking spot in the display area and I believe you may have the opportunity to take your car on track too. 

I have asked Bibs about getting hold of some TLF/Lotus flags or banners to highlight our group display area and he has confirmed this should be possible. 

Fingers crossed for good weather and look forward to seeing you there!

Hi All

Hope you are all still able to make it to Bishopscourt on Sunday?!

I have to let Aaron Cunningham, the organiser, know numbers.  Could I please ask you all to drop a note on this thread confirming if you are still planning to attend?

Many thanks in advance.

Yes. Just checked weather. Not diabolical. So booked ticket for myself and kid. Do you want to meet and go down the road together, Ryan?

With a 7 week old nothing is certain so if you see me, you see me - don't keep me a space.  And if I don't make it look have a great day regardless, its some event.

Gareth - Sounds like a good plan - how about meeting at The Temple garage at 8.15 and heading down from there?  Displaying cars are to arrive between 8.30 and 10.00, so if we meet at 8.15 we should be in Bishopscourt for about 9am.

Andy - congratulations on the new arrival!  Hope all going well?  Hope we do see you, but totally understand if not.

Hi Ryan,

Don't worry about me, I might get a run over but I've just bought a new jet ski today and I'm currently on the ferry with it on the trailer so I'm really keen to use it as much as time and work will allow before I'm away on holiday next weekend. 

Thanks 

Michael

Great news Keith - thanks for letting me know.

@1973 JPS Richard - apologies - just realised I didn't respond to you previously.  Thanks for the update and hope you might be able to make it.

Bibs has very kindly paid for a couple of logo banners (TLF logo and Lotus logo) which we can use to mark out our Lotus section in the display area.

Gareth and I are meeting/departing from The Temple garage at 8.15 on Sunday morning to head down.  Keith - you are welcome to join us there too if that suits, or alternatively we can meet you at Bishopscourt.  Same of course applies to Michael, Richard and Andy if any of you are able to make it along.

Fingers crossed for decent weather - current forecast is at least dry!

Looking forward to a good day.

Ryan

Sorry guys, not a chance I'll make the Temple for 8.15.  I'll struggle to get a teenager out of bed and leave Ballymena for that time. Hope the roads are clear on Sunday morning.
