Hillbilly run April 13th 2014

Post by mmurfee » Thu Apr 03, 2014 12:17 pm

This years Hillbilly run takes place on SUN APRIL 13th, we will meet up in the public carpark at Powerscourt House in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow. @ 12pm
A bit different this year as we will be driving on some of the old national championship hill climbs and roads used in some of the circuit of Ireland rally.
This run is very well located and only 20 minutes from Dublin so it will be an ideal way to give the car a blast before the MTM.
There will be a lunch stop but feel free to bring packed lunch/picnic.

Are you up for it????????

What a great run today, have to say some of the best mini roads we have driven on.
A big thank you to club member Feargal Driver for taking the time to put this route together and to all who turned up to make the day, 16 minis + Simon who had mini problems before the start but came along to take some great photos.
Hope you all had a good day and see some of you at the MTM its only around the corner.
PS thanks to the boys from the west for making the trip.
Flat out.... like a lizard drinking.
