The B.E.A.S.T. Run - Sun April 24

Post by Billy » Tue Mar 08, 2016 4:48 pm

Introducing the B.E.A.S.T. aka Billy & Eamonn's Alternative Southern Tour, 150 miles of twisty, hilly Mini-friendly roads covering counties Cork, Waterford, Tipperary, and Limerick which will give your Mini a good workout.

Eamonn Murphy (SR Regional rep) and I are putting together a new event held in Munster which will be the first IMOC Southern Region run of 2016. All club members welcome for a run which should knock off the winter cobwebs and be a great shakedown for anyone heading on this year's International Mini Meeting in Belgium.

Cars will assemble for breakfast and briefing at the Amber Services, Fermoy, just off junction 14, M8 from 10.00am on Sunday April 24th with first Minis leaving at 11am.

Entry is FREE for paid-up club members.

Just home from doing the final recce of the B.E.A.S.T. If the weather stays like today, you're in for a great day's Mini driving - loads of scenery, twisty good-surface roads, a couple of mountain passes, and two refreshment stops to let the rads cool down.

Remember entry is FREE for paid-up club members. Get your name on the list if you're taking part.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the BEAST last Sunday. The feedback was that it should be run again next year. In total we had 14 Minis, the weather stayed dry (particularly for the lad with no roof), the roads were twisty and the coffee stop at The Pilgrims Rest went well. Welcome to our new members who signed up on the day and to those whose first club run was on the BEAST.

Eamonn will be posting more photos but here's a few of mine:
