Hot Racing Action

Lamborghini, Audi, Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes-AMG racecars will be in action at Killarney over a series of races that start on Friday afternoon. There will also be a gaggle of Backdraft Roadsters (read: Cobras) fighting for honours. The very last race of the year is the Killarney Nine Hour. This event will end in darkness on Saturday night, added an interesting dimension for drivers and spectators alike.
