We are delighted to announce that once again the IVVCC and the UVCC are arranging a cross-border event for pre-1939 cars and T Type MGs which are part of pre-war design, similar to our very successful event in May 2018. The intention of the organisers is to have 25 UVCC cars and 25 IVVCC cars on this very special event and the route is focusing on the NE border area.
From Friday, 3rd April to Sunday, 5th April, 2020 we will be based in the Carnbeg Hotel & Spa, Armagh Road, Dundalk, Co. Louth for two nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.
Friday, 3rd April
The event will commence 12 noon at the beautifully located Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle, Co Down and this includes a light lunch before departing on a scenic route to arrive at the Carnbeg Hotel by 5pm. The Slieve Donard carries a Percy French theme, their casual dining pub at their front gate being called ‘The Percy French’ where they have a lot of period references and photographs. The hotel has offered a concession rate to anyone who would like to stay for the Thursday night).
Following check-in at the Carnbeg Hotel, we will meet for dinner that evening and have plenty of time to socialise.
Saturday, 4th April
Following a hearty breakfast, we will depart the Carnbeg at 9.30am, and take another scenic route, to include Carlingford and the surrounding countryside. There will be opportunities for a lunch break on the route, before returning to the Carnbeg for our Drinks Reception and Gala Dinner. Over the two day event there will be a number of regularity sections included on the routes.
Sunday, 5th April
We will be homeward bound, following breakfast and check out on Sunday morning. Once again, the very experienced organisers are Declan Grogan (IVVCC) and Terence Bradley (UVCC) who will provide well-constructed route books, making it an enjoyable event for all levels of navigational skills!!
The price for the event will be €450/£400 based on two people sharing a twin/double room, including event entry, car number plate, route book, light lunch, dinner/bed and breakfast on Friday and Saturday night, Drinks Reception and Gala Dinner and bed and breakfast. There is a single room supplement of €45 per night.
