West Cork Rally 40 years on

Post  JOB on Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:25 pm

Just to let you know that Niall O'Driscoll has put huge effort into staging a display of 1/43 cars at the Rally HQ this weekend. It commemorates 40 years of the rally . I will leave it to Niall to post the details but he has most of the winners over those 40 years. He is a little unfortunate as the event was won on a few occasions by Darrians.  Juha has already posted a picture on facebook. I will be there myself tomorrow. Well done Niall.

Earlier in the day the event organisers brought a selction of cars to Ballinascarthy which is a little village outside the event base of Clonakilty. Ballinascarthy is the ancestral home of the Ford family and has a full size Model T monument to signify the connection. I will try to post the photo of the rally cars with the monument.

I'd love to take credit for any one of those Donie, but I can't. I knew Niall had the collection but actually seeing the pics just brings home how superb the set is.

An incredible collection. I can only imagine the hours and hours of work that went into every one of those models. Thanks for sharing the photos. Hope to get a chance to see them 'in the flesh' sometime. Very well done Niall

What a stunning collection and display - congratulations to yourself Niall, and everyone else involved! From contributing to various Race Retro displays over the years, designing decals, and building one-off models for my own collection, I kn ow exactly how much work it entails!...

...a stunning display for sure! Shocked

I would personally love to have any one of those Metros in my own collection! bounce

Just a small mention for the Quality Hotel in Clonakilty who allow the use of their cake display cabinet for the weekend. It is fully lit and constantly revolving. They also vandalised the cabinet as the cabinets do not lock - they got their handyman to drive a long screw through the door thereby rendering it secure. Its typical of the hotel and the town who bend over backwards to facilitate the rally in any way possible.
