Among the highlights this season will be the first ever running in Ireland of Jackie Stewart's 1967 Indianapolis 500 Lola T92. 

This car is one of the first rear-engined racecars to run at the Indy 500 and was part of the British invasion of the brickyard, which spelled the end for the previously dominant front-engined American roadsters.

The car, which was also known as the T90 MK2, was a development of the T90, which had won the 1966 Indy 500 in the hands of Graham Hill. 

Stewart had numerous problems with the car in '67 including an issue in qualifying that meant he had to qualify his spare car. 

In the race, Stewart ran strongly until Lap 168 when he retired due to engine failure, but was till classified 18th. The sister car of Al Unser finished second. 

This famous racer is now owned by Martin Birrane and has been in residence for the last couple of years in the Mondello Park Museum of Motorsport, which is open to the public free of charge during Classic Live. 

The car has previously been demonstrated at historic events, including Goodwood, but June 22 will be the first time such a car has been seen, and heard, in action in Ireland. 

Along with the Lola demonstration, the 2014 Carole Nash Classic Car & Motorcycle Live show will also feature the largest ever gathering of Irish-built road and race cars, classic car and motorcycle racing, classic vehicle clubs, an autojumble and an extensive trade area.
