A wide range of racing cars are at the third Annual Motorsport International Show at the RDS.
In the Live Action Arena of the RDS Simmonscourt Pavilion, stunt supremo Terry Grant, demonstrates the art of spinning his Team Dynamics Legend car while standing on the roof. Grant has previously raced in Ireland, but is excited to be performing.
It’s like a breath of fresh air watching the people’s faces, they just can’t believe some of the tricks that we are pulling off.
The show boasts the largest collection ever assembled in Ireland of Formula 1 cars and includes the world’s first ever three-seat Formula 1 car.
One of the show highlights is a collection of cars rallied by four-times Irish Tarmac Rally Champion, the late Bertie Fisher. Described by event organiser Linda Keen as,
A wonderful collection of his cars that he rallied over the years, and they are absolutely brilliant, they are in their original colours.
The Motorsport International Show will be officially opened by Toyota Formula 1 driver Allan McNish.
