The Saturday hill is the same route as last year, beside the village of Naul. It is a technical hill consisting of a number of junctions, sweeping corners and steep gradient in parts. The paddock is located in a field that is smooth enough to facilitate the single seaters as well as saloon cars. The prizegiving on Saturday evening is in Naul village. This year we will be accommodated in the Seamus Ennis Centre Theatre for the prizegiving followed by the 2 course meal, which is priced at €17 per head. Killians pub across the road will also be a gathering place, no doubt.
There is overnight parking for campervans on both Friday and Saturday nights in a field in the middle of Naul village It is up the little road beside Killians pub. This is just opposite the prizegiving and dinner location, so not too far to walk!
The Sunday event is based at White River Karting track (www.whiteriver.ie) which is approximately 20miles away but well worth the journey. The journey is up the M1 to exit 12 northbound, turn left and travel approx 4 miles until you see the track on right hand side. The track is built to a high standard and follows the contours of the valley where it is built. There are uphill and downhill sections with a course length of about 1200m. Although the track is 8 meters wide, it is quite twisty so it might suit the smaller, more nimble cars better. We could have John Byrne and Joe Courtney fighting for the honours instead of McKinley having it all his own way. There is ample paddock space. The track building overlooks the whole circuit and there is a viewing area upstairs. Prizegiving will be held in this building. Look forward to seeing you there!
