The drifting began in Tullow a few years ago, hosting the likes of ae86 meets and Nissan Silvia meets, creating a good day out!
One of the men who made all this happen is Casey Furlong, who unfortunately passed away at the beginning of the year! R.I.P A succesful memorial event took place earlier this year which was a non profit event, all donations went towards charity.
In May, the lads running the show out there set up the drag racing. Although its not the perfect drag strip, its the only legal one in the republic, it saves a long journey up to Bishopscourt or Enniskillen.
Another great day the lads set up was the rally sprints which took place just before we got all the snow, putting a halt to the drag, drift and rally sprints(if the rally sprints will be popular enough to return).
A range of cars turned up, including the winner, John Hade, in his Mk2 Escort,
Dan Moorhead showed up in the 180,
Dominic Byrne in the s14,
A twin gsxr1000 engined mini. 🙂
Hope to see you at upcoming events in the yard in the new year! 🙂
