[Testing Waters] Beach Day, King of Dingle Run

Postby tehkub » Thu, 04 Jun 2015 2:27 +0000

Hey guys!

Ever since I have been to that beach, I was tempted to bring more petrol heads there, so I would like to know the scale of interest for such thing.

My plan is to meet up somewhere in Cork, say, CIT campus, have some chats and giggles till everyone arrives and then take off to an awesome beach near Castlegregory, spend an amazing time there. The place is beautiful, beach is driveable, its outside of city, so noone to bother us, it is just magnificent. Great place for drifting, BBQ and shizzle.
I drive 1.6, 92bhp Open-Diff mx5 and still had a blast, so any car will do!
This is the Video I made from my last visit to the beach:


Now, the beach is about 150km from Cork city but its 70% highway (toll free), so a good run would be ahead of us!
This would be the route to the beach.

Should the time, energy, and weather provide, we could also go for a Top Gear like spin around the Ring of Dingle, a stunning country road trough hills and waterfalls.

I realise that entire plan is quite ambitious, but if it works out, should render a memorable day for all of us!

Let me know here what kind of response should I expect.
If only ambitions worked with wallets...

It is hard to say as of now, weather does not make itself predictable.
I would love to do it in this month (June) Perhaps a weekend of many sources suggesting lovely weather. Ill Keep updating.
