The Midland American Auto Club in Kilbeggan, co. Westmeath is holding its annual All-American Show in Kilbeggan in County Westmeath on the Saturday and Sunday 10th and 11th September. This year is our 10th Anniversary.

People come from Dublin, Meath, Kildare, Westmeath, Louth, Wicklow, Waterford, Cork, Clare, Roscommon, and the North to the show. We are expecting 3000 people and 500 American cars, bikes and big Ameircan trucks.

It is the only all-American show in Ireland all year and is starting to turn into an American lifestyle event as well as a car show with 5 bands booked and period 50’s and 60’s American music played all weekend – Just like in Eddie’s!

Lat year we did a show guide which was very well received and are repeating it again. We would like you, your company and any company you know to advertise in ythe show guide for only 80 euros for a ½ page in full colour, 130 euros for a full page in full colour or full cover pages for 200 euros.

The show guide will have an introductory foreword from the Club welcoming everybody to the show, it will give a 10 year history of the club, feature some of the American cars, trucks & bikes of the club with photos and a write up, give a timetable of events (cruises, BBQ, drive in movie, band scheule etc) for both the Saturday and the Sunday, have maps of the showfield and the routes of the two cruises, other essential information and phone numbers.

The showguide wil be given to all entrants on the Saturday lunchtime/ afternoon as they arrive, Sunday entrants and the general public attendees so will give Eddie Rockets visibility not just amongst all the vehicle entrants but also aspiring owners, interested parties American lifestyle afficionados and the general public and their families as well.

We anticipate that the showguide will be a keepsake for many people and will have a shelf life longer than just the weekend.

Many thanks and we hope we have an opportunity to move your business forward for you at a nominal cost.

In any event we look forward to seeing you all at the show to celebrate with us!


Best regards, Nick Stratta

LIMERICK CLASSIC AND VINTAGE CAR CLUB NEWS

Grand Prix Cars take to the Streets of Limerick

On the weekend of September 3rd and 4th the Limerick Classic and Vintage Car Club, (LCVCC), host an event for pre 1940 sports cars to mark the 75th anniversary of the 1936 Limerick Grand Prix. An afternoon run on Saturday will be followed by a gala dinner that evening. Sunday will begin with the cars completing several laps of the original race circuit with a garda escort. The cars will then park up in the picturesque Pery Sq. area of the city. Lunch will be served in the No.1 Pery Sq. hotel followed by an exhibition of memorabilia, photos and programmes from the original race in No.2 Pery Sq., a Georgian house, recently restored by the Limerick Civic Trust. A plaque will be unveiled as a permanent reminder of these ‘Round the Houses’ races.

The LCVCC would like to thank all the IVVCC members that took part last year and invite all pre 1940 sports cars to this year’s event as this will be the last opportunity to lap this historic circuit. Thanks are also due to the Limerick City Council, Limerick Civic Trust and the Gardai without whose cooperation this event would not be possible.
