AROC Ireland Section Events Diary

The Ireland Section run a small but varied events programme throughout the year. All members and visitors are welcome to attend these events.

Monday 7th August 2017

Following on from last years successful attendance at the Dalkey festival the club attended again this year. We had a packed stand this year and due to the confines of the village car park some latecomers were not able to park on the stand. A special thank you has to go to David Kennedy for setting up the club gezebo and marking out our patch early that morning.

This years show was held in glorious sunshine on Sunday 2rd July in the grounds of Terenure College. We again had our usual pitch complete with club gazebo and we had a steady stream of people from opening time right up to closing. We did not have as many cars on stand as in previous years but it did mean that people could move around the stand more easily and get a good look at the cars on display.

Saturday 27th May:

We returned again to the NIIMC show at the Lagan Valley Island this year. We had 10-15 cars in attendance this year and were again warmly welcomed by Alastair and the club.

The morning got underway in miserable conditions as we left Dublin for our stop off at the Applegreen services on the M1 at Castlebellingham. It wasn't until we got to Newry that conditions changed for the better and we were treated to a fine and dry day in Lisburn.

As usual there was the a varied selection of italian cars and motorbikes on show. 

TI Auto's Track Day 2017:

This years TI Auto's track day took place on Saturday 13th May. It was the biggest ever gathering of Alfa's at this event due to the fact it was held on a saturday so was better attended than usual.

We had a varied selection of Alfa's in attendance and we had the use of the international circuit this year which added to the occasion.

The weather for the most part behaved itself and again sustenance was provided by Gerry and family with some onsite catering.

AROCI SPRING RUN 2017

Our first section outing of the year took place on Sunday 9th April which was a run up the Dublin and Wicklow mountains.

Some 15 cars assembled on an overcast morning at our starting point in Avoca in Saggart between 10.30 and 11.30am. We were also joined by a 4C and a Guilia 2.9 V6 cloverleaf at the start which generated alot of interest and admiring looks.

Terenure Car Show 2016

We once again attended the Terenure car show which was held in the grounds of Terenure college on Sunday 3rd July.

We had a good collection of cars on the stand including a pair of 75's, three 155's as well as the usual mix of GTV's, Spiders etc.

We had a steady stream of people through the stand all day helped no doubt by the good weather.

Saturday 28th May 2016

Once again the club had a good collection of cars in attendance at the annual NIIMC show in Lisburn.

The feature car at the show this year was the McLaren 575 S

1st August :   Dalkey Vintage Festival 

Many members of the club attended the Dalkey Vintage Festival this year, The theme of this years festival was "Italian Passion" and the organisers wished to have as many italian cars as possible for a static display in the village car park. There was a good turn out of cars. Fiat Ireland also had the new Guiletta Sport on display. From a club perspective the day was very sucessful as we managed highlight the club in a venue we have not used before.

The by-now annual TI Auto's track day was held at Mondello Park on the 13th May 2016. This years event was blessed with sunny weather and was in contrast to last years wet and windy conditions, We had approximately 40 cars on track over the course of the afternoon ranging from the 60's right up to the present day. All cars managed to stay between the barriers this year and conditions were ideal.

We would like to thank Gerry and family for another fantastic event this year. Long may it continue.
