Ford & Friends @ Killarney 7/10/2017

As I have it, there would be at least 4 racing versions, of the cars featured on the African Muscle Car mainsite, at this event.

There are a couple of this forum's member cars there too.

The Cortina Interceptor pictured is the one Gary Stacey built (Sarel vd Merwe is driving it) and there is a post or two about it somewhere.

Nic Sheward also brought the Presto Sierra XR8 Gp1 replica car down.

My ex- Sierra XR6 is racing (Jackie is driving) and did well in its first , "just off the jacks", practice run.

Also Willie Hepburn with his Wesbank racing Chevy V8, Larry Wilford with a Skyline GTX and many more. Some really nice cars there this weekend.

I am trying to get pics across from my phone to post here, no luck so far.

Some pics of the racing on the day. By all reports the guys enjoyed it very much.

The huge grid ready for race 1 start.

First corner excitement with Cavaleri in the BNW 745i overcooking it slightly under brakes....

Oom Sarel (now 70) wringing the Cortina out. By the look of it, it runs the stock suspension.

The damage after the prang. Real shame about that, but can probably be patched up again.
