ON FRIDAY, September 14, Northern Ireland will see some spectacular sights as 150 of the finest cars on the planet blaze a trail through Ulster as part of Cannonball 2012.
The adrenalin fuelled event is the largest organised road trip in Europe and the most exciting motoring and social event of the year, involving most of the world’s top mark cars such as McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Masseratti, Rolls Royce and Bentley.
This year’s Cannonball, sponsored by XSDirect.com, will take in all four provinces for the first time, raising money for two children’s charities along the way.
On day one of the three-day tour of Ireland, Cannonball will make a lunch stop at the Galgorm Resort and Spa where the cars can be viewed by car enthusiasts and fans. The cars will then travel around Northern Ireland, taking in the spectacular Giant’s Causeway and on to Glenarm Castle where the cars will once again be on display.
At 5.30pm, after taking in the stunning Co Antrim coastline, Cannonball will get a Titanic welcome in Belfast. The 150 gleaming supercars will gather in the shadow of the iconic Samson and Goliath ship building cranes, to be viewed and enjoyed by thousands of car enthusiasts and fans.
