A charity supercar run is expected to pass through parts of County Roscommon next month.
The Bumblebee1000 will feature a number of rare and exotic motors over three days. The event, described as “Rise of the Beasts” will take place between June 9th and 12th.
The wide array of cars is expected to include a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a Ford GT and a Bentley Continental GT W12.
On the first day, the event, which starts in Kildare, is expected to traverse some of the county’s roads as it visits Kinnegad, Athlone, Claremorris and Westport.
The second day sees the cars make stops in Galway Plaza, Bunratty, Mallow and Midleton before the final leg of the trip, which takes them to the Garyvoe Hotel, Bandon and Rosscarbery, eventually finishing at the Mahon Point Shopping Centre in Cork.
Attendance along the way is free, though the public is encouraged to donate to the Little Blue Heroes charity collectors at each stop.
The event is in aid of the Little Blue Heroes Foundation (and its Honorary Gardaí). The Little Blue Heroes Foundation comprises past and present Garda staff and their friends, families and communities to help seriously ill children in need.
