We were down in Mondello Park earlier in March for the first Cannonball Ireland Track Day.
Despite the wet weather over 30 cars came out and had great fun on the track for the day, there was multiple heavy hitters including an Audi R8, Mclaren 720s and a Mercedes SLS AMG but we wanted to see how the future fared out on the track.
The car of the day for us was a gorgeous white BMW i8 complete with an AC Schnitzer bodykit and wheels, the rain was no deterrant for the owner who took it out on track and sounded great as it blasted down the straight with trails of water coming off its wide tyres.
Although it never saw the track we also spotted a gorgeous Porsche Panamera E hybrid in the carpark complete in white with acid green brake calipers. A winning combination for us and the ultimate four door economical mile muncher!
Over the last year we have been fortunate enough to see EV’s braving motorsport themed events such as Cannonball Ireland, Runway club Ireland and the Fundracer Track Day. It is exciting to see owners taking such a step in pushing the limits of the amazingly engineered cars and we cannot wait for what the rest of 2019 holds.
