The Darren Swanton Memorial Cork City RallySprint

Organised and promoted by Cork Motor Club Ltd., in association with Cork City Council and the Bishopstown and District Lions Club, the event aims to raise funds for the Marymount Hospice. Darren Swanton was a 32 year old member of the Cork Motor Club who died of cancer in Marymount in 2009. The event will be run over a 5.2 Km loop within the grounds of the Cork City Amenity site on a mixed tarmac and gravel surface, which will provide drivers with a stern challenge, and spectators with a safe environment to experience the speed and thrills from what should prove to be a very challenging track. It will be the first public event on the site which Cork city officials are transforming into a massive amenity park. Most of the vast site has been landscaped as part of Cork City Council plans to transform it into a public park which will eventually feature playing pitches, an all-weather area to host concerts, wildlife walks and an exercise area dubbed "cardiac hill".

Tickets for the event are on sale at the following locations:
· The Commons Inn, Mallow Road, Blackpool.
· R&R Jerry Murphy Tyre Services, Myler Industrial Estate, Ballincollig.
· Coleman's Car Care, Wilton Shopping Centre.
· Bull McCabes Bar & Restaurant, Airport Road
Tickets are €10 per individual, or €25 for a family ticket.
