This timetable is a guide and while we try to keep to the times as close as possible,they may change due to unforeseen conditions and weather conditions will also have a bearing on the pace of the event.

Timetable for MTM2014

** Friday 9th May.

- 5 pm: MTM2014 Team in place to meet crews arriving in Seaview Tavern,Ballygorman,Malin Head.

- 7 pm: Drivers Sign-On and hand out of event packs at the Seaview Tavern,Ballygorman,Malin Head.

- 8 pm: Drivers Briefing Meeting & Official Launch of MTM2014.



** Saturday 10th May:

- 5am: Malin Head - Route books will be handed out & the first cars will depart from 6am sharp.(and we mean SHARP)

- 6.45am: Breakfast stop - Location will be identified in the route book .

- 12:30pm: Cars start to arrive at the Midpoint Halt for lunch - All cars must check in at the Control Car. The location will be marked in the route book.

- 1.15pm: First cars depart lunch stop - the second route book will be handed out .

- 7.30pm: First cars arrive at Mizen Head and then back to the Maritime Hotel,Bantry for food,drink and a well deserved sleep.



Please be careful for the last couple of miles heading to and from Mizen Head as you may encounter other Minis coming against you and the road is narrow with a few blind spots along the way as well.


** Sunday 11th May:

- 10.30am:Finishers awards ceremony will take place in the Maritime Hotel in Bantry


As with the previous two MTMs we will not be having the evening meal stop again this year prior to getting to Mizen Head in order to get entrants back to the Maritime Hotel in Bantry at a reasonable hour as there will be a drive of about 30minutes from Mizen Head back to Bantry.However if entrants fill the need to stop along the way to eat please feel free to but please note that the Maritime Hotel stops serving food at 9.00pm but that room service is available after 9.00pm.There are Chinese and Indian restaurants as well as fast food outlets located in Bantry as well.


As this is a new route with a never before used mid-way point we would ask all entrants to try and keep a steady pace with stops to a minimum for the first half to get to the lunch stop in a timely fashion as the second half will be longer and we don't want entrants out too late in the night.

Not long to go now for MTM 2014

Cars will be heading south via Portlaoise, Abbeyleix, Durrow, Urlingford, Cashel, Cahir, Clogheen, The Vee, Lismore, Tallow, Rathcormac, and a check-in at Watergrasshill. Very mixed weather in north Cork right now so visibility on The Vee may be poor.

Expecting first cars at Watergrasshill by 2pm.

No breakdowns so far. Cork Mini Centre are providing back-up this year.
