We're putting on the Gowran Festival of Speed again this year on Sunday July 17th, and we would love to invite your club down to display at the show. You can even make a camping weekend out of it and come down on Saturday afternoon for our pre-event party, complete with live entertainment and a carnival! Admission is €10 and kids go free! Show cars get free entry, along with the driver.


It all kicks off the night beforehand - a live band is planned, our carnival will be up and running to keep all the thrill seekers happy, some of the competing cars will be on the grounds already and the Gowran Park bar will be open! Food will be available as well as overnight camping for the proper festival experience! (Camping is free for tents, small charge for camper-vans)

Alongside modern & classic car, truck and motorbike shows, there will be a huge array of live attractions!

We will have demos of all sorts of cars out on on our track, from modern rally cars to vintage racers, hillclimb cars, drag racing VW's and more! Citroen WRC driver Craig Breen is coming down to power around the track in a modified class rally car, with a 2.5ltr Millington engine under the bonnet!

Our live display area will have precision driving Autotest demos from some of Ireland's best drivers which was a huge hit last year. World famous stuntrider Mattie Griffin will also be taking to the live display area, defying physics on his BMW motorbike in an ultra impressive stunt show and TT legend John McGuinness will also be in attendance!
It's not too late to show your vehicle at the event - we have a handful of slots still available for track time. You can get in contact with us by sending us a message on here, or through our website:

If a number of people from your club are interested in coming down we can organise an area for you all to be together in the show!

Entertainment and bar available on-site from 4pm Saturday evening the 16th. On-site speed limit -10km/hr. Gates open at 8:30am and close at 10am on Sunday for vehicles on display. Car & trailer parking space available in stable yard car park (for display vehicle owners only). For all other show-goers, entrance is through the main gate.
