An action-packed supercar spectacle blazed a trail through Cork on Friday last, September 9th as the entourage of 200 vehicles which left Dublin, stopped at the Circle-K service station outside Fermoy as part of the annual nationwide Cannonball tour.

With proceeds of the run assisting the HOPE Foundation, this is the largest organised road trip in Europe and this year, the event had the highest ever number of car entries including Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin Porsche, Rolls Royce Bentley and Maserati.
