It’s less than six weeks before entries close on August 11th for Titanic Déjà Vu Ulster! 100 entries have already been received from many corners of the globe.
Bones O’Connor is coming from Australia to reunite with many of his old Irish rallying friends; Brian Powley (the first Tarmac Historic Champion), from the USA; Darryl and Joanne Hammond from New Zealand; Walter Rohrl from Germany; John Haugland from Norway; Louise Aiken- Walker from Scotland; David Mann, John Taylor, Mike Wood and Phil Short from England; Derek Boyd and Ian Corkhill from the Isle of Man; and twenty-five crews from the Republic of Ireland with the remainder from Northern Ireland.
Walter Rohrl will lead an armada of Porsches, (twenty-eight so far), driving the Carrera 911SC lent by John Mulholland, with Brian Powley in a similar Rothmans liveried car. Appropriately, Porsches are the top marque in the German company’s 70th anniversary year.
There will be a dozen historic Mini Cooper Ss, eight of the ever-popular Escorts. Sunbeam will be represented by Lotus, Tiger and Avenger models, BMWs, Triumphs, Opels, Vauxhalls, Toyotas, a Fiat Abarth 131, an Alpine Renault A110, a Saab, Honda, Aston Martin, Mitsubishi, Lancia Delta, Alfa Romeo and a Subaru and a beautifully restored MkII Jaguar, recently featured in Classic & Sportscar magazine.
Spectators can enjoy this cavalcade of classic, historic and supercars when they set out on their 140-mile route from the Titanic Slipway at 10.00 am on Saturday 1 st September or at the lunch halt in Cushendun Village between 12.30 and 2.30.
