Dear Affiliate Member

We are all set for the IVVCC Festival of Transport in Punchestown which we have organised to include all our affiliate clubs and other transport organisations next Sunday and we hope that as many of your members as possible will bring their cars to the event or visit the festival on Sunday.

Car(s) being displayed should arrive at Punchestown before 8.30 am on Sunday morning, or alternatively cars can be brought there on Saturday as there is full security on Saturday night.   Ideally, affiliate clubs members should aim to arrive together to facilitate easy access.

The festival is open to the public from 10.00 am to 5 pm on Sunday and it will be a great opportunity to see some exceptional cars.  Come and see a special Super Car display, a Brass Display, Veteran, Vintage and Classic cars as well as other forms of transport, steam engines, motorbikes, etc.

Over 40 trade and autojumble stands are taking part in the event, all in an enclosed area, which will be of interest to many of our members.  As it will also be a family occasion there will be  amusements for children, bouncy castle, facepainting, etc.  There will be a variety of catering choices also available.

Tickets €10  may be purchased at the ticket kiosks on Sunday.

There is ample free parking in the general parking area for people who are not exhibiting a vehicle at the event.

We look forward to seeing you next Sunday in Punchestown.





The IVVCC is pleased to announce that we will be organising a very special event on Sunday 14th May to be held inPunchestown Racecourse, Co Kildare.

We believe that this event, which we are designating as the IVVCC Festival of Transport in Punchestown, will appeal to all historic and classic motoring enthusiasts, steam operated machinery and all forms of transport. This will be an attractive day out for the general public to come and see transport from the dawn of motoring up to modern classics.

The Festival of Transport is primarily a partnership between the IVVCC and our affiliate clubs. The Punchestown complex comprises indoor parking for 600 hundred cars and also outdoor parking for at least 1000 vehicles, so there is ample space to accommodate everyone. This venue is very suitable for this type of event, as weather mainly ceases to be an issue.

We hope that you will embrace this opportunity to become involved in an exciting festival and you should email:ivvcc.fot@gmail.com or Ph: 01-4016988 (office hours) for ticketing information.

We look forward to seeing you at this special event.
