The Ballymena Car Fest is one event I have never made it to. However I’d seen Artoir’s post in the events section, checked out the website and realised I had one day before entries closed. Time to dust off the more-door M3!
The morning of the 13th arrived and it was time to meet up with everyone at Dunsilly roundabout, and convoy down from there.
Pulling in to the car park I was greeted with quite a few RMS cars, all familiar from reading the Members Rides section.
Quite a few other clubs were meeting up there too, a variety of Impreza’s, VW’s and a Supra were waiting to convoy down.
As we filtered in to the playing fields we were directed to the RMS club stand area. After parking up we all had a chat and filtered off to do some final cleaning and preparation.
The rain stayed away all day and most of us went home ready to find some aftersun.
I found the whole event very well organised and well controlled. I was very impressed with the standard of cars there, everything was superbly clean and well presented. There was a wide variety of cars there, something for everyone!
It was great to finally meet people from RMS that I’d been chatting to for years.
Roll on next year as I will definitely be there. Thanks to Artoir for organising the stand too!
