At a time of year when most things are beginning to wind down, Nutts Corner went full throttle as the NITRO FESTIVAL roared into town.
Nutts Corner staged some of the best live motorsport action ever seen in Ireland. Top Rally Stars in their famous cars will combine their efforts to provide on lookers with a breath-taking display of speed and skill. Topping the bill were ex British & Irish Rallycross Champion Lawrence Gibson in the 6R4 and Mk2 Escort hero Wesley Patterson. Two men well associated with seriously sideways shenanigans.
Located at Nutts Corner, the arena will echo the sounds of Rally cars, Drift cars and an array of racing thoroughbreds. Such cars as the Metro 6R4, Subaru Impreza and Mk2 Escort have combined over the decades to produce that famous soundtrack of Irish Rallying; one that has inspired fans for many generations.
Nitro Festival combined these great legends with the tyre smoke and flames of the Japanese Drift cars to produce a supercharged symphony of speed that will define the modern era.
Adding to the action packed program was the Blue Max Jet Beetle, with its 40ft afterburner lighting up the arena. The 2 wheeled fraternity will be represented by UK land speed record holder Jack Frost with his line-up of turbo charged bikes, including his incredible 700+Bhp Hayabusa.
