The Lancia Motor Club of Ireland will host a two day gathering in Kerry this weekend.

The Lancia Atlantic Tour will take place over the weekend of May 5– 7 and will be based in Tralee, and is supported by AutoGlym Ireland and Contract Flooring Supplies Dublin.

Although the iconic Italian brand last officially sold cars in Ireland in 1995, there is still a small but devoted following for Lancias in Ireland of all ages – from Pre-War cars to much more recent examples.

Over the last few months bookings have been received from all over Ireland and further afield, including a sizeable contingent from the UK.

The main event will take place over stunning roads around the Dingle Peninsula on Saturday while Sunday will visit the North Kerry and East Kerry areas.

“Some very rare and iconic cars are set to appear at the event, from 1930’s Lancia Aprilias to the World Rally Championship dominating Delta Intergrales and many and varied cars in between, including a pair of 1950’s Lancia Aurelias, which introduced many innovations that are now common or even standard on every road car,” said local organiser Tralee-based Cork man Andrew Mulqueen.

“Lancia remain the most successful manufacturer in the World Rally Championship with 10 manufacturers titles, so it is only natural that some of Kerry’s world-famous rally stages are explored over the weekend, including Inch Beach, Conor Pass and Camp Mountain.

“Although not a competitive event the sight Fulvias, Delta Intergrales and all of the diverse range of Lancias that are booked in are relishing the chance to take on these roads, not forgetting the scenery and unique weather.”

The weekend base for events is The Rose Hotel in Tralee
