BUMBLEBEE 1000 completed its first supercar road trip of 2022 over the weekend.
And the event raised much-needed funds for a local charity in the process.
The designated beneficiary of his VIP drive event which started at Barberstown Castle in Co Kildare was Little Blue Heroes.
This brilliant charity helps needy families from local communities in Ireland whose children are undergoing long term medical treatment due to serious illness.
And Bumblebee 1000 confirmed that a whopping €15,542.74 was raised for Little Blue Heroes.
The supercar convoy – consisting of McLarens, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Audi RSs, BMW M-Cars, Aston Martins, Jaguars, Porsches, Bentleys, AMG Mercedes, Nissan R35 GT-Rs and American muscle cars – traveled through Kildare, Laois, Limerick and Kerry during the two day road trip.
The cars also tackled Ireland’s highest mountain pass, the spectacular Connor Pass, which used to be a rally stage on the Circuit of Kerry.
So it was the perfect backdrop for Ben Lambe’s equally spectacular street-legal Ford RS200 to see him tearing spiritedly through the mountain stage.
At each pit stop, local Little Blue Heroes were treated as VIPs and allowed to inspect their favorite cars.
It was a magical experience for the kids and Bumblebee 1000 had enlisted the help of their own VIPs.
The event was attended by comedian Al Foran, mentalist and magician Keith Barry and Irish football legend Niall Quinn.
And all the celebs were happy to show their support for the event and this very worthwhile cause.
