Araglin Carnival - 27 July 2014

The unique Araglin Carnival meeting once again took Autograss racing to the local community, as the West Waterford members, plus a select band of visitors from the other Irish clubs, set about the challenging track that runs round the community sports field on the bank of the Araglin River, just at the point where the counties of Waterford, Cork and Tipperary meet in the Knockmealdown Mountains. Araglin itself is a tiny place but has been the home to one of Ireland's most enduring carnival weeks (10 days actually) for the last 58 years. Where all the crowds come from for the carnival events we have no idea, but the Autograss day is no exception and the spectator bank high above the track was packed with a festive crowd enjoying the atmosphere, the sunshine and the action, which again proved that a large field of cars isn't essential for an entertaining meeting. The climax of the Araglin event is always the Tim Barry Trophy race, and this year John Fuller blasted his Class 9 through the field to take the coveted perpetual trophy. 

We apologise for the quality of most of the photos - this was the last event before we invested in overdue new lenses and the camera itself gave up during the final couple of races.
