MOTORSPORT fans throughout the southeast were in for a treat recently with the launch of 'The Southeast Motor Club' at The Horse and Hound hotel in Ballinaboola.

There was a fabulous display of rally, race and classic cars, with a single seat hillclimb car, proudly on display within the hotel's function room.

Motoring enthusiasts travelled from near and far to attend the launch, in anticipation of some great cars and they weren't disappointed.

Southeast Motor Club spokesman Eugene French said: 'There were many activities for all from rally computer games to wheel changing competitions and the function continued into the night with music from The Rouges.'

The aim of this club is to offer local motorsport enthusiasts an outlet to enjoy participation in a club and organisation, as well as an emphasis on the social aspects of the sport.
