Porsche Club Ireland will host the 2015 annual family BBQ & Concours event at the Radisson Blu St Helens Hotel on Sunday August 2nd 2015.

We have a great line up of activities planned for the day:

A subsidised gourmet BBQ dinner – we are taking advantage of the Radisson’s new award winning German Chef by going for an ‘Oktober Fest’ theme this year!

Concours competitions for all Porsches (if you wish to enter, see below for the details for the ‘Street’ and ‘Concours de Elegance’ sections)

We will be launching the new PCI Junior Member Program on the day with lots of fun activities to keep the kids entertained. To include: a Porsche themed treasure hunt, video games, and some other surprises on the day!

A prize draw for items donated by PCI members and sponsors. (Please contact us if you want to donate something!) All proceeds this year will go to Barretstown Children's Charity.

Gates open from 10am.

Car washing facilities will be available from around 11am.

The events kicks off officially at 2pm - but please feel free to arrive earlier. This is a family day and we hope that all models of Porsche will be represented.

As previous years, we would like to arrange cars in order of model so please drop us an email or give us a quick call and let us know if you are going to attend as this would be a great help to those arranging the cars to allocate sufficient space.
