The supercars stopped at Holy Family PS, Mullingar during last year's charity run.

Summer supercar spin in Westmeath tomorrow

Families and children in the towns and townlands along the route of the ‘Rise of the Beasts’ supercar spin are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their favourite supercars tomorrow, Friday June 9, Saturday 10th, and Sunday the 11th.

The spin is in aid of the Little Blue Heroes charity, which is raising money to grant the wishes of the children they support to become ‘honorary gardaí’ and to run children’s events for the Little Blue Heroes.

The colourful collection of cars will have many stops during the three days, including Kinnegad on the first day, and families are welcome to go along to view some of the world’s rarest and most desirable supercars.

Some well known faces are joining the festivities, including comedian Al Foran, social media sensation Alan Clarke, radio presenter Mark Noble, and motoring correspondents, Bob Flavin and Darren Ligget, who will be capturing every exciting moment and providing their expert insights.

Attendance at stops and finish lines on the Bumblebee 1000 drives is always free.

Please contribute a few euro to support the charity, if you can, on the day, or online to

Bumblebee1000 has a remarkable track record of joining forces with other charities like Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, Enable Ireland, and Pieta House.

This time, it’s the Little Blue Heroes Foundation, a group of caring garda staff, their loved ones, and the wider community, united in their mission to help seriously ill children in need.

So, whether you’re a youngster with a passion for awe-inspiring cars or a parent eager to inspire your little speedster, keep your eyes peeled for Bumblebee1000’s adventures.
