Cancel your lunch plans on September 9th.
The first ever Ecto-1 Ghostbusters Car built in Ireland is rolling into Fermoy and Kinsale next Friday, offering movie fans a chance to get an up-close look at the iconic car.
The Ecto-1 will be touring Ireland as part of Cannonball, the action-packed 200-supercar spectacle rolling through Irish towns from September 9th-11th.
Cork-based charity the HOPE Foundation is the chosen charity for Cannonball again for 2022. The event has already raised €1,298,779 for Irish charities and organisers are hoping to reach €250,000 for HOPE by the end of September 2022.
The rare supercars will take the first pitstop of the event at 12.30pm at Circle K in Fermoy and the gleaming convoy will then make its way to Kinsale for lunch at 1pm.
“The first ever Ecto-1 Ghostbusters Car built in Ireland is proudly presented by Galway Bay Brewery.” they told us.
“The build commenced with a 1960 Cadillac and took five years to transform into Ecto-1 including the iconic roof rack, Proton Packs for all of the crew, Ecto Goggles, P.K.E. Meters, and a slew of Ghost Traps. The car is 23 ft long with a straight piped short blockV8 motor.”
For Cannonball it is fitted with a jaw-dropping laser light show, and smoke machines.
The largest organised road trip in Europe, this year’s event will have the highest ever number of car entries including Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin Porsche, Rolls Royce Bentley and Maserati too.
