South Anne Street in Dublin 2 was a sight to behold as high performance cars and high performance party people descended on Indie Dhaba restaurant to officially launch CANNONBALL 5.

CANNONBALL is apparently the largest organised road trip in Europe and the most exciting motoring and social event of the year with most of the world’s top mark cars 160 in total such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, McLaren, Porsche, Masseratti, Rolls Royce and Bentley.  This year the start line for CANNONBALL will be at Mondello race track in Kildare on Friday August 23rd

Fans can experience the thrill of the chase as the finest cars on the planet are put through their paces, there will be a host of celebrities and Ryan Tubridy will broadcast his 2fm morning show live from Mondello at the start line.

Over 100,000 people will line the streets as CANNONBALL roars through towns and counties in spectacular style with festivals and Gatherings all over the country.  CANNONBALL 5 will raise money for Laura Lynn which supports children with life limiting conditions and their families by providing high quality transitional care, home support, respite, crisis and end-of-life care.
