The Adventure Begins...

11 - 19 JUNE 2016 0 DAYS

What is the Venture Cup?

It’s the world’s longest, toughest and most prestigious powerboat race. More than that, it’s an epic adventure where teams will be forced to meet the very toughest conditions the ocean can muster-up over 1,000 miles of Ireland’s spectacular coastline. Take the very best of motorsport, add in the unpredictability of the ocean, then mix in the bravest, craziest, most colourful crews around, and you’ve got all the ingredients of an epic race.

We’ll be bringing you all of the information, the insights, the pains and the gains, the bravery and the heartaches - and all of this will be delivered when and where you want it. The world will be watching when the Venture Cup takes to the seas in June - will you be a part of it?
