Team Paddy Murphy achieved the best Coppa result up to now by finishing in 17th place out of 43 classified participants. The Coppa d'Europa 2022 started in Vlodrop and led through the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, the Czech Republic to Linz in Austria. As usual, it was three days of madness and it was great fun. After an incredibly good day 1, Paddy slightly lost ground and ended up in 17th place. The first 16 received a trophy. Well, Paddy will be back on the attack next year!
Paddy decided to follow in the footsteps of the filmmakers of Top Gear and The Grand Tour. He dreamed of different perspectives, rapid changes from outside to inside views and dramatic car and camera chases. Paddy had a drone at his disposal and thought to himself, how hard can it be? The footsteps proved quite big. For now.
It is Saturday morning at Hemberg, single sun rays pierce the fog on the road. But there, two more beams push through the layers of fog. White headlights and a black silhouette. A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of mountain roads and fast cars. Paddy Murphy, a young lad on a crusade, to champion the cause of classic cars and petrol heads.
The thing about Irish roads is that you'll never know what comes next after a hill or a bend. Just close your eyes, come and rely on the luck o' the Irish.Paddy Murphy, 2012
