The Clones Job !!!

To promote the Annual Soap Box Race as part of the Clones Canal Festival 2014, some of the organizers made a fantastic re-make of The Italian Job !!!

I must say it is very very well done, all the key elements are in it including driving on the footpaths, the church scene, the Mini sales scene where they 'hid' and the water scene etc. but also little tiny parts of the original that made it so good and fans like us love.

Please check out there event here http://www.clonescanalfestival.com/Soapbox.html

Here is the video link : http://youtu.be/Y5yLkwEd7Wk

Methinks MCOI should make an appearance! Would anyone have any interest? Pop up maybe the Sunday?

Will this be just the Sunday?
Could be interested in scooting up.

There's a few nice roads up in that direction.

There is stuff on all weekend as far as I know Derek but the Mini thing will be Sunday.
A good few of us are going up Friday for the whole weekend of it.
