    The Tynagh Track near Loughrea could be an option.

    It is a small track, but quite fun and they do trackdays down there.

    You would not be able to run anything that was registered on 1.1.1980 or thereafter.

    I had a look at this again ...

    The 0.79c/kWh pricing only applies, if you're paying Ionity directly.

    Each of the manufacturers have different pricing on Ionity chargers through their own deals:...

    Ionity's competition in the supercharger sphere and also Tesla themselves charge around 30c/kWh.

    Oh. And here is the kicker: Revenue have fixed the issue by what looks like specifying the NOx as 0.0001 in logbook.

    That should be interesting, should NOx ever be tested as part of an NCT.

    I spoke to Revenue. And it is literally only cars affected.

    So commercials, campervans, vintage cars, busses and trucks are not covered by the NOx levy.
