Barry Blomkamp is the name… I am the blind dude you often see
knocking his white stick around the Killarney main and Karting
pits, and various club houses. It often looks as if I have no idea
of what is going on around me – but watch out, You never know if I
am blind or just don’t look so goood!
Back in 1988 I mashed my Lotus into a parked car and my face and
eyes into the windscreen… I was damned lucky to survive.
I’ve been madly passionate about motor racing since I was a little
boy. You might not be aware I’ve been around Killarney race track
since 1964, used to race all sorts, have been awarded various
trophies and became a commentator (after the prang) – in ’89, have
been given a WPMC merit award and in 2004 our Exco kindly awarded
me honourary membership.
Away from my commitments at the track, my primary business is
Turbo Talk Training – out of which I deliver many Motivational /
Inspirational speaking and with the help of my guide dog, do a lot
of Corporate Comedy and Master-of-Ceremonies kind of work all
around the country.
Vixen the Guide Dog and I also do talks to all levels of
schools, technicons and universities.
