Irish Grand Prix at Mondello

 Saturday 23rd August

Its now less than three days to go to the 2014 Irish Grand Prix at Mondello Park and late entries are still available.

There are currently over 170 competitors on the entry list which is nearly our limit so if you have previously entered and are now unable to take part please let us know so we can give your allocation to other people requiring an entry place. You can keep in touch with how the entry for each class has developed by selecting the 'Entry List' link on the left side of this page.

It is advised to keep in touch with this site page regularly during the later part of this week for any specific last minute details.

Signing on and scrutiny will be available on Friday evening 5.00pm - 7.00pm and on  Saturday morning from 8.00am. Signing on will take place in the hospitality suite looking at the Dunlop Corner above the garages along the pit lane and will be sign posted. 

 On Saturday morning, scrutineering will commence at 8.00am in the scrutineering bay in the main paddock area and the drivers briefing is scheduled for 9.50am at the control tower with the observation lap to commence immediately after. Signing on will be available in the hospitality suite looking at the Dunlop Corner above the garages along the pit lane and will be sign posted and open from 8.00am on Saturday morning and number plates will be provided. It is advisable to bring adhesive (duct tape) to attach the plates to your car. All competitors will be required to complete an entry form at signing on (excluding those entries with forms completed and those paid on line)

The event will be held over six or seven timed runs through the day with competitors best five counting towards their score. A trophy presentation for First, Second and Third place in the ten classes will take place in the Clubhouse  shortly after the last stage has been completed and the fastest overall driver from all classes (except class 7 and 9) will receive The Overall Winners Irish Grand Prix 2014 Award. 

 All the specific details regarding the event are available via another link 'Mondello 2014' on the left side of this page so if you are thinking of looking for accommodation or a garage for this weekend we suggest you do so sooner rather than later as it is the last bank holiday weekend of the year and options may be limited! As this is a 'one day' Irish Grand Prix championship this year we have a large entry for the event so to be guaranteed a place and to qualify for free gate entry for your crew for Friday night or Saturday morning we suggest that you enter well in advance of the final entry list preparation date which is Friday 22nd August. Last minute entries at signing on will be accepted however you may be asked for an entrance fee by the Mondello gate attendants if you are not included on the pre-printed entry list!

The latest entry list is now available via the link 'Entry list' on the left side of this page!

Telephone, text, email and on-line entries, are available , however if you prefer to enter by phone you can do so on, or by text at +44 7788 598461 or by phone only on (048) 38 39 33 44. Due to our other current daily commitments you may not get an immediate answer but please leave a message on our voicemail and we will return your call later probably at an early evening time.  Alternatively send a text message or email your entry with all the details and your entry will be confirmed on the on-line published entry list before the event, if we have any queries we will contact you.

New venue in Galway

A track inspection took place in June at the Pallas Karting, Tynagh venue near Balinasloe in County Galway. It is a fantastic full car and kart race venue with a wide tarmac track giving us many options. We are currently working at organising a date for an event there however to facilitate competitors cars, service vehicles and spectators cars we would need to use grass covered parking areas and with our plans and dates already heavily committed to October 2014 it will most likely be June 2015 onwards before we will be able to have our first event at this new venue in a beautiful part of the country. If you have an interest in our 'Western Adventure 2015'  please keep in touch with us here for the latest information.

This years Championship kicked off with round one of 'The Protoplas Summer Championship' with our first ever visit to a new venue of the current BTCC leader, Colin Turkington's fathers industrial estate in Portadown. It is a superb venue and provided us with another challenging and exciting RSA venue for the first round of the 2014 Summer Championship, and as it was well enjoyed by all and we will be back there in August for a non championship event!

 Round two at Nutts Corner was another great event held in superb conditions and rounds three and four were back at Nutts Corner on Sunday the 15th and Saturday 19th July and they were absolute crackers!

We return to Mondello Park for round five of the Summer Championships on Saturday the 23rd August which will also incorporate The 2014 RSA Irish Grand Prix and with it being a 'one day' event this year it will surely be another 'Mondello Cracker' with our friends from all parts of the country coming together to take part!

We are including a round in the superb private estate and ideal summer venue at Moneyglass on Saturday the 20th September and our final and prizegiving is planned for Nutts Corner on the 12th October.

Any car which is found to be over the permitted noise limit of 105dba at 3500 - 4000 rpm (5000 - 5500 rpm for race buggys) WILL be disqualified from the session and not allowed to compete until satisfactory repairs have been completed. Particular attention will be given to turbocharged and motorcycle engined cars and anti lag systems are strictly forbidden at this venue. Please be advised that entry fee refunds or 'carry-overs' will not be issued to competitors where their car has failed a noise test during this event. Iphone users can download an appropriate app to measure noise with phones so testing and modifications should be carried out before presentation of cars at scrutiny to avoid any disappointment.

Special Information for Nova/Corsa Challenge Cars - Class 1 & 2

Class 1 and Class 2 competitors are advised that we will be conducting detailed random scrutiny at every event from now on to enforce compliance of the class regulations as of October 2012, details of which are available by selecting the appropriate button on the left side of the homepage.

Fourteen months and two championships have now passed since the regulations were updated as a result of competitor requests and we have decided to enforce these regulations in full. We expect serious competitors to comply with these regulations and be advised that we will not permit any non compliant car to compete in either class 1 or 2 until we are satisfied that it concurs to the class regulations.

It is in competitors interest to ensure that cars conform to the RSA regulations and the appropriate bolts are drilled ready for mandatory sealing. Any car found to be unsuitable or unprepared for sealing to comply for the regulations for class 1 or 2 will not be permitted to run in the challenge classes but will be allowed to compete in class 3.
