The 2015 Irish Grand Prix

Mondello Park - Saturday 22nd August

The 2015 RSA Irish Grand Prix  took place on the full international circuit at Ireland's #1 multi motorsport facility at Mondello Park in Co Kildare on Saturday the 22nd August in some beautiful weather, apart from a few showers during the fifth stage the event ran like clockwork and the 128 starters enjoyed seven high speed stages. 

Congratulations to the 2015 Irish Grand Prix Champion Jack Newman who blew all the rest of some serious competition into the weeds in his superbly prepared Escort and congratulations also to Alan Smyth in his Ya Car race buggy who finished top of the time sheets a full 10 seconds clear of his nearest rival.

Congratulations to the other class winners:

Ryan McKenna (1), John Murray (2), Christopher Woods (3), Mark Woods (4), Jamie Grant (5), John Murphy (7), Stephen McIlveen (8) & Colin Walker (11).

The full overall and class results are now available by selecting the Results link on the left side of this page.

Saturday 24th October - Aghadowey

*** Information - 1st June 2015***

After further consideration and a close analysis of the performance of the varying capacities of these machines (between 600 and 1000cc) and with consideration to the different venues we have in the championship calendar we have decided to have only one class for the first year of this Championship.

With this decision, engine tuning and over boring of engines is permitted and free but will be limited to the use of a maximum capacity of 1000cc production motorcycle original engine types.

Tyres are as currently permitted in 2015 for RSA/Motorsport Ireland regulations however the RSA will be  looking at controlling tyre costs in the future and currently the fuel type is free.

All machines must have a secure device fitted which can be opened from outside the cab, that prevents the drivers body parts becoming outside the cab structure in the event of a roll over. FIA approved harnesses must be 'in date', a minimum capacity 1 litre fire extinguisher must be fitted inside the cab and in the interests of driver safety, side protection 'nerf type' impact bars to prevent rear wheel frontal contact  with marker tyres and similar objects are mandatory .

Only 'Registered' competitors are eligible to earn championship points for this 2015 RSA Irish Race Buggy Tarmac Championship and registration can be made at a cost of £30 by the end of July. All registration fees in full will go towards the prize fund and trophies for the final championship awards and additional sponsored awards will also be presented.

The 2015 Race Buggy Champion will also qualify for free entries for the 2016 RSA Irish Championship worth an estimated £1000!

Non-registered drivers are still welcome to compete at any round but will not be able to earn championship points.

This Championship is open to ALL machines types that satisfy our technical requirements under scrutiny.

If you are interested in this new series and would like to discuss any issue including getting involved in competing, promotion and sponsorship please call:

Since 1990 we have always had a serious interest in the clubman competitor and the serious development of juniors (youths) in Irish Rally Sport which has evolved and proved to be very successful.

Our next serious interest is to introduce another new motorsport opportunity to the whole Irish marketplace - race karts for rent. This is a significant jump up from the normal four stroke industrial engined rental karts used at indoor and outdoor tracks. Our machines are real championship winning Tonykart 125cc two stroke Rotax Max Racing karts for both teenager and adult use which will open up the opportunity to experience a real karting experience and introduce anyone to the unique world of serious motorsport racing.

AND FOR EARLY STARTERS.. We will also have real Intrepid two stroke Comer cadet karts for 8 - 12 year olds.

Our race karts will be available for testing and practice and for real competition in proper professional race events at many different venues all year around Ireland and everything that is required for a real race event will be provided.

A competition licence is not required.

 All the obstacles to race have been removed  - you just arrive 'n drive!

These real packages will be similar to other UK and Irish based professional race teams where the Formula 1 drivers of today started their careers and will involve driver training and tuition, computerised performance analysis, race team transportation together with mechanical and track day support. This is a real racing experience in a real motorsport event and we are ready to welcome you to our team. Corporate and additional hospitality facilities can also be supplied.  

   Gift Voucher Packages will be available.

Interested?....just call Alan on +44 (0)7788 598461.

Watch this space for more details soon! ____________________________________________________________

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.

Several championships have now passed since the regulations were updated as a result of competitor requests and we will 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.
