Next Event is a non championship event on Saturday 2nd August

 TheTurkington Tar & Gravel Stages

With the success of our event in The Turkington Industrial Area in Portadown in March and with the support of the Turkington family we are holding our first ever gravel and tarmac non championship sprint event on Saturday 2nd August. This will be a unique event in that it will run to our normal race/sprint timed formula but we will use both the hard gravel areas within the venue as well as the tarmac roadway. Gravel tyres will not be required and suspension set up will not require modification so cars will not need expensive modification. Competitors and spectators will  enjoy some serious sideways action on this Rallycross style stage.

Telephone, text, email and on-line entries, are all now 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 get in touch with you. Last minute entries can be made at the venue office right up to our start time of 10.00am.

Irish Grand Prix at Mondello - Saturday 23rd August

Entries are now available for the 2014 Irish Grand Prix at Mondello Park. All the specific details regarding the event is now available via a link 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!

Halloween Event on Saturday 1st November....under lights!

The first round of the 2014/15 Winter Championship will take place on Saturday November the 1st with a full tarmac event in the Turkington Industrial Area starting at 12 noon. The first half of the event will be held in day light on the conventional 'clockwise direction' stage and then at 3.30pm the second stage will be created which will be in an anticlockwise direction and will run under floodlights. All competition vehicles will require full functioning headlights and lamp pods and spotlights will be permitted. This will be the first ever RSA event in darkness and will be popular with competitors and spectators on the Halloween weekend.   

New venue in Galway

A track inspection took place last week 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 next June 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.

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.
