Motorsport is a wonderful sport to be involved in. Challenging, spectacular and exciting. Circuit Racing, however, does not have to be as expensive as you might think. Included in the ICCR are a number of budget classes, both saloon and single seater, which you can race in without spending a small fortune!
The first step if you are interested in racing is to try one of the Mondello Park driving experiences; This way you can get on track in a race prepared saloon car or a single seater race car, without having to commit to purchasing one … just yet!
Once you are hooked (and you will be) the next step is to contact Motorsport Ireland and order a Starter Pack, costing just €10. You can also sign up for a free Motorsport Ireland Membership at the same time, giving you access to even more information and an array of discounts from various different suppliers.
Once you have read the starter pack, you contact Mondello Park and book yourself into an Introduction To Motorsport Course. This course, held at the Mondello Park circuit, has both theory (classroom) and practical (on-track) elements. Note: To book into this course, you will need to provide your unique reference number from your Motorsport Ireland Starter Pack Pack to confirm your course booking.
Provided you’ve studied your pack and paid attention during the course, you will be deemed by your assessor to have passed your test! Once you have passed the test, you can apply for your Motorsport Ireland Race Licence. From there, all you have to do is choose your preferred racing class and decide whether you would like to buy or rent a car. Once you’ve sorted out a car, contact the class you wish to race in so you can join us on track!
So, what are you waiting for?
