Car Races & Time-Attack to share Mondello programme

Mondello Park
This Sunday, July 1st, the County Kildare Motor Club car event at Mondello Park will be the first of the season to combine Car Races and the 'Trackday Performance' Irish Time-Attack Championship. The Kildare club will be in charge for the seven car races on the programme with Mondello Park taking over for the running of the four Time-Attack sessions.

Topping the car race bill will be the Superfast Formula Libre Single Seaters who will race twice during the event. The other single seater action will be provided by the Budget racers from Formula Vee who will be on track for a single championship race. The remainder of the programme will be completed by two races each for a combined grid of Stryker Sports Cars and Legends, and the future stars of the Ginetta Junior Ireland championship.

Time-Attack has undergone a major resurgence in interest this season, fuelled by a new class structure and the backing of car preparation specialists 'Trackday Performance'. Entries have crept towards the twenty mark, for each of the four events held so far this year and this weekend the championship could have one of the biggest entries on the programme. The Time-Attack cars will battle it out for fastest lap time over four sessions, two qualifiers, a group final with all cars on track and a single lap Super Lap session where the majority of the points are on offer.

Sunday's event gets under way with qualifying from 09:30 with the first competitive action, Time-Attack Qualifying 1 set for 10:30. Adult admission is just €10 with under sixteen's admitted free and all admission includes a free event programme.
