Drifting Practice to Stand Alone for the First Time

Saturday September 19th sees the running of the first ever 'Drift Practice Only' day at Mondello Park. Having supported the Irish Time-Attack championship all year this new phenomenon is now set to stand alone during the off-season. The lack of any Time-Attack action makes way for an extra group, bringing the number of spaces available to over eighty, but with every previous event being oversubscribed the additional spaces are expected to fill up fast

Drifting practice has become popular with both the competition and amateur drifter alike as it offers the chance to get more drifting experience under your belt than you would achieve in a full season of competition. The sessions run on a shortened, more flowing version of the Mondello Park National Circuit, which creates non-stop drifting action that is highly popular with spectators and participants.

A full competition car is not required, Roll Cages are not compulsory and passengers are allowed making Drifting Practice ideal for Competition Drifters and Track Day drivers who find drifting opportunities restricted on regular Mondello Park Track Days. Normal Mondello Park Track Day rules and regulations apply (for further information see HERE).

Bookings are now being taken. The cost is €150 for the day with no half day option. To book your place phone Jenny on 045-860200 or contact

Spectators are allowed and Adult Admission to the event is €10.00 with under 16's admitted free.
