Mondello Modified Live to boost the Irish Modified Car Scene

Mondello Modified Live The Irish Modified Car Scene will have a new show for 2013 with the arrival of Mondello Modified Live. The new event will take place on Sunday April 21st and will be a major boost to the Irish Modified Car Scene. The event will showcase the best of Ireland's modified car culture, along with a full days live entertainment on the Mondello Park track.

Mondello Modified Live is an event for owners of European, Japanese & American cars to display their vehicles. The show will feature displays by owners clubs, websites and individuals, as well as track action, including the first round of the new Irish Drift Championship, which is set to replace the Prodrift Series as the premier Irish Drifting championship.

The circuit will be kept busy for most of the day with qualifying and the finals of the opening round of the Irish Drift Championship. The drifters will share the track with round two of the Irish time-Attack Series, which for the first time will run in an anti-clockwise direction between drift sessions. When the competitive action takes a break, the track will continue to be busy as owners clubs and individuals will have the opportunity to take to the track and demonstrate the performance of their vehicles, in one of the twenty minute 'Track Day' sessions available.

At the April 21st event, the Show & Shine competition will play a big part in proceedings as the organisers search for Ireland's best presented Modified Cars. The competition will have more than €500 worth of prizes up for grabs and the show cars will have their own dedicated area for the first time. With the help of 'Autoglym' the entrants will be whittled down to a short list for closer inspection, before the overall winner is announced.

Mondello Modified Live will follow the venues popular show format of mixing live action and static displays and will be the biggest Modified Car event of the year outside of September’s Jap-Fest. Additional attractions will be announced over the coming weeks.

Display space is limited and entries for clubs, organisations and individual exhibitors and traders are now being taken. For information on how to get involved, car owners, clubs, websites and traders should visit our website or contact Mondello Park on 045-860200.
