Mondello Park Race Experience Gets Formula One Theme

Mondello race experience The new Mondello Park Race Experience was launched at the County Kildare Track on Sunday February 17th with an all new Formula One theme on show for the first time. Other changes include improved course content, a lower price and the chance to win a free season racing in Formula Sheane in 2014.

The hugely popular Motor Race Experience gives drivers with no previous racing experience a unique opportunity to drive a single seater race car and is the closest most will ever get to emulating their Formula One heroes. To add to the Grand Prix feeling, the Mondello Park single seater fleet has now been styled on the latest Ferrari and Red Bull Formula One colour schemes, as well as adding an Irish angle with some Jordan look-a-like cars.

Mondello Park operates a fleet of professionally prepared racing saloons and single seaters, with drivers receiving extensive tuition in the saloons before they progress to the adrenaline filled single seater experience. As part of the new format, a reduced classroom briefing session sees drivers move straight from the saloon car to the single seater. This results in participants completing their course in less time than before, even though they spend virtually the same amount behind the wheel.

As an extra incentive for drivers to get the best from their experience, on each day the course is run during 2013, the chief instructor will select one driver to go forward to the heats of the 2014 'Become a Racing Driver' competition. The competition, which is only open to drivers who have never held a competition licence, will result in one driver winning a seasons racing in the Irish Formula Sheane Championship, completely free of charge.

The new look Mondello Park Race Experience is now more attractive than ever to Formula One and Performance Driving fans. With its new colour scheme, new course content, a reduced price of just €199 and the opportunity to win a free seasons racing, there is no better way to get your first Motor Racing buzz.
