Superb Entry and Reduced Prices at Mondello Masters

The list of riders lining up to put an end to Alastair Seeley’s Mondello Masters domination continues to grow with just over a week to go to the biggest Mondello Park motorcycle race of the year. The two day event on October 3rd & 4th will feature the Masters Invitation race and the penultimate round of the 2009 Irish Superbike Championship.

Along with the quality line-up for the feature race and the excitement of the ISB races, the Mondello Masters event has now been made even more attractive to spectators with reduced price admission. Mondello Park has extended its money off offer to cover the October 3rd & 4th race meeting and spectators can now see the strongest line-up of the season for just €10.00 by visiting the Special Offers page on

The ‘Mondello Masters’ qualifying and race will take place on the Sunday of the two day event and the entry list will be headed by the top three from March’s season opener. Alastair Seeley on the Relentless TAS Suzuki, Jack Kennedy, who will be armed with a TAG Superbike for the first time, and David Haire on his regular ISB mount will all return and they will be joined on the grid by a who’s who of Irelands top short circuit racers. Regular British Superstock challenger Marshal Neil was Seeley’s closest challenger at this event twelve months ago and he returns for another go at beating his BSB Superstock rival. Reigning ISB champion Brian McCormack, fresh from his first road racing appearance at Killalane, is another who has committed to the masters and adding to the quality of the grid will be English rider Gary Johnson who will once again ride for Uel Duncan Racing! .

All of the top six from this seasons Irish Superbike series will be present for the Masters and the three ISB races which will also be run. Seeley and Haire will be joined by the other title challengers, Mark Johnston, James Dickson, Gerard Kinghan and Kirk Jamison but, as with the Masters, Seeley will still be the man to beat as he has won all nine ISB races he has contested this season. Look out to for some of the other Masters competitors who will make one-off appearances in the ISB races

As usual the Mondello Masters has attracted riders from other series as well as the Superbike championship with a number of top Supersport riders and a handful of road racers also joining in. The Street Sweep team will bring Irish Supersport championship leader Mark Lunney along with team mate Michael Sweeney, who took a fantastic second place in the Killalane Grand Final just two weeks ago. Regular Masters challenger Declan Swanton returns and as usual will be looking for wet conditions to level the playing field for his Supersport machine. Recent returnee to the British scene Mark Pollock will also be Supersport mounted as will former BSB Superbike Cup frontrunner Paul Barron.

Further additions to the Mondello Masters entry are expected to be announced over the coming days along with the event timetable.
