Before you go through the formalities of applying for a licence, get on the track with one of our professional instructors to see what it takes to become a best-in-class driver. If you have your heart set on racing competitively, we recommend the Motor Racing Experience and the DARE experience.
Make the most of your time on the experience by asking our instructors for advice. They are only too delighted to share their love of motor racing and will gladly answer any questions you may have.Driving Experiences
Track days are when you drive your own car at Mondello Park. Assuming it passes scrutiny, you can drive your car fast and hard around the track. Be warned though, this isn’t a race and there are rules and regulations to observe. What an adrenaline rush though! We partner with trackdays.ie. See upcoming track days on their website.Go to Trackdays.ie
