Irish Rallycross Championship roars into life – Mondello Park

Irish Rallycross Championship roars into life

The PartsforCars Irish Rallycross Championship roared into life in Mondello Park this week, when the championship held its official launch. A who’s, who of Irish Rallycross was in attendance with the championship in it’s best position in many years.

The championship is delighted to welcome back longtime title sponsor PartsforCars for another year. Their renewed commitment and increased activities in the promotion of the championship can only attest to the strength of the series. PartsforCars will be joined by new sponsors Diamondbrite, IPRS ltd., Morris Roofing & Cladding Maintenance and Rigs 4 Gigs. An increased online presence will promote the championship to new levels and with many new and returning drivers committing to the championship it is going to be one of the strongest in years.

The historic Mondello Park circuit will host six of the seven rounds of the championship with General Manager Roddy Greene confirming they will “run multiple layouts to provide some unique challenges over the course of the year.” The Pallas Track in Tynagh Co. Galway will host a solitary round in 2019.

Getting underway on the traditional Mondello Park layout, the Rallycross season will burst into life on Sunday March 3rd. With many top supercars and modified drivers committing to be on the start line, it’s going to be an action-packed start to the season. From here the circus heads west to Tyangh to do battle on what is a very difficult but thoroughly rewarding track, akin to the historic rallycross tracks of Scandinavia.

We return to Mondello Park for the rest of the year, starting with round three on the reverse track layout on May 19th. The fourth and fifth rounds will be contested over a double header weekend on the 20th & 21st of July. Following a break the championship will return for two final events starting with round six on October 20th before the season is rounded out with the finale in Mondello Park on the November 24th.
