THE RALLYSPORT ASSOCIATION
IRISH GRAND PRIX 2017
The Rallysport Association, an independent organisation which promotes alternative motorsport in Ireland has announced the fifth Irish Grand Prix Rallysprint Championship to be held at Mondello Park in 2017. ThIs unique one day event will take place on all tarmac international circuit stages on Saturday the 29th July 2017 at Mondello Park, County Kildare.
It is planned to have one 5 minute all tarmac stage used seven times, so you are looking at more than half an hour of competitive stage driving per person in this event. Cars will be seeded and let off at between 5 and 10 second intervals, dependant on performance, and with no breaks in the flow of cars onto the stage, and we intend to have a pretty busy stage so the spectators will always have lots of action to see, and with the unique Rallysport Association event formula we expect plenty of no contact, bumper to bumper race battles and with plenty of passing opportunities on the wide section of these new Mondello stages, the recipe is for an absolutely fantastic day of high action, high revving motorsport for everyone!
The event will have an overall winner award for Rallycars and a separate overall winner for award for Racing Buggies and each of the eleven classes will have individual winners based on each competitors fastest 5 stage times from the seven offered and trophies will be presented at the end of the day.
We would also like to invite historic and race cars to enter these events and if there is sufficient interest from specific groups ie Puntos, Fiestas, Ginettas or single seaters we will create additional classes as required. Details will be available on this website as we move closer to the event date.
Mondello Park security staff will be on attendance on the Friday night so you may leave vehicles parked in the pit area if necessary.
Despite the presence of security staff please ensure that all vehicles and trailer hitches are suitably locked as neither ourselves nor Mondello Park Ltd will be responsible for any loss or damage and that any risk involved is your own responsibility.
