Mondello Park is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Motorsport Ireland for the organisation and promotion of the Motorsport Ireland Circuit Racing Championships commencing with the 2021 racing season. The new Irish Championship Circuit Racing (ICCR) aims to return Irish circuit racing to its prime, with a talented committee appointed to ensure the success of the project.

I firmly believe that we have the expertise and personnel to provide the highest level of support, ensuring the strongest future for circuit racing in Ireland.”
John Naylor, President of Motorsport Ireland, said, “Our appointment of Mondello Park as Organisers and Promoters of the Motorsport Ireland Circuit Racing Championships has come after a long and extensive selection process. However, we believe that the future of circuit racing in Ireland is now in safe and very capable hands. Mondello Park submitted an exciting proposal and it was evident that they had carried out a huge amount of research into circuit racing, acquired the services of some very impressive personnel and made a notable financial commitment for the furtherance of our circuit racing championships. I look forward to working with Mondello Park, watching their revitalisation and growth of circuit racing in Ireland and, further developing a thriving sport for the benefit of our competitors, teams, marshals, officials, spectators and other stakeholders.”
