Trackdays.ie are back with another of their extremely popular car track days at Mondello Park on Monday 20th of March. Following their last two sell-out days, the next track day will run to a similar format on the 2.2-mile full international circuit at Mondello. The event runs an ‘open’ pit lane which means that drivers taking part can come and go on track whenever they like, for as long as they like, which makes for an easy-going atmosphere.
Where Trackdays.ie events differ from other track days is in the details. The company is run by experienced racers, Stephen Kershaw and Rob King who bring a wealth of Motorsport knowledge with them. Their goal is to turn the humble track day into an experience not to be forgotten. With that in mind their track days include all sorts of benefits and add-ons you wouldn’t normally expect find such as free lunch and all day refreshments, free tuition from their team of championship-winning racing drivers-cum-instructors, professional photography by brianwalshphotos.com – seriously, go check out his work, it’s pretty impressive. They also have partnerships with big brands like Mobil 1 who usually come to the party with really cool merchandise to give away. The icing on the cake though has to be the DIY crisp sambo’s! On top of all this, the trackdays.ie website is fast becoming the go-to resource for track day related info and well worth a browse around.
Who’s it For?
Anyone with an ounce of petrol running through their veins really. Complete beginners and experienced track day veterans are catered for. A common misconception is that you need a fast or flashy car to take part – not so. Pretty much any car in good roadworthy condition can take part without the need for any modifications.
No car? No worries!
If you don’t have a car but really fancy having a go, you might be interested in their Arrive & Drive Packages. The car you’d be driving is the Trackdays.ie Ek Honda Civic which is a fully prepared, ex-Future Classics race car. It’s fitted with a tuned D15B SOHC VTEC engine producing just over 130bhp. That might not sound a lot, but combined with its light weight stripped out interior, uprated brakes and suspension and sticky track tyres it’s certainly quick! As you’d expect with a race car the Trackdays.ie Civic is fitted with all the necessary safety equipment such as multi-point weld-in roll cage, Bucket seats, 6 point safety harnesses and plumbed-in fire extinguisher.
