BREAKING NEWS- O’Hara in last minute Formula Sheane deal!
April 10, 2014 by Dave Mint
With just a couple of days to go to the opening round of the Formula Sheane championship, it has been revealed that 2013 Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of the Year Kevin O’Hara will challenge for the Champion of Mondello series in the Motorsport.ie car which Barry Rabbitt used to clinch the prestigious Leinster Trophy last year.
“ I have not got a full time drive at the minute”, said the FF1600 star, “and was planning to do the Trophy races in my Ford, so the timing is perfect. The car is unraced since it won the Leinster Trophy last year so I have no excuses!”
Motorsport.ie’s Leo Nulty said “ The car is sitting since the big win last year, it hasn’t sold- Kevin’s pace and commitment are unquestioned and his family team LOH Motorsport run front running cars so the partnership makes sense for everyone! With this package, I would be surprised if we don’t win races and challenge for the title!”
Formula Sheane single seater race cars are built by Sheane Engineering in Wicklow and are powered by a 160bhp 16v engine, and a 5 speed Gearbox. They are capable of lapping the 2km Mondello National Circuit in 57 seconds.
O’Hara will be supported by Motorsport.ie, Mondello Corporate Events Centre and North Kildare Chamber and his first two races will be streamed live on www.mondello.tv on Sunday!
