It was back to the FF1600 last weekend in Mondello Park, and with two races on the card and qualifying all in the one day it was going to be a action packed weekend from the off! Qualifying went well with it still being slightly damp around the track after rain during the evening.  We were changing setup right until the final seconds before leaving... [Read more...]

Like many of us it has always been an aim of mine to race in Mondello Park some day. The idea of this blog is to follow the journey of starting racing from scratch on a tight budget. Previous experience in motorsport for me consists of a few seasons in Autograss in the Carlow and Down I’ve raced rental karts with the D.I.T Karting Club. The aim... [Read more...]

Well it’s the middle of the summer, the Vee championship is in full swing and the rounds are coming thick and fast. Things have been going well, very well. After the Dnf at round 1I had four wins on the bounce coming up to the Vee festival. Ray Moore came out for this one and duly showed me up by beating me soundly in the championship round on Saturday.... [Read more...]

My Future Classics Debut- with Sophie Byrne.

Sophie Xr2

I have to begin by saying that my debut in the Future Classics class at the Vee Festival (supporting the amazing Lauralynn charity,) was an unexpected venture which I was certainly unprepared for but unbelievable. The rollercoaster began with driving my adorable Fiesta XR2 for the first time on the Friday before the event, with racing on Sunday only... [Read more...]

It’s been about two years since I’ve driven a Formula Sheane but last week Motorsport.ie’s Leo Nulty approached me and asked would I be interested in driving his Formula Sheane at the weekend at the Dunlop Formula Vee Festival. So as usual with last minute things it was a bit of a rush on Friday morning before testing we had to change... [Read more...]

It’s unusual to be making only the first trip of the year to Kirkistown at the end of June but that’s the way the calendar worked out this year so on the longest day of the year I was headed north. Having been unable to secure a lift on the Saturday morning it was out with the bike for a 7am start. Good time was made despite a stop for fuel near... [Read more...]

What a brilliant weekends racing as the Formula Ford Festival was revived in Mondello with a trophy named after one of the all-time greats of Irish motorsport; Vivian Daly. I grew up watching Vivian racing Ffords and Opels and can still remember his 2FM, Abrakebabra, and XtraVision sponsored cars racing for wins at Mondello and Phoenix Park. I sat on... [Read more...]

Fresh off the plane from Spain I was picked up in the truck on Friday afternoon for the long enough drive to Bishopscourt. I had a good feed at lunchtime as I figured there would be limited options for eating once we crossed the border, Holstein and O’Brien slug it out for ITCC honours. plus the fact I had very little sterling didn’t help matters.... [Read more...]

Coming into this weekend we were confident, having had a strong performance in Kirkistown the previous week after a long 10 week absence from the seat- unlike most of the drivers on the FF1600 grid. Still trying to gain back lost seat time this season! With the Champion of Mondello series continuing on, we had round 3&4 on Saturday with qualifying... [Read more...]

carlow rally

Well, the second round of my Dunlop Championship campaign took place at the Carlow Stages Rally on May 11th. However there was quite an unexpected change in the lead up to the event, with the purchase of my new car! I decided to take the plunge in April, and have now made the move to Class 3, in a Honda Civic Type R. Luckily, I had the opportunity to... [Read more...]
