ITCC ready for 2014
December 18, 2013 by ITCC
The Yokohama Irish Touring Car Championship has today announced it’s plans for the 2014 season. The season will be held over 6 weekends at Mondello Park with the popular Bishopscourt Event returning in its traditional May slot. Full calendar below
- March 16th Mondello Park National Circuit
- April 13th Mondello Park National Circuit
- May 10/11th Bishopscourt
- June 7/8th Mondello Park International Circuit
- July 12/13th Mondello Park National Circuit (Vee Festival)
- Sept 20/21 Mondello Park International Circuit (Leinster Trophy Meeting)
In a bid to reduce costs championship registration has been reduced to €250 which includes all signage and car numbers for the season
Also reduced are the race entry fees at Mondello Park which now stand at a guaranteed €235 for each of the double header meetings. The Bishopscourt event is expected to have an entry fee of £220.
ITCC organisers are also hopeful of offering significant reductions elsewhere for their competitors, news of which will be released in due course.
Despite all these cost savings there is no reduction in the level of publicity, all 5 Mondello Park events will be broadcast live in High Definition on Mondello.tv around the world.
On circuit action should be as exciting as ever with some returning faces in new machinery. Reigning champion Erik Holstein returns but after an easy championship stroll in 2013 he will have some real opposition in 2014 with class returnee Brian Fitzpatrick the most likely of contenders behind the wheel of his newly acquired European Touring Car Spec Seat Supercopa. Series organiser Brian Sexton will be one to watch also in his BTCC inspired Toyota Altezza which has undergone some major fettling by GripFab Motorsport. 2012 champion Phil Brennan is also back on circuit in his championship winning BMW M3 after taking a year long sabbatical in 2013. Another to return is Philip Burdock in a self built Integra while previous front runner and 2013 Leinster Trophy winner Barry Rabbitt might make an appearance at some stage.
