Vee winner Blackburn crosses the line!
It was great to have the season starting back at its early St Patrick’s weekend slot after a few years of April beginnings, but there was nothing spring like about the mid March weather which was damp and gloomy. The not too hectic schedule saw me arriving just after ten having dispatched my F1 duties early following the Australian GP. Qualifying... [Read more...]

Trevor Delaney drove superbly to win the 2013 Dunlop Formula Vee Festival
The Dunlop Formula Vee Festival was the highlight of the season at Mondello Park last year and was shaping up to emulate that feat for this year. Brilliant weather and even better racing were the order of the day. This year all proceeds from the event will go to the LauraLynn Foundation and as thing s stand it looks like we may exceed the total raised... [Read more...]

If this one doesn't make you laugh, there's something wrong with you!
Cregor Elliot is one of the characters of Irish Motorsport. For quite a few years now, he has been shooting and commentating on his own inimitable coverage of Irish Formula Vee, amongst other things. This weeks video is an absolute cracker. During one of the early LMC Anglesey meetings, Cregor borrowed a moped to go down to turn one and film some action.... [Read more...]

Philip Shields took two impressive Libre wins!
Due to crossed wires I was still fast asleep when JD rang to say he was 2 minutes away to pick me up for the May meeting at Kirky but everything was ready to go, so I grabbed my camera bag and we were on our way. I’ve been up the north so much this month that I fully expect to get a poll tax bill any day soon, and it was another beautiful morning... [Read more...]

Cregor and Con enjoyed their trip north!
Ah isn’t it just great that racing is back. This year saw a later start in the year than most recent times this is probably a good thing given the weather in Ireland the past few weeks. Con Connolly picked me up at 6am (I’d say bright and early but it was still dark) for the drive to Kirkistown that went through frost glistening fields and... [Read more...]

The longest short race ever!
The longest short race ever! Irish Formula Vee Race, Anglesey Wales, 4 July 2009 The Irish Vees visited Anglesey for a double header in July ’09 and Saturdays race was bizarre to say the least. Officially it was one of the shortest races I’ve ever seen while unofficially one of the longest due to rain, and incidents up at Radar corner. The... [Read more...]

Donington Park was a magical place to me
I could see the huge benefits of Youtube when it started in 2005 and was quick to sign up but was initially hampered by the length of time it took to process videos ( in ’05 it would take all night to process a short film), and dial up internet, which when thinking back I wonder how anything atall was uploaded to the internet as it was so slow. By... [Read more...]

This video has hit over a staggering half million views on YouTube!
Today’s offering is my most famous video, the so-called ‘Seagull Video’ It hails from the Saturday Formula Vee race of the Phoenix Park Races in 2007, and has a bit of everything really being high on comedy, drama, along with being on first glance unbelievable. What initially appears to be a car with a seagull on the front spreading... [Read more...]
