Mondello Park appointed as Organisers and Promoters of the Irish Rallycross Championship
Mondello Park is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Motorsport Ireland for the organisation and promotion of the PartsForCars Irish Rallycross Championship for an initial five year period commencing with the forthcoming 2022 season.
Commenting on the appointment, Managing Director of Mondello Park, Roddy Greene said, “Rallycross has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years with World RX re-invigorating a sport made specifically for TV spectators. Irish rallycross has struggled over the last few years, but we hope that our investment will allow competitors, spectators and officials to once again to show the reason why rallycross is one of the most intense and high octane spectacles in motorsport.”
Newly elected Motorsport Ireland President Aiden Harper stated that “This is a very exciting time for Rallycross in Ireland, and with this new dawn the future is very attractive and bright”
Alongside his current role in ICCR, Mondello have expanded Drew Furlong’s remit to manage the Irish Rallycross Championship project. Furlong’s experience in organising all of the UK rounds of World RX at both Lydden Hill and Silverstone and his long involvement with the British Rallycross Championship will prove invaluable in this new venture.
Mondello has also once again turned to Loud By Design who assisted Mondello in the successful promotion of the ICCR in 2021. The Loud By Design team boasts some of the most experienced and talented promoters, social media managers, videographers and photographers in motorsport and their team are incredibly excited to sink their teeth into the promotion of the Irish Rallycross Championship in 2022.
Time will be of the essence as the first event of the new Championship will take place at Mondello on 13th February in just over 2 weeks’ time. The full calendar will see the Irish Championship stand alongside its British counterpart when both championships will entertain the expected crowds on the Bank Holiday weekend of 4/5 June. Expect fireworks when the largest grid of fire-breathing monster Supercars ever assembled at Mondello roar off the grid.
