While the Irish Rallycross Championship’s continued use of Mondello Park looks uncertain, the series has introduced an additional doubleheader weekend into its 2016 calendar.
The IRX series will join the BTRDA Clubmans Rallycross Championship at Pembrey in South Wales on July 2/3. Several Irish drivers have competed in the BTRDA series over the last two years, most regularly at the venue near Llanelli.
BTRDA championship committee member John Rook said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to announce the tie up with Irish Rallycross at rounds four and five at Pembrey Circuit.
“This partnership makes sense. The regulations are very similar and, for two seasons, the Irish drivers have supported the BTRDA Championship.
“This is extremely exciting and something we have been working on for quite a while. Early signs indicate around 30 to 40 Irish drivers could travel to Pembrey which would be a great boost.”
