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.”
