Irish Rallycross is go after an entry boost
The Irish Rallycross Championship has secured enough entries for the first round of the series to be run at Mondello Park next month.
Mondello Park would have been forced to cancel the season opener and possibly the two remaining rallycross dates at the venue in 2016, if a total of 50 entries hadn’t been achieved by the closing date.
Following a campaign to boost entries by the Irish Rallycross organising committee, the minimum number of drivers required was surpassed in advance of the closing date, and organisers are anticipating a number of late entries in the lead up to the event.
“It is a tribute to all our regular supporters in the way they have taken responsibility to get the numbers in and ensure a very positive start to the 2016 championship,” said Motorsport Ireland rallycross committee chairman, John Dowling. “Regular competitor Peter Mcgarry has been the catalyst for this, supported by Leo Nulty, Colin Dowling and a big effort from Jenny Senior at Mondello Park. Currently we have just shy of 60 cars entered for the first round. It gives us a great boost to start the season. We can look forward with confidence and excitement to the year ahead.”
