Mondello Park has reached an agreement with Motorsport Ireland for the organisation and promotion of the Irish Circuit Racing Championships for an initial five-year period, commencing with the 2021 season.

Following the submission of an extensive proposal by Mondello Park in response to an expression of interest document issued by Motorsport Ireland, the Co Kildare circuit has been selected as its preferred partner. 

Mondello Park are hoping that racing will return to the venue with a two-day meeting on 12 and 13 June and have provisionally announced four other weekends in July, August, September and October, subject to government guidelines.

Each event will see a selection of classes from the Irish Circuit Racing Championship compete over the weekend, with additional Guest Championships, Series and Trophy races still to be announced.

"We are privileged and honoured to be appointed as the new organisers and promoters of the Motorsport Ireland Circuit Racing Championships," said managing director of Mondello Park Roddy Greene.

"I firmly believe that we have the expertise and personnel to provide the highest level of support, ensuring the strongest future for circuit racing in Ireland.

"Whilst still negotiating with Motorsport Ireland, we have been extremely busy behind the scenes in making sure our plans are ready to go. Now that we have reached agreement, further details of our exciting plans for the 2021 season and beyond will be released in the coming days and weeks."
