The Race2race is a competition to discover Ireland’s next motor racing champion. After a hugely successful first year, where the inaugural Race2Race competition winner, John Greaney, went on to lift the ITCC Touring Car championship, we are back to once again offer one lucky and talented driver a life changing opportunity to become a fully funded racing driver in 2013. Drivers will have to prove their talent in a number of qualifying rounds. Contestants will be grouped into weight categories and pitted against no more than 16 other racers in a bid to progress to the Mondello Park shoot out competition where these finalists will go head to head in a mixture of on and off track tests to establish who has the right stuff to become the 2013 Race2Race Touring Car Driver!
The Prize: A fully funded season in the 2013 ITCC championship winning Honda Integra Type R. Simply show up on the test and race days and strap yourself into the professionally prepared race machine. The prize is valued in excess of €30,000 and can be the perfect springboard into an exciting motor racing career.
See below for more details.
