After taking a break in 2015, Irish Formula Vee is back with the hugely successful Total Lubricants Formula Vee Festival in aid of LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
Following on from the success of the 2012 to 2014 events where almost €45,000 was raised for charity, the 2016 event will take place at Mondello Park on July 9/10 with all proceeds from the weekend going to the LauraLynn Children’s Hospice for children with life limiting conditions.
Since its inception in 2012, this event has grown to be the largest circuit racing event on the Mondello Park calendar with over 5000 people attending each Festival.
Gate receipts, programme ads and programme sales along with the proceeds of a charity auction (MC Leo Nulty of motorsport.ie fame) on Saturday night will see funds going directly to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice. In addition to the auction, there will be a barbeque on the Saturday night in the bar at Mondello Park. For the younger fans, there will be bouncy castles, clowns, face painting and balloon making on the Sunday to make sure this is a full family friendly event. The paddock will host an array of supercars, motorbikes, classic cars and maybe a Formula 1 car.
The fun filled weekend will see championship racing on both Saturday and Sunday from classes such as Formula Libre, ASK Supercars, ITCC, Ford Fiestas, Micks Garage Future Classics and more; all culminating in the Formula Vee Festival final on Sunday afternoon.
In keeping with the Formula Vee theme, all air cooled vehicles will have free entry to the track over the weekend. Entry for all others is €10 per car with all proceeds going to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.
If you would like to help out or enquire about static displays, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Irish Formula Vee group through the website. There is also a link to the event on Facebook: (https://www.facebook.com/FormulaVeeFestival).
