500 Motor Racing Club of Ireland
The 500 Motor Racing Club of Ireland is the only club in the UK to own and operate its own circuit. And currently the only Club in Northern Ireland organising Race Meetings with seven dates listed for Kirkistown in 2017. These Meetings cater for all classes popular in the Province at this time, and also feature rounds of all the Motorsport Ireland National Championships, as well as visiting Championships from GB including, this year, the Historic FF2000 series in Aril and the ‘National’ FF1600 Championship in June.
The Dawson-WAM- backed ANICC Northern Ireland Formula Ford 1600 Championship, which is based at, and run from, Kirkistown is now the richest FF series in the UK with a prize fund of £10,000. Rounds will be run at all Krkistown meetings this year apart from October when the prestigious Martin DonnellyTrophy meeting takes centre stage.
The Club also hosts three rounds of the ANICC Sprint Championship while the MSA British Sprint Championship visits in August. The club also runs a number of Kart Races.
The Club organises general test days, and hires out the circuit to other Clubs and motoring bodies.
