Irish Formula Vee, in conjunction with Dunlop Tyres and Total Oils are holding the Irish Formula Vee Festival at Mondello Park on 21/22 July 2012 with all proceeds from the weekend going to the Barretstown charity for children with serious illnesses.
Gate receipts 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 Barretstown. There will also be a barbeque on the Saturday night in the bar at Mondello Park and high speed passenger rides around the race track on both days. A Formula 1 race simulator will be trackside for the full weekend. For the younger fans, there will be a bouncy castle, clowns, face painting and balloon making on the Sunday to make sure this is a full family friendly event.
The fun filled weekend will see championship racing on both Saturday and Sunday from classes such as Formula Sheane, ITCC, Global Lights, Formula Ford, Historics and more; all culminating in the Formula Vee Festival final.
In keeping with the Vee theme, all air cooled vehicles will have free entry to the track over the weekend. There will also be a display of classic Volkswagen cars and buses supported by the Eircooled Club of Ireland. Entry for all others is €10 per car with all proceeds going to Barretstown.
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/events/151485991653941/).
