The Phoenix Park Motor Races, featuring the Dublin Grand Prix for Formula Racing cars, takes place this weekend in Europe’s largest public park.
This year’s race meeting celebrates the 80th Anniversary of the first Irish Grand Prix, and has attracted more than 120 entries for the 13 races as well as pursuit sprints and demonstrations for different classes of cars and motor cycles.
The action starts at 11.45 am on Saturday with the first of the sprint events, with the feature race, the Dublin Grand Prix, scheduled for 3.00 pm on Sunday.
Ann Stevens, the Clerk of the Course, said: “We are hoping for good weather at the weekend so that the public may enjoy what is a free show, which would not be possible without the assistance of the Office of Public Works and the management of Farmleigh.”
