Glowing brake rotors racing brake fluid ireland motul

Before we get into ‘What is the best racing brake fluid’ you need to first understand what is does and how it can cause a problem. On a race track your brakes have to work much harder than on the road and this makes them get extremely hot. When they get too hot, they can

Beginners guide to track days

Wednesday, 31 May 2017 by

So what exactly is a track day? Well, in short it’s a non-competitive, non timed, fun event that allows you to drive your own car on a proper race track. It enables petrol heads like you and I to push our cars to the limit in a safe environment, without endangering other road users or

Ahh the black art of tyre pressures! In motor racing circles, up at the sharp end where championships are at stake, tyre pressures are a closely guarded secret – just ask our co-founder, Stephen Kershaw. A few years ago when he was winning championships in Formula Vee he kept a little black book, not of

Time for something a bit different! We’re always looking for ways we can diversify improve on what we do here at Trackdays.ie and with that in mind the next even we’re running isn’t a trackday at all but a Dyno Day which will take place at STONE Motorsport on Saturday June 24th. What is a dyno

That Clio…

Sunday, 16 April 2017 by

You couldn’t help but have noticed Philip Gilmartin’s Martini liveried Clio at our last trackday at Mondello Park, it’s striking to say the least and that colour scheme really just makes an already racy looking car even more purposeful. The main thing you need to know about this Renaultsport Clio is that its had a heart transplant.

The McBennett Motorsport Supercharged K20 Elise If you’re at a track day with Pat Mcbennetts bright yellow 1997 Lotus Elise, it’s likely to be the fastest thing there that day, and that goes for virtually any day. What I love about this car is that like Alan Healy’s B18 ek Civic that we featured last week,

Top 11 Track Day Tyres

Monday, 03 April 2017 by

If you’re part of any track day or car enthusiast forum or group you’ll probably be aware there are three conversations that come up time and time again and they are as follows: What are the best track day tyres? What are the best track day brake pads? What is the best track day engine oil? The answer

A Self Built Civic

Wednesday, 29 March 2017 by

Regulars to our track days will be familiar with the sight of Alan Healy’s rapid silver ek Civic. If there was an award for most laps done at a track day I think Alan would be in with a chance of winning every time and the reason for that is that he’s always testing out something

If you’ve never been to Mondello Park you can get directions via Google maps here: Once you’re there, go in through gate 4 and turn immediately left, head towards the grandstand then just before it, turn right through the gate, veer right, across the race track then go through the first gate on your left in

Car Track Day Helmets

Tuesday, 28 February 2017 by

We frequently get asked questions about track day helmets and safety equipment in general, which is understandable because most car track day newcomers won’t have any of this stuff, so it’s an obvious concern. I think the perception, having watched any form of Motorsport is that you need the full Power Ranger suit, helmet, gloves, boots

Track Day Drivers Briefing

Monday, 23 January 2017 by

At the start of any car trackday there will always be a drivers briefing. It’s mandatory for anyone going on track as a driver or passenger to attend the briefing, even if you’ve done hundreds of track days or races before, you still need to attend as there may be some critical information, specific to

Basic Track Car Modifications

Thursday, 19 January 2017 by

“What Modifications does my car need to take part in a track day?”  That’s a question we get asked quite a lot here at Trackdays.ie…..so we thought we’d answer it! In short, not a lot. I think the assumption is that you need a bunch of performance and safety mods to bring your car on

Track Day Noise Limits & Noise Testing

Sunday, 11 December 2016 by

As with pretty much all Motorsport events, track days in Ireland have to conform to a pre-defined noise limit. The reason for this is to reduce environmental impact and to help keep Motorsport running. Local Authorities actually have the power to suppress any noise source deemed to be causing a nuisance – in other words, they

Track Day Etiquette & Overtaking Rules

Wednesday, 07 December 2016 by

Track days are unique in that they have their own set of rules and regulations, which are completely different from any other form of Motorsport or on-track activity, so we thought we’d write a quick post about track day etiquette and in-particular the rules around overtaking. A track day is a bit of a balancing act,

Before we get into what new stuff is coming down the line for the next track day let’s have a quick recap of TD01, the first track day in Ireland run by Trackdays.ie. Well, we had an absolute blast running it that’s for sure! Myself and Stephen and the rest of the Trackdays team would like to
