MINI IRELAND SPONSOR MINI MAGIC AT COUNTY LOUTH’S WHITE RIVER PARK ON SEPTEMBER 15
MINI Magic – Ireland’s MINI track day and meet – sponsored by MINI Ireland is back on September 15, this time at White River Park between Dundalk and Drogheda in a celebration of 60 years of an icon.
At MINI Ireland’s Dublin headquarters, Event Director William Neill revealed the popular track day event is returning but at a central location for 2019, just off the M1.
“The support of the car manufacture is a major announcement, but also to have MINI support MINI Magic makes for a great relationship at the new location. Naturally there couldn’t be a better time for owners of these classic cars to gather with the 60th anniversary of an important motoring icon,” said Neill.
“Our 2018 edition took place in Galway and thanks to the support we received there we are able to put the show on the road and spread MINI Magic. We invite owners of all MINI models to be part of the day, whether their car is a show and shine example, a daily runner or strictly for the track. Classic and modern are both welcome alongside the many variants.”
Austin Behan, General Manager MINI Ireland added: “MINI Magic is a celebration of the brand with fans showcasing both classic and new models through a memorable and unique experience. We are delighted to support this event, to see so many fans who love the brand coming together for a meaningful experience”.
TRACK ENTRY DETAILS
The track entry spaces – available online in advance only – are open to eligible road and track cars with the main requirements an Irish or UK driving license and a track day helmet, which can be hired from White River Park’s on-site store.
“We have made it as easy as possible to allow owners time to enjoy their car on track,’” Neill points out. “And with the track’s nature, both standard Mini owners and track cars will not look out of place. It is not a race or timed and cars will be started at intervals and, as standard at track days, passing will not be permitted on corners to keep a fun element to proceedings over competition. It is about time on track and, for those who visit, an opportunity to view history of the car on the move.”
The entry fee for on track remains the same as 2018 at a cost-effective €95 (euro) – making it the least expensive full day track in Ireland. A front seat passenger is permitted with dual entries accepted.
MEET ENTRY DETAILS
Those who visit the meet in their MINI can enter on the day and save on general admission with €10 (euro) covering the driver and up to two passengers with access to a track viewing area, an event programme and a chance to win spot prizes.
