Our first 2 championship races took place in Mondello on Sunday 14th. While our numbers were not so big 9 starters was a respectable start to the season. The race was as usual competitive and exciting.
At the sharp end Richard Kearney started 2019 as he finished 2018 in front, just, of pole sitter Brian Hearty in the first race. Newcomer Brian Egan was a very creditable third on his first outing, just beating Paul McLoughlin to the line after a tough battle.
Sean Hynes was next up having endured a character building couple of days preparing his car, which has lain idle since 2014. Derek Roddy was next up, a man to watch out for in the future. He is after all Brian Hearty's nephew.
James Sunderland was the next finisher surviving an earlier quick spin ahead of newcomer Mark Carvill. Mark finished both races strongly despite not having tested or driven the track previously.
In the second race Brian Hearty led all the way from pole position ahead of Richard Kearney with Paul McLouglin taking a strong third from Brian Egan. Sean Hynes and James Sunderland had a great dice with Sean just ahead at the flag. Derek Roddy was next up from Mark Carvill.
Keith Stafford suffered cruel luck in both races shearing a clutch disc in race 1 and a cracked cylinder in race 2.
Next up is Bishopscourt and we expect a few extra entries from Enda O'Connor, Niall O'Flynn, Ray McKenna, John Linnane and Chris McCabe.

Hi. Apologies for the lack of activity on our website for the past couple of years.
That's all going to change hopefully with Philip Sheane keeping us up to date in future.
Philip is a 17-year-old fifth year student at Colaiste Chill Mhantain, younger brother of triple Formula Sheane Championship winner Kevin Sheane.
Philip started his own motorsport career in Mud Plugging and Midget Car Racing, winning most of his races in Midgets. He hopes to manage a full season in Formula Vee in 2019, finances permitting. He started his first circuit race at the Formula Vee Festival this year in a ‘Pre-85’ self-prepared car earning the ‘Driver of the Weekend’ award despite it being his first outing in Mondello. Definitely a man to watch in the future.

This weekend Mondello Park Hosted the latest rounds of the Formula Sheane Championship at the formula vee festival. Going into these two races it was the 2017 Champion Dave Parks who was holding the current championship lead followed by Brian Hearty.

Qualifying was on an action packed circuit which was unusually slippery for a dry day in mondello park. None the less it was Dave Parks who managed to set the quickest lap at the start of the session followed extremely close by Brian Hearty and Richard Kearney. As the session went on It seemed like Parks was going to keep pole until Brian Hearty put in an incredible lap to take pole for race one followed by Dave Parks, Richard Kearney, Martin Rafferty, John Ross Delahunt, James Sunderland, Keith Stafford and Leslie shaw.

Race one began early on sunday morning, the cars lined up on the grid and the tension could have been cut with a knife! The 5 second board came up and the lights went out, Parks got the Jump on Hearty from the line and lead into turn one, followed closely by Richard Kearney and Martin Rafferty who was showing great pace in his first outing of the year.

As the race progressed Parks extended his lead as Kearney and Hearty Battled for second place. Slightly Further back the grid leslie shaw, John Ross Delahunt, Keith Stafford and james sunderland battled it out, the final result of race one was David parks, Brian Hearty, Richard Kearney, Martin Rafferty, Leslie Shaw, John Ross Delahunt, James Sunderland and keith stafford who had an unfortunate DNF

Race two began late on sunday evening and this time it was Dave Parks who started on pole position Alongside him was Brian Hearty, the lights went out and Brian Hearty got the jump on Dave Parks followed nose to gearbox by Richard Kearney. As the cars came into the final turn to complete the first lap Parks sold Brian Hearty a dummy and passed him down the inside. Leslie shaw started at the back of the grid and made a huge push to climb up to the front. Richard kearney pulled off an incredible move to get past Brian Hearty but devastatingly for Richard his throttle cable broke near the end of the race. It was David Parks who took the win in race two, ending a perfect weekend for him and extending his championship lead. Followed closely by Brian Hearty, Martin Rafferty who took his first podium position!, James sunderland, Leslie shaw and John Ross Delahunt. Keith stafford and Richard Kearney both had to retire from the race due to mechanical faults.

A huge thanks from all of the formula sheane class to formula vee for an amazing weekend with some great races and good banter. Formula sheane without a doubt provided some of the best racing of the weekend. Onwards now to the next race weekend! well done to all.
