Mondello Modified Live - 21 April 2013 - Mondello Park, Naas


Recommended Posts

The Irish Modified Car Scene will have a new show for 2013 with the arrival of Mondello Modified Live. The new event will take place on Sunday April 21st and will be a major boost to the Irish Modified Car Scene. The event will showcase the best of Ireland's modified car culture, along with a full days live entertainment on the Mondello Park track.


Mondello Modified Live is an event for owners of European, Japanese & American cars to display their vehicles. The show will feature displays by owners clubs, websites and individuals, as well as track action, including the first round of the new Irish Drift Championship, which is set to replace the Prodrift Series as the premier Irish Drifting championship.


The circuit will be kept busy for most of the day with qualifying and the finals of the opening round of the Irish Drift Championship. The drifters will share the track with round two of the Irish time-Attack Series, which for the first time will run in an anti-clockwise direction between drift sessions. When the competitive action takes a break, the track will continue to be busy as owners clubs and individuals will have the opportunity to take to the track and demonstrate the performance of their vehicles, in one of the twenty minute 'Track Day' sessions available.


At the April 21st event, the Show & Shine competition will play a big part in proceedings as the organisers search for Ireland's best presented Modified Cars. The competition will have more than €500 worth of prizes up for grabs and the show cars will have their own dedicated area for the first time. With the help of 'Autoglym' the entrants will be whittled down to a short list for closer inspection, before the overall winner is announced.


Mondello Modified Live will follow the venues popular show format of mixing live action and static displays and will be the biggest Modified Car event of the year outside of September’s Jap-Fest. Additional attractions will be announced over the coming weeks.


Display space is limited and entries for clubs, organisations and individual exhibitors and traders are now being taken.

Went to this the last few years Jim, every scrote in world is there; Mondello allows these idiots get intoxicated via bringing a few cans in the car! Last time (2011 I think) I was there a drunken mess fell against my passenger door and took a chip down to the metal.


Last year, a guys TypeR was stolen from the car park, rallied up in Dublin and burnt out


Last year too at a Drift day in Mondello, employees out of ** crash repairs (Sponsors of Brendan Stone) got intoxicated in the PITS!! , exposing themselves , with young kids and family's walking around

Then one of the drunken idiots taught it would be a good Idea to dance on the roof of a random R32 in the carpark, urinate on it , smash the windscreen etc


The guy who owned the R32 was not too pleased to say the least, sure its Mondello; ** crash repairs are still allowed in and around the place!


No time for the place to be honest, until they change their views on this behavior and allowing people get intoxicated never mind they are underage scrotes


I never actually heard what happen to the poor guy who owned the R32, she was stunning!

That's shocking Carlo, I hadn't heard any of that before. The pages and pages of rules would put me off anyways, I was a bit concerned about the 'one person solely responsible for everyone in the club' bit, I understand why they're saying it now though! Bottom line, car shows and drink don't mix - we've had similar problems up here with an event where they weren't selling drink (as you need a licence for that) but they were selling raffle tickets, and each ticket won a beer lol...inventive way of getting round the law. Turned into a nightmare though, it was in a dodgy part of Belfast and there were similar incidents - boys falling onto show cars, or standing too close to the drifting/diffing area (couple of people got clipped and ended up in hospital) etc. Not worth the risk.
