Motorsport Ireland announce 110th anniversary Phoenix Park Motor Races

Motorsport Ireland have today confirmed that the famous Phoenix Park Motor Races will take place on the 18th & 19th of August.  This will be the 110th anniversary of the event since the event first ran in 1903 and will also take place in the year of the 350th anniversary of Phoenix Park itself.


Ann Stevens, Clerk of the Course for the Phoenix Park Motor Races, said; “The Phoenix Park Motor Races are an iconic date in the Irish motorsport calendar.  There is a huge passion for the sport right across the country and it always manages to attract tens of thousands of spectators.  Many people will have seen the recent motorsport demonstration on the streets of Dublin but now they will have the chance to see competitive motorsport action on their doorstep at the historic Phoenix Park track and all for free.”
