Hey everyone

Since my victory at the Holmpatrick Trophy at Mondello there hasn’t been much time before the Irish Formula Ford Festival for the prestigious Martin Donnelly Trophy! With everyone eager to win the prestigious trophy there was some tough competition on the entry list to spice things up for a great final! On the entry list very fast drivers such as Noel Robinson, Patrick McKenna, John Ferguson and a very quick English driver Oliver White made a rare appearance to make ...

Not a bad weekend

Posted by Jonny McMullan on October 28, 2013 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog, it’s been a hectic few weeks between the last championship rounds at Kirkistown and the Leinster Trophy race weekend!

To summarize- the last day at Kirkistown we were quick in testing on the Friday but unfortunately a carburettor issue in qualifying made it flood through the chicane, loosing me a chunk of time down the back straight! Fortunately we qualified well enough for p5 on the grid but I was confident for the races if w...

Hi again, hope you’s all are well! Since the last kirkistown meeting I took part in the Formula Vee Festival Meeting for the next round off the Irish Formula Ford 1600 Championship. Myself, dad and John Harris headed down on the Thursday night late on so we would be there for testing for the first session on the Friday.

Friday went good getting the car set up for the track as it would be completely different than Kirkistown as its a lot more technical and there are more st...

This season is by far the most competitive Formula Ford grid I have raced in here in Ireland since my first car race in 2009! For the third season we have been driving the NI Radiator Services Mondiale 89s with John Harris running me.

Up to now we have had a pretty up and down season, the pace has been there but the luck hasn’t been on my side that much.

Going into the June meeting after three podiums, a fourth, a fifth and a DNF we were sitting second in the...

After a long winter trying to find a seat for this year unfortunately due to our budget we couldnt get a deal put together after the fantastic deals that were offered from many teams. To keep our hand in this year I will be contesting the Northern Ireland Formula Ford 1600 Championship along with the first round of the Superseries at Kirkistown on the 28th April.

Round one and two of the championship kicked off last weekend at Kirkistown and it was a brilliant start to the year from me...

Instead of the usual 89s Mondiale that we used all year in the Northern Ireland Championship, championship of Brands and the Formula Ford Festival we changed machinery for this weekend to the Ray GR09 with Athgoe Racing.

I arrived at Silverstone on the Wednesday evening ready for the first day of testing on the Thursday. I woke up to a miserable wet...

I have just competed in the prestigious 40th anniversary of the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch near Kent. We have been in England since Thursday, and we were testing on circuit the Thursday and Friday before the race weekend itself! Thursday and Friday were pretty good days testing with a few issues with the car on the Thursday but we got them sorted for Friday! The major problem with the car was understeer but a lot of adjustments sorted that problem out and when we put new tyres on...

I competed in the Martin Donnelly Trophy Race on Saturday at Kirkistown. We were testing on Friday and were joint quickest all day. Saturday morning in qualifying we qualified 2nd on the grid for our heat 0.2 off pole position. At the start of the heat we had a missfire in the car but thankfully it cleared itself out after two laps. We ended up finishing third in the race with a race long battle with Noel Dunne the eventual winner and John Ferguson. For the final the grid wa...
