The fastest racing circuit in Ireland since 1953...



There are seven car race meetings, four sprints and a single venue rally event per year. There are also a dozen track days per year.



Gearbox karts feature on the main circuit at three car meetings and non-gearbox karts have their own events on the Kirkistown West circuit.



We have at least two motorbike race meetings per year. There are also bicycle race meetings, duathlons, motorcycle track days and a race school for bikes.

Owned by the Five Hundred Motor Racing Club of Ireland Limited.

Fastest lap set by Dickie Lovell-Butt, driving a 1.5L supercharged Griffon Maserati, at 71.406 mph.

Total length 1.53 miles


Includes the amazing “Debtor’s Dip” left hander, which, for the brave, is flat in top!

Fastest Lap 50.782s!


Currently held by Philip Shields driving a GP2 Dallara.

"Enjoyed many a day here doing track days with Track Skills. Also been to car racing events which are superb and well run. The circuit is flat so you have a good very pretty much everywhere as the spectator areas are raised. Though it's always cold so bring a coat."

"What a fantastic race track. If you are a fan of roaring engines and the smell of burning oil then this is the place for you. There are lots of great viewing points and hangout areas and a nice cafe where you can grab a bite to eat and a coffee in between races."
