ABOUT THE IRX
Rallycross was invented by Robert Reed, who was the producer on ITV’s World of Sport programme at the time. The first event took place at Lydden Hill on 4 February back in 1967, where it quickly became a staple of Saturday afternoon sports in the UK with both ITV and BBC broadcasting rallycross. The popularity of rallycross soon spread, with the first event on the European mainland taking place in Holland in 1969, with the Scandinavian rallycross debut taking place in Sweden two years later.
The Irish Rallycross Championship was formed in 1982 some 15 Years after the first Rallycross Event in Lydden Hill. Since then the championship and our main track Mondello Park have become one of the most recognised in the world. Mondello Park became the home of Irish Rallycross and also attracted European Championship level events in the early 90’s giving the sport a large fan base in the country.
