So this weekend is the one where 98% of Northern Irelands population want to be anywhere in the world apart from at home. With that in mind, we took the opportunity to escape to foreign lands aswell and partake in a little motorsport, and where better than Mondello Park. Continue reading
Sitting down to write this piece has taken a while, workload has been pretty serious at the workshop and finding the time to put pen to paper was harder than we thought it would be. Not only that, but where on earth do we begin to describe how the weekend panned out …..
Still not entirely sure on where to begin, I guess we will start at Belfast Docks, sitting alongside a beautiful 1932 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud was a great start to our journey. A few cheeky beverages, a little food and with a few other like minded passengers, the banter continued into the small hours. When we finally climbed into our duvets it felt like only a few minutes passed before the tannoys went off and we were back in the saddle for the trip down through England. Continue reading
Sorry for the delay folks, it’s all been a bit mad at Corry Motorsport World HQ.

If you happened to read the Bishopscourt Race Report, you will know of the trials and tribulations involved in getting the Sprite ready for Wills first outing and the final result being a sheered hub.

Leo works very hard to stay on top of everything happening in Irish motorsport. Not only a very pleasant chap, but a very knowledgeable one too with an extensive archive of info stored away in that head of his.
We’ll stop fluffing his ego now and give you the link to his latest coverage of the races at Bishopscourt.
The HRCA.ie guys came up to Bishopscourt Race Circuit for the third race of their season. This would be the first race for Will and 765BXN.
All plans were in place, race license had been obtained and a test day was booked at Kirkistown on the 4th May. Will Snr took the car out first and managed quite a few solid laps as he calibrated to the car, but when he came in for driver swap the car mysteriously cut out. New rotor arm, distributor cap, leads, plugs and a lot of head scratching later it still didn’t want to fire. With time running out the car was bundled onto the trailer and taken home.

We all know that feeling. You’ve just been out Christmas shopping for the wife and kids, managed to get everything you want, but along the way decided to treat yourself. You arrive home with a grin from ear to ear, knowing you have just purchased the best present to yourself, ever, despite emptying your bank account.
The acid has worked wonders and give us the blank slate we need to further develop the car. As you can see from the photos, she is truly a bare shell once again. Continue reading
