M is for Mondello


Ireland’s famous race circuit Mondello is continuing its strong ties and ongoing partnership with BMW Ireland through its BMW Driving Experience Powered by M.

BMW have worked closely with Mondello Park for a number of years, providing the official Safety and Course cars in use for all race meetings. They also provide the circuit with a BMW S1000 RR superbike that is used as a Safety Bike for the Masters Superbike Championship. It’s also used by the lead instructor on motorcycle track days.

The new Mondello Park Driving Experience Fleet has been bolstered by two MINI Cooper S training cars, two BMW M2 Coupé’s and two BMW M4 Coupé’s. Customers get to drive the Mini Cooper S training car followed by the BMW M2 Coupé and the BMW M4 Coupé.

Pricing for the BMW Driving Experience Powered by M starts at €179. The “BMW Ultimate Driving Experience” is priced at €299.

Modello says the age breakdown of drivers varies, although for the BMW Driving Experience it attracts an older demographic of 30 plus. This is in keeping with potential high end BMW customers.

More details are on Mondello’s website.
