Following an extremely strong finish to the 2018 season, the ITCC have plans to develop the class further in 2019/2020. The class has new cars and drivers arriving on the grid this year from both north and south of the border, and it looks like a bumper year for the popular series.
With well over 20 signed up drivers for the 2019 season, the class have announced their new title sponsor for the 2019 season- Techit Support Dublin . Martin Duffy who is well known around the paddock as a competitor, is the owner of Techit and over the last 6 months he has worked to drive the ITCC class to where it is today- along with Brian Sexton, Philip Burdock and Andrew Armstrong. Techit has developed the ITCC website and provides technical assistance already to quite a few drivers and friends of ITCC from providing bespoke IT systems to IT consultancy for their business.
ITCC’s Brian Sexton said “We have an exciting season planned for 2019. It’s great to see new and old faces back on the grid. This surely underpins the attractiveness of the class to competitors and sponsors”. Talking about the new sponsorship deal, Brian said “Together with fresh interest from new drivers, it’s great to attract new sponsors like Techit Ltd. The plan is to put on a great show for the 2019 season”. Precision Windows Tinting and Graphics will also be involved this year again providing all the graphics and printing solutions for the drivers cars.
“Martin Duffy, Techit: “It’s great to be involved with Irish Motorsport and now to partner up with Ireland’s premier saloon car championship is exciting. I feel the commercial and marketing rewards for the company will justify our involvement with ITCC. Also been a competitor for several years in ITCC it’s great to give something back to the Class.
The season starts with round 1 &2 on the 30th of March in Kirkistown Race track.
Rounds 3 & 4 see the class head to Bishopscourt Race Circuit in Co. Down on May 11th/12th.
Rounds 5 & 6 are back at Kirkistown Race track on June 21st/22nd.
Rounds 7 & 8 are in Mondello Park on July 13th / 14th.
Rounds 9 & 10 are in Mondello Park also for the Leinster Trophy weekend on September 14th / 15th
There are ten races in total. This structure, allied to the new power to weight regulations makes the 2019 championship an attractive proposition for would be competitors.
