There are not many 15-year-olds who have the honour of racing at Mondello Park, at blistering speeds of between 90 and 100 miles an hour. But Dublin schoolboy Neil Shanahan is one of the lucky ones. This young third-year student, who races a 100cc CRG Kart is now on the first rung of a ladder which he hopes will eventually takes him right up to Formula One. Neil, from Churchtown, is busy gearing up for next week’s two-day go kart festival at Mondello.

“I’m really looking forward to this. It’s the biggest meeting of the year. I will be racing against drivers of all ages from around the globe.”
