“A necessary addition to any enthusiast’s library”    - Bill Boddy

Phoenix Park… now there are two words that mean only one thing to generations of Dubliners with a passion for motor sport. They mean, of course, the annual motor racing event that takes place within the confines of this most unique of venues with its 1,752 acres surrounded by a seven-mile long wall.

Most of those going to the annual motor races there will know that in its glory days it was the home of the Irish International Grand Prix between 1929 and 1931 when the cream of Europe’s drivers raced there. Or that it enjoyed a golden period before the Second World War when the likes of the Siamese Prince ‘Bira’ raced there – and set the first 100 mph plus lap – as well as such legendary names of motor sport as Raymond Mays (creator of the ERA and BRM projects) and Chris Staniland who raced the fabulous Multi-Union there.

But Phoenix Park was also the birthplace of Irish motor sport in 1903 when Speed Trials were held there just two days after the famous Irish Gordon Bennett Race. Those Speed Trials produced a car traveling over the flying kilometer faster than ever before.
