Great that Celtic Challenge April 2020 has had significant coverage in the British specialist press, with considerable interest from potential competitors with both pre and post-war cars. All the talk of Kirkistown and Bishopscourt circuits had Rally Director Fred rummaging through his old programme collection and murmuring about E-Types, MGBs, Sunbeam Rapiers and the like….⠀
⠀
As a result, we reconsidered our original decision to make the event for vintage machinery only and it will now be open to all cars of a type built before 31 December 1969, with completely separate Vintage and Classic categories and distinct classifications and awards. ⠀
⠀
You can read more details about this fantastic event in the 'Old Stager' write up on the news section of our website (link in bio).⠀

Day 5 of championship standings week and today we will look at Max Marzorati. 
Max runs selected rounds of the National Championship with Team DOLAN due to calendar conflicts with the Champion of Brands series. 
Here are Max's thoughts heading into the final stages of the season. "After running a number of selected races with Team Dolan I feel I am constantly improving. Sadly, due to the Champion of Brands series coinciding with many national rounds I have been unable to commit to a full national programme. I am however wanting to improve my current championship standings next time out and would like to thank my title sponsor Autoworld for their support this year"

Day 4 of championship standings week and today we look at Adam Quartermaine who currently leads the National Club championship standings. 
Adam shared a garage with Team DOLAN at last years Walter Hayes Trophy and committed to a number of National Championship races for 2019!

Here are Adam's thoughts ahead of the rest of the season. "I'm loving my time with Team Dolan and in the National championship. The FF1600 series has always been competitive and to be leading the club championship means a lot. Heading into the final stages of this year the goal is to win the club championship.  I would like to thank  Sprinklr for supporting my journey." #TeamDOLAN #30yearsachamp #Champs #1989 #Kirkistown #FF1600 #BernardDolan #Ross11 #Adam7 #Morgan88 #Jamie89 #Max81

Big thanks to @valleymotorsportpromotions for writing about how my season in the @brsccff1600nat with @teamdolan1600 is going so far. 
Day 3 of championship standings week and today we are looking at Morgan Quinn Racing! 
Morgan currently stands at the top of the Rookie Championship standings with 358 points! Morgan also sits ninth in the overall championship standings with 125 points! 
Here are Morgan's thoughts heading into the second half of the championship! "Moving from coupe / sports cars to single seaters was a big desicion but one worth doing. FF1600 is extremely competitive and with Formula Fords you have to understand set up changes and get involved with the cars characteristics. Now that we are in the second stage of the season my main aim is to win the Rookie Championship and improve my overall championship standings. I would like to thank Team Dolan in their unwavering support and guidance and to my backers Valley Motorsport Promotion's." #TeamDOLAN #30yearsachamp #Champs #1989 #Kirkistown #FF1600 #BernardDolan #Ross11 #Adam7 #Morgan88 #Jamie89 #Max81

Day 2 of championship standings week and Jamie Sharp currently sits seventh in the Avon Tyres BRSCC Formula Ford 1600 National Championship with 178 points. 
After debuting for Team DOLAN in late 2018, Jamie joined the team full time for 2019 and it is fair to say he and especially Joe (Jamies Dad) are enjoying their time under Team Dolan colours. "Racing in Formula Ford is completely different to F4. Driving in FF1600 this year has made me appreciate how competitive the series is. You have to trust your instincts with car set up and race craft. Heading into the second part of the season, my main aim is to be more consistent and to move forward in the overall standings. With Team Dolan and Team Sharp behind me I'm sure we can achieve this"

We are officially half way through our summer break and with less than two weeks till Team DOLAN head to Northern Ireland for Round Six of the Avon Tyres BRSCC Formula Ford 1600 National Formula Ford Championship we thought it would be a good idea to see where the boys stand in the championship order. 
Each day this week we will look at a different driver in the Team DOLAN stable.

Ross Martin is currently top of the drivers standings with 375 points on the table. After a difficult weekend at Brands Hatch, Ross is looking to maintain a healthy gap at the top of the standings! "I am really looking forward to Kirkistown, a fast track and a number of big names have raced there in the past. As we head into the final stages of the season, it feels like only yesterday when we lined up at Snetterton for round one. Team Dolan are doing a fantastic job and I would like to thank them for their continuing efforts. I would also like to thank my sponsors Cab Direct and Glasgow Tigers for supporting me this year along with my family.” #TeamDOLAN #30yearsachamp #Champs #1989 #Kirkistown #FF1600 #BernardDolan #Ross11 #Adam7 #Morgan88 #Jamie89 #Max81

Really fun weekend of racing. Ended up with 2x 4th places, and 2x 1st places in the Scholarship class. Didn't make the main podium, but managed to close the gap to the top guys in my 2nd event. Even managed to run up in 2nd place for a few laps before the consistency, race craft, and experience of the top guys just wore away at me! I feel my raw pace is up there, just a case of keeping the consistency and cutting out small errors.
.
It was an awesome experience going wheel to wheel at high speeds, and at the same time trying to cut through the large Formula Ford grid which was also on track. Crazy stuff! 🏁
