This week’s RIAC-Motorsport Ireland classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is three races, including the title decider, from the 2000 Formula Europa Cup with commentary from Brian Tuite, Declan Quigley and Alan Tyndall.
The final iteration of the Formula Opel/Lotus series adopted the Formula Europa title for the new millennium but it still produced the action we had come to expect over the previous decade. With experienced campaigners like Vivion Daly and Noel Roddy mixing it with young stars like Morgan Dempsey Jnr, Paul Dagg and the 17 year old Keith Dempsey, the series produced fantastic racing. This week’s upload contains three races from that season, including the title decider from the Leinster Trophy meeting where Dagg and the teenage Dempsey fought it out for the title, with the youngster clinching the championship by a single point.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, October 1st.
Next week’s upload will once again feature action from the year 2000 with action from the Killarney Rally of the Lakes that year. The new millennium brought plenty new machinery and after a few years away from the sport, Stephen Finlay was making a comeback….
