Greenan is record-breaker

5 June 2024

A CASTLEWELLAN business owner is the new record holder for fastest car lap at Bishopscourt Racing Circuit.

Tony Greenan, who owns and operates T Greenan Tyres & Alloy Wheels, recently broke the record which has stood since 2019, not once, but twice in the same day in his Dallara F317 Mercedes.

Competing in the Formula BOSS (Big Open Single Seaters) Ireland Championship at the Ballyhornan venue, Tony recorded a lap time of 1.03.500 to pip Paul O’Connell’s previous record of 1.03.560.

Not completely satisfied with having already beaten the mark, Tony later set off again and smashed his time to set a new record of 1.02.358.

“I found out straight after the race,” said Tony.

“My pit crew told me and I was overjoyed.”

This performance placed Tony at the top of the Boss Ireland Championship, however, he is closely pursued by Noel Robinson.
