Honda CR-Z Mondello Track Day

Honda CR-Z Mondello Track Day

10th October 2011
Honda and Mondello Park joined forces on October 6th 2011 to host the Honda CR-Z Fuel Challenge Track Day. The event was the result of a popular Facebook competition where the Facebook community for Honda cars in Ireland was offered the chance to win a place on the Mondello Track Day, where the ultimate winner of the Fuel Challenge competition would be given the keys to a Honda CR-Z Sports Car for a Year.
The competition received 1,000s of entries from Honda Fans all over Ireland and a lucky 30 were randomly chosen to attend the Mondello Track Day. On the day, each of the finalists were tasked with completing 2 laps of the Mondello National Circuit using as little fuel as possible. With a time limit of 6 minutes, the winner was the person who achieved the best fuel consumption on the 2 laps. The Fuel Challenge demonstrated the advantages of the CR-Z’s Hybrid powertrain, where in Eco driving mode it is capable of fuel consumptions levels not usually associated with a Sports Car and CO2 levels as low as 117g/km for €104 annual road tax.
Meanwhile, to add a sportier element to the day, the competition was supplemented by 2 additional drives on the Mondello International Circuit. In another Honda CR-Z, the finalists were tutored by Mondello’s Instructors on how to get the best from the CR-Z in Sport mode where the i-VTEC petrol engine is boosted by the electric power of the Hybrid powertrain for a very responsive and sporty drive. In addition, a Honda S2000 was also on hand and finalists were offered the chance to drive as passenger in the vehicle while being shown just what the S2000 can do on the limit for plenty of sideways thrills!
The lucky winner of the day was Limerick man, Ben O’Sullivan, who achieved the lowest fuel consumption on the day, using just 4.9l/100km of petrol on his laps of the track. Ben will now receive the keys to a Honda CR-Z to drive for a Year as his overall prize.
Ben was presented with his car at his local Authorised Honda Dealer, John Moloney Motors, Dock Road, Limerick.
