Reigning UK Monoposto champion Mark Reade gave the Leastone 1000 its competitive debut on Irish soil last weekend at Mondello Park’s Leinster Trophy event, racing in the Formula Libre class.

Mark Reade got his championship challenge back on track with a solid brace of results at Brands Hatch last weekend. Morgan McCourt also came away with a solid haul of points, recovering from a qualifying hiccup to grab a pair of top 10 finishes around the 2.43 mile Kent circuit. Mark put his no. 45 Leastone on the second row for the first of Saturday’s races but Morgan’s session did not go as smoothly, as a throttle issue sidelined him in the early phase of qualifying.

Reade was joined by his first full time team mate in the form of Morgan McCourt, contesting the full Monoposto championship following sporadic outings over the past few years.
