Mondello Park is always delighted to welcome a new sponsor on board and this year we are particularly happy to have Fiesta Zetec Championship sponsor Dan Keelan join us, especially as he is such a confirmed petrol head.
Dan grew up in the Isle of Man and inherited an interest in Motorsport from his family, who always had him around cars and bikes from a very young age. Dan began Stock Car racing on the Isle of Man, aged eighteen, and progressed to Rallying and Stock Car racing in the UK where he competed for more than ten years.
The first stock car Dan took into competition was a Ford Sierra and this season he will return to his Blue Oval roots, following a break of more then a decade, as he takes to the track in the Fiesta Championship which will carry his company name. The Keelan Construction MD decided he wanted to get back behind the wheel after his “career break”, as he missed the fun, having rekindled his interest through sponsorship of 2018 Champion Owen Purcell.
When asked what he was looking forward to most with his involvement in the 2019 Fiesta championship, Dan told us “I'm really looking forward to being a partner of Mondello Park and I'm really proud to be sponsoring the series as well as continuing to back Owen Purcell. It’s a pleasure to be back out racing with such a strong line-up of talent and I'm really looking forward to seeing how well i can run against the competition. With so many different aspects to my involvement I cant wait to see all the year has to offer!”
Along with cars, Dan's other great interest is building. Keelan Construction was established by Dan in Ireland in 2015, following 20 years of proven success in the UK. The company now provides its Irish clients with high-quality building expertise for residential projects including new builds, extensions, renovations and ongoing maintenance. Keelan Construction focuses on quality, using the best materials and building methods to consistently deliver the highest standards of work.
