As usual, you are required to apply for IRDS at least 14 days before cover is required by filling out one of the forms below and sending it to MI.

However, competitors and officials will no longer receive an IRDS/BRDS letter or need to present a letter to organisers at event sign-on. Instead, under new arrangements agreed with the insurers, an updated database will be published on Thursday of each week, which will be available to view by all concerned.

This Database can be accessed through the Motorsport Ireland Website by clicking on the "IRDS & BRDS DATABASE UPDATED" link in the "LATEST NEWS" section on the home page.
