    The Irish International Grand Prix meeting at Phoenix Park on the 18th July 1930.

    Victor Gillow (Riley Nine Brooklands - car No.45) won the Saorstát Cup for cars up to 1500cc (and a £1000 prize).

    However, the result of the 1930 Irish International Grand Prix was determined by the combined results of the Saorstát Cup race and the Éireann Cup race (for cars over 1500cc), so Gillow came second to German driver Rudolf Caracciola (Mercedes), who won the "big" car race.
