Mayo-born Birrane broke the Irish land-speed record in 1990, hitting 176mph on a then-unopened tract of the M50 motorway. He owns London-based property investment firm Peer Group which saw its net assets boosted by 23.7m to 243m for the year to July 2016. He also owns Mondello race track and expects to grow revenues to 4m next year following a deal with BMW to base six of its fastest new cars there.
