Default Enniskillen Road Races launches with debut meeting in June

Enniskillen and District Motorcycle Club will run races on the roads of County Fermanagh for the first time in 66 years when bikes return on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th June 2018.

The enthusiastic club are hosting a ‘no frills, just pure road racing’ event which it hopes will become an annual fixture on the Road Racing calendar.

Set in the shadow of Cuilcagh Mountain, the three-mile circuit has a little bit of everything ranging from wide fast straights with sweeping corners to blind jumps along narrow tree lined routes is only a few miles from the now famous stairway to heaven walk over Marble Arch Geopark, Lough Erne and local marinas.

The race schedule will see a full day of practices on the Friday with roads closing from 12 – 9, with a full grid of newcomers its set to be a busy day. On Saturday there will be an 11-race programme with the Richard Britton Memorial Race to be the showcase of the day.

Richard is the main reason the club were able to move forward with our plans with the funds raised thanks to the tribute film which was commissioned by the club and produced and directed by Colin James to mark the 10th anniversary of his untimely passing.

Riders from all over Ireland north and south will compete at the event with riders from as far as Germany and England.

“We believe that the rider at the back is every bit as important as the rider at the front we are hopeful to put on a show as never seen in this area before. We are proud to bring motorcycle racing back to the area and as it was during the last race in 1952 it will again have the ‘old school’ approach and the local community are looking forward to the event,” said a club spokesman.
