Default Mrs Brown’s Boys East Coast Racing Festival 2018

The 2018 Road Racing season draws to a close this weekend on the North County Dublin circuit of Killalane. Following a successful meeting in 2017 more high speed excitement is expected with practice\qualifying Saturday and a full race card Sunday.

The 2017 East Coast races saw the welcome return of Derek McGee following his UGP injury to try and complete the treble of championship wins in Superbike, Supersport and Supertwin. Derek Sheils and Micko Sweeney both turned the wick up to provide excellent and close racing in Supersport and Superbike. Derek Sheils won the Open race on the Burrows Engineering GSXR1000 and Micko Sweeney did the Supersport double on the MJR Yamaha R6.

This will be Paul Robinson’s last ever Road Race as he announced his retirement from the sport recently, so be sure to wave your programmes as the 250cc and 125\Moto3 rider passes by. #18

Racing on Sunday in conjunction with Mrs Browns Boys and Road Racing Ireland will include Junior and Senior Support, Classics 250\350 + 500\1000cc, Moto3\125 and will finish with the prestigious Grand Final race. Maybe we’ll be greeted by some of our recent ManxGP competitors too! Please invest in the future of Irish Road Racing by buying a programme and also respect the landowners and residents who kindly allow us to race “between the hedges”.

Following the meeting, local Travelling Marshal Ray Taylor will retire from racing. Having been on hand for over 25 years to support Irish Road Racing both in the South and the North Ray has been a magnificent ambassador to the sport and we wish him all the very best for the future.

In addition to the races, a William Dunlop fundraising barbeque will be held on Saturday night at the Hills Cricket club. Beginning at 9pm, admission is just €10 and all the proceeds will go to Williams family.

I can see road closure notices everywhere but does anyone know the timetable, even the time of the first race? Hoping to get out at some stage and show some support but no sure what time as yet

Heard all the marshals have to at their posts at 9.45 sharp! (allow for a radio check, last minute resident leaving the circuit, etc), bikes should be on the grid from 10 ish

Addition to the programme, legend of 80's Skerries Sam McClements 'Sue Ellen' GS1000 is on display in the paddock and Classic racer Billy Keenan will do a demo lap. Clinton's have the usual wares in the paddock along with the Joey Dunlop Foundation and a few others.

Good to see Derek Sheils out in the Open and Derek McGee on the Super Twin
