Circuit is only a little over 2 miles long...so i'd say go to Village and paddock area,this area also has the main straight, but you can easily get to a few different spots from there.

great viewing areas at Faugheen
they have a grand stand at start finish and all good viewing areas around the track , they have 40 foot truck trailers open to anyone who wants to get up and view from a good vantage point around the circuit .
food and bogs also everywhere around the circuit .
one of the best run races around
Great for the practice tomorrow ( Saturday ) too with less people and just as fast
im gonna do both
Weather is supposed to be good

word of advice I love the classics but bring ear plugs as they are noisy as fook

Great day today. Started on the bend around the back of the circuit and worked the way clockwise around the circuit throughout the day. Just a long walk at the end of the day back to the parking place. Not sure where to park the bike tomorrow. Would it be worth getting in before roads close and parking in one of the campsites...

There is a big place in an old mill building smack in the middle of Clonmel just opposite the cop shop. Mini Breakfast for Ä7.95 with free coffee refills. Spot on.

Derek McGee’s winning run in the Irish National road racing championship continued with another five wins from five starts at the Faugheen races in Co Tipperary today.

His second five from five of the season.

He opened his account with a dominant performance in the Open race taking the chequered flag some eight seconds ahead of Brian McCormack and the ever-impressive newcomer Davey Todd.

Next up he won the 125/Moto3 race on the Joey’s Bar bike, crossing the line 28 seconds ahead of second place Kevin Fitzpatrick with Enniskillen’s Melissa Kennedy third. Gary Dunlop making his first appearance this season finished fourth.

In the Supersport race, McGee didn’t have it so easy. Last year’s winner at this event Paul Jordan put in a gallant effort to spoil the Mullingar man’s clean sweep, but it wasn’t to be and in the closing stages of the race McGee managed to ease ahead taking the win by one and a half seconds from Jordan and Michael Sweeney in third.

In the Supertwins race, McGee was untouchable on the Ryan Farquhar KMR Kawasaki, putting in an unchallenged performance, winning by 1.5 seconds, again ahead of the Cookstown Burrows Engineering rider Davey Todd with Thomas Maxwell third.

The Mullingar Missile finished off a perfect day with a win in the feature Grand Final race again it was English rider Davey Todd who was runner up seven seconds in arrears with the final podium place going to Michael Sweeney.

The championship now moves back North of the border to Co Antrim for the Armoy Race Of Legends next weekend.

Some results from earlier, another Irish National five out of five for Derek McGee ;
