The first race of the season and what a race it turned out to be! The conditions were damp and murky but that did not deter 8 pairs from taking part and amazingly only 3.27 separated the first from the last. Mikey Connors, making a welcome come-back, and Gary Rowan took a well-earned third place while only 2 seconds parted the 2nd pair, Brian O’Neill and Duncan Hodgins from the winners, John Foote and Julie White. This was Julie’s first club race win and on last night’s performance it certainly won’t be her last! And no better man to lead her home than TT expert John Foote. Well done to them and well done to all who took part – it really was a great race. Many thanks to Mike Sheedy who marshalled for us and to Vic and Tracy who took some great photos.
Next week is the first roadrace of the season – a 10 mile race from Kilkeary to Lisboney via Toomevara. Meeting place is Moynan’s shop at 6.30pm.
