2018 Mrs Brown’s Boys East Coast Racing Festival Results :
Sunday 9th August 2018 – the final race day for the Irish National Road Racing Calendar and it took us to Killalane for the 2018 East Coast Racing Festival sponsored by – strangely enough – Mrs Brown’s Boys. Fair play though Brown’s seemed to get right into the spirit of things coming up with a funky wee logo and and even more funky bus…

It also say the return to the roads of Derek McGee who just one month ago was knocked out of action at the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod…
Derek would like to thank everyone for their messages. All the injuries should heal. Disappointing end to the day from a non fault accident. We wish Seamus a speedy recovery too. The times looked promising & we were at the sharp end and feeling confident of decent results pic.twitter.com/jnWYbh7E3E

If we remove that slight hiccup from the equation the result is Derek McGee taking 15 wins from 15 races – a phenomenal achievement and one well worthy of a round of applause – !applause!
It didn’t come easy though as throughout the final Derek Shiels was snapping at his heels on the Cookstown Burrows Engineering bike taking second place by a mere 0.185s! The third place podium went to Michael Sweeney, Paul Jordan taking fourth.
