Extracted taken from Road Racing News :
The Killalane Road Races, will not be taking place this year, following a decision made by event organisers Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club, who will continue to promote in 2017, the Skerries 100 scheduled to take place on the 1st of July.
With the various news in recent weeks about insurance premium’s going up for all Irish roads meeting’s, it’s fair to say quite a few people expected, the 2017 Irish roads calendar to be reduced in size.
In total this year, their will be seven Irish national meeting’s, the Cookstown 100, Tandragee 100,
Kells(editted – also cancelled), Skerries 100, Walderstown, Armoy and Faugheen 50 Road Races.
Unfortunately from the time the above was writted Kells Road Racing Event has also unfortunately been cancelled – hence the strikethrough.
Screenshot taken from the Kells Road Races Facebook Page : No further statment has been issued at this time.
This is obviously horrific news and a major blow to the Irish Road Racing scene all over the island and should be seen as a harsh reality check for all spectators of the sport.
