The 2020 Skerries 100 Road Races have been cancelled. The press release from the club is below.
Following confirmation from our governing body Motorcycling Ireland (SC), advising that “all events are cancelled” “for the foreseeable future”. We have taken the decision to cancel the Skerries 100 in 2020.
Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club acknowledge it takes a huge effort from many individuals and groups to organise and run our event. Our local community and the wider road race community are our biggest concern at this difficult time. In both communities, we have people that come from all walks of life, people who could in the coming weeks, be working on the front line or indeed have their lives severely impacted due to this current crisis. Our thoughts are with you all.
We thank everyone that made the 2019 Country Crest Skerries 100 such a success and we look forward to your continued support, working with us to make the 75th anniversary Skerries 100 in 2021 even bigger and better.
The 2020 Irish Photo Rally has now been announced by the Iron Butt Association Ireland. So if you are looking for something fun to do on the island of Ireland this year then this may be the calling you are looking for.
This year the theme is ‘The End of the Line’ and features railways all throughout Ireland, past and present.
There are 15 locations to visit across Ireland between now and the end of September 2020 so plenty of time to get all over the island, as the map shows you will be everywhere.
Not only that, from April to September the IBA Ireland releases one other spot that is only valid for that month – ‘The Brief’ which will be another point of interest somewhere in Ireland. This year they have been kind enough to give some hints as to where ‘The Brief’ will be located so you can plan your trips to take in a few of the 2020 Irish Photo Rally points as well.
The entry is a very fair 10 Euros and I guarantee you will see places you had no idea even existed.
Finishing the Iron Butt Association Ireland 2020 Irish Photo Rally and the monthly ‘Briefs’ will probably put a couple of thousand miles on your bike, but every one of them will have a purpose of a very rewarding completion of the rally.
Oh and in case you were wondering you don’t have to be an IBA Member to complete in this rally, although if you enjoy this you really should considering having a look at the qualifying rides that will make you a member, one specific to Ireland is a full lap of the island within 24 hours – that is an epic day out! (I have done it twice so if you would like to read a little more about those trips you can do so right here.)
If you would like an idea of where previous rallies took you then please read on…
The 2019 Road Racing Season is now over (with the exception of Macau).
You will notice a bit of a change in the site content over the coming winter months – with more ‘tech’ content. Just go with it, you might even like it – and be safe in the knowledge that when the bikes are back on the roads all the important info will still be here.
If you have no interest in anything that else that the site has to offer I won’t hold that against you either – just bookmark or save the site to your favourites and I will see you again in April 2020!
In the meantime make sure you subscribe to the TBNI Road Racing Calendar – as always it is free, keep up to date and already is starting to get the 2020 dates added to it. If you haven’t already subscribed have a read and get that sorted.
The 2019 East Coast Racing Festival concludes the 2019 Irish Road Racing Season.
Unfortunately I couldn’t get anywhere near Killalane due to a mechanical incident with my bike – well some a**e left a massive screw on the M1 motorway near Dublin and ruined my chances of getting anywhere near the racing. So thanks for that you inconsiderate t**t!
However well done to all involved in the event. If you would like a decent recap of the event check out the
