It was unfortunately at this time, (due to a number of factors – weather and numerous Red Flags at McAdoo Bends – thankfully no one was seriously injured) that racing was concluded for the day. This meant we lost out on the Grand Finale of the Cookstown 100 Superbike Race.
Negating the red flags, the weather was always indicating a wet end to the day – however from Roads Closing at 10:00 hours we had a couple of hours of glorious weather. I can not understand, given the accuracy of weather reporting on a daily scale, why the decision is not made to run the feature race at a time that has the optimum conditions? Over the last few years losing the feature race at the North West 200, Tandragee 100, and now Cookstown has become all too common. I do not see why the schedule must be set in stone rather than being fluid enough so that changes can be made, on the hoof, to ensure the best and safest day’s racing for competitors and spectators?
Other than that the racing we did get was great – the season is only starting so here’s to a safe, enjoyable and incident free 2018 season to all!
