2020 Cookstown 100 Results

2020 Cookstown 100

No one thought it happen – road racing in 2020, but it did!

Full credit must go to Cookstown 100 Club and every member of the team who pushed forward with what at times must have seemed like an impossible task – running a road race in 2020 and under the ever present cloud of Covid-19.

But press ahead they did and the result was an extremely successful and extremely well run 2020 Cookstown 100.  There were some restrictions in place such as movement around the course and the numbers of people who could be admitted, none of which were under the control of the Club.  You can after all only play the hand you are dealt, and they played their hand well.

In 2020 if the only thing you can complain about is that the weather closed in and meant the feature superbike race had to be called off, then you have done well, and really that’s all there is to complain about – the Northern Irish weather – typical.  But, for most of the day it was grand, warm and dry – couple that with a ‘full house’ and riders and teams who were clearly thrilled to be back on the roads and you get a brilliant road race.

The only disappointment now is that that is all 2020 has to offer in the Northern / Irish Racing Calendar.  One thing is for sure it will have wet the appetite for 2021!

Onto the racing and we saw the return of Adam McLean after his off at 2019 Tandragee and he came back with the outstanding form he had been showing prior to the Tandragee incident – excellent – resulting in a double for him in the Supersport and Supertwin classes, and adding the Supertwin lap record to his list of accolades.

The Superbike Open race took three attempts to get a result, the win for Derek Shiels on his BMW showed more of the same from the Irish man – fast and stylish – as we have grown accustomed two over previous years and brought his total to 9 wins at Cookstown.

Paul Jordan continued to show his class and form, taking a strong win in the Moto3 / 125cc class.

Neil Kernohan with his distinctive helmet and always immaculately turned out machines took the 250cc / Lightweight class and Barry Davidson took the Junior Classic.

Vinny Breenan took the first race of the Day in the Senior Support Class, Junior Support was lifted by Michael Gillan by over 4 seconds in an impressive race.
