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.

MCUI(UC) Press Release – 26th May 2020

MCUI(UC) Press Release – 26th May 2020 :

MCUI(UC) Press Release : Motorcycle Union of Ireland (Ulster Centre)
MCUI(UC) Press Release : Motorcycle Union of Ireland (Ulster Centre)

It appears the to and fro between Ireland’s motorcycle sports governing bodies continues.

On the 19th May 2020 the Cookstown Club announced that they hoped to hold their postponed Cookstown 100 event on 11th and 12th September 2020. This was met with a reasonably mixed reaction from the public. The two sides of the coin were :

a. This is a good thing, if conditions around the current coronavirus issues allow it, it will mean bikes racing in 2020 and will give people something to look forward to after what has been a very disrupted year due to the cover-19 pandemic.

b. This is a bad thing, it will put people at risk and add stress to the NHS. People have accepted that 2020 will have no racing so why try and push this through and risk the public’s health.

Then on 22nd May 2020 The Motorcycling Union of Ireland issued a statement. In which they stated that they were ‘alarmed and annoyed to read that some individual organising clubs within the MCUI (Ulster Centre) are still intending to promote events in this current climate.’ Motorcycle Ireland continued… ‘They do not have the authority or support of the Motor Cycle Union of Ireland to promote these events in 2020.’

Obviously this caused further discontent and controversy over the planned 2020 Cookstown 100 event, with the supporters of points (a) and (b) above becoming more polarised. National newspapers ran with the story bringing the issues surrounding the event and the MCUI to the forefront of public view. Newsletter and Belfast Telegraph.

In the late evening of 26th May 2020 the Motorcycle Union of Ireland (Ulster Centre) responded with their press release as below.

2020 Cookstown Races Cause Contention?

2020 Cookstown Races Cause Contention?

UPDATE : 26/05/2020 : The MCUI(UC) have issued a statement – read it here.

So far the entire Irish, Northern Irish and Manx Road Racing Season has been completely cancelled, with one exception – the 2020 Cookstown 100.

The Cookstown Club have always said that their 2020 event was postponed, rather than cancelled, and have recently confirmed that they are looking at running the event on 11th and 12 September 2020, however have also stated that it will most likely be a restricted numbers and ticket only event.

This is where the contention arises. From my own reading most people have been positive about it – welcoming the thought of a 2020 event, citing it as something to look forward too after what has been a reasonably horrendous 2020, for many, so far.

Others feel differently, suggesting running the event could put the Health Service under undue stress and pressure and having a gathering of people, or even planning such a gathering with the global and local pandemic still at a very dangerous point is just not wise.

Personally I am still on the fence.

If (supported by science and health advice) the event can be run safely, adhering to any restrictions still imposed by law and more importantly incorporating good common sense and have full medical cover – then why not?
