Faugheen Road Races 2010 Cancelled

Motorcycle Real Road Racing Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

The Tandragee 100 promoters seem to have set a new trend - hot on the heels of their recent cancellation comes the announcement that the Faugheen 50 Supporters Club have with 'great regret' cancelled the Faugheen Road Races, also laying the blame on the current economic conditions.

And as with the North Armagh Motorcycle and Car Club Ltd, the Faugheen 50 Supporters Club also said they remained committed to running the Faugheen, Carrick-on-Suir road race event in 2011 and would pursue with tremendous vigour a number of major fund raising events throughout 2010 in order to have sufficient funds available, to pay bills, prior to running the road race in 2011.

Most of the approximated €80,000 required to stage the annual Faugheen Road Races, came mainly from competitors entrance fees and programme sales etc.

We await with baited breath for the next unexpected cancellation announcement, and wonder from which side of the border it's most likely to emerge.
