Tandragee, Faugheen & Athea Road Races - We'll Be Back!

Motorcycle Real Road Racing Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

Athea Motorcycle Road Race Club have apparently followed Tandragee and Faugheen by announcing their annual round of the Irish Motorcycle Road Race Championship due to take place on June 26th and 27th has now been regretfully cancelled. Like Tandragee and Faugheen, the Athea Motorcycle Road Race Club have also assured real road racing fans that they will be back in 2011.

The Athea Motorcycle Road Race Club Press Release went on: 'There were many individual reasons why we felt this was our only alternative and the crucial blow came last week when our one of our main sponsors went into administration.

The road surface on the circuit has also been an issue with the recent winter severity of conditions and we are currently working on this issue with Limerick County Council, to address it for 2011.

We wish to apologise to anyone who had made plans to attend our event and wish to thank everyone who has helped us over the last few months at the various fundraisers and those who offered their help and assistance for this year's event.

The Club met last night and decided due to the various issues that we had no alternative only to cancel this year's event. The Club have put a fundraising programme in place from May 2010 to prepare for our race date in 2011. The first leg of our fundraising will kick off with the launch of our membership packs. Contrary to rumours at the start of the year that the Athea Races were cancelled, the committee have been working flat out to try to save our event.'
