The world-famous Skerries 100 Road Races can claim to be the oldest in Ireland, and the excitement just gets sharper every year. That’s why this prestigious event is such a powerful magnet that pulls in riders from all around the globe. They’re drawn by the incredible history, the electric atmosphere . . . and most of all, the real racing challenges that push them to the limit of their skills. So how can you stay away from this superb spectator spectacle?
The roll call for past races includes top class riders such as William and Michael Dunlop, Andy Farrell, Derek Shiels, Michael Pearson, Jamie Hamilton, Michal Dokoupil, Maria Costello and Michael Sweeney. This year will see a great mix of international road racing champions and rapidly rising stars bidding for fame and glory with open, supersport and grand final victories. Pick your spot on the circuit, and watch the pick of great racers go roaring past!
For a different kind of excitement, head for the Paddock where you can see behind the scenes and breathe in the full atmosphere of it all. This is where you’ll find all the riders, their machines and their support crews. You’ll also find that many of the riders will be happy to chat with you and sign autographs – but remember they’ve come to compete, so they might be chilling between races or psyching themselves up for the next big one. Meaning they might want their own space! But you can spend as much time as you like exploring all the great trade stands spread out around this area, and check them out for bargains.
Fancy yourself as a potential race ace? Then take to the track with the fantastic insidebikes app powered by Carole Nash. Free to download, it includes an augmented reality 360O experience that puts you in the saddle of Rocket Ron Haslam’s Honda superbike as you speed round Donington GP Circuit. Come on the Carole Nash stand for more information.
We can hardly wait to be there soaking up the excitement along with so many fellow bike fanatics. Come up on our stand and meet the team who’ll be handing out great giveaways.
So start making your plans now for the Skerries 100 2016!
