Serious day's racing in the pipeline

WEXFORD Off-Road Motorcycle and Quad Club return home to their motocross track in Clonroche on Sunday next after running a very successful round of the Southern Centre grass track championship in Courtown.

This time around the club will hold the final round of the Over-35s and Under-21s championships.

Now when you hear Over-35s, be under no illusions, these can produce the goods and bang bars with the best of them.

The Under-21 lads are a special sight to be seen on their 125/250 pocket rockets. These lads will tackle anything that the Clonroche motocross circuit can throw at them.

Riders competing top four in the Under-21s Pro class are Aaron Beausang, Midleton, Cork; Christy Harnett, Walterstown, Kildare; Thomas O'Grady, Lusk, Dublin, and Micheal Mahon, Brittas, Dublin.

Expert class competitors are James White, Mitchelstown, Cork; Shane Mulligan, Lusk, Dublin; Jordan Keogh, Duleek, Meath; Eugene Morgan, Monasterevin, Kildare, and riders competing in the clubman class are Richard Fanning, Skerries, Dublin; Mark Ryder, Louth; Brian McCarty, Carrigtwohill, Cork, and Stephen Malone, Rathfarnham, Dublin.

The Over-35s top four pro are David Doherty, Stephen Russell, Belfast, Peter Marshall, Wicklow, and Joe Moran, Newcastle, Dublin. Expert class are Ian Russell, Balbriggan, Dublin, Joe Bergin, Freshford, Kilkenny, John Dunne, Rathcormac, Cork, and in the clubman are Gary Doherty, Tsar Shane, Wicklow, Kemble Larkin, Skerries, Dublin, and Michael Mooney, Cashel, Tipperary.

The club will also hold a full series of open races for all adult A, B, C and youth categories.

Riders will start arriving on Saturday evening and until late at night to be there for an early rise where sign-on and scrutiny will take place from 7.30 a.m. until 9 a.m.

Practice will start at 9 a.m. sharp where all grades will get one lap of free practice and ten minutes timed. This will give them their gate positions for the day.

Racing will get going at 11.30 a.m., with the finish by 6 p.m. With in excess of 150 riders expected, this is leading up to one serious day's racing.

As this will be the last motocross race Wexford off-road will run this year, don't be the one to miss out.

There is plenty of spectator parking and vantage points to see the racing up close.

Wexford Off-Road would like to thank everyone who helped out during the year to make these events happen.
