TYRES are turning for Tandragee 100.
The Navan Fort in Armagh played host to the Press Launch of the Tandragee 100 last night, thanks to Lord Mayor, Sharon Haughey-Grimley.
Under the watchful eye of the Clerk of Course, Anne Forsythe, the 2013 Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100, will take place on the Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th May.
There will be several events leading up to the Tandragee 100, including the sponsored walk around the track this Sunday (14th April), and the Tandragee 100 Supporters Club Ride-Out, the following Sunday (21st April).
There have been some great changes regarding safety of those who attend the races. The new 'No Trackside Personnel' policy has been put into place, with the moving of some flag marshals posts, further from the track, more prohibited areas put in place, and the resurfacing of roads, which was made more than welcome by the residents on the circuit, and those who use the roads on a regular basis. Cllr. Danny Kennedy, MLA, was in attendance at the Launch, who worked closely with the Tandragee 100, to ensure the resurfacing was carried out in the best possible places.
Practice will be on Friday 3rd May, with roads closing at 3.30pm. Saturday (race day) will see roads closing at 10am, and the classic parade laps will kick start the day. This year, the classic laps, will see past World Champion, Jim Redman, riding around the 5.3mile circuit.
Stephen McKeever, who crashed out of last year's practice, and suffered serious injury, attended to the Tandragee 100 Press Launch, to express his support for those involved. Stephen later said "The work that goes on behind the scenes is unreal, but they do a top job".
As race commentator, George McCann, had a chat with the riders who attended, he touched on the fact that missing from the line-up this year, will be three strong competitors, Ryan Farquhar, Adrian Archibald, and John Burrows, and reminded everyone that this was simply a generation game, as the new wave of top names come in.
George asked Banbridge racer Shaun Anderson what his plans were for the Tandragee, to which he replied, "I'll hopefully have three bikes out for it, if I can get the new CN Management 650 Supertwin ready". He went on to say the simple reason he wants it to make it's debut at the Tandragee 100 races is, "Simply because it's by far the best National Road Race we have".
This years selected charity for the Tandragee 100, is the Southern Area Hospice Services, who the club see as a very worthy cause. Clerk of Course Anne Forsythe had said at the meeting, "We all know someone who has required their excellent services at some stage".
Also this year, for the first time, race commentary will be broadcast live, on www.irishroadracers.com.
Additional information, and a circuit map which will include various facilities, will be available, on the website, www.tandragee100.co.uk
The North Armagh Motorcycle and Car Club, would welcome everyone to the event, and would ask spectators who attend the event, to buy a program, support the club in any way possible, and drop any loose change in the buckets for the Southern Area Hospice, who greatly appreciate your donations.
The Tandragee 100 thanks everyone for their support, including the hard work by the Tandragee 100 Supporters Club, to Gerry and Siobhan Rice at Around-A-Pound for their continued support, to Armagh City and District Council, and a massive thanks to all other sponsors and those who help make the race possible, and of course, the public who attend, who enjoy the event year on year.
