Castlewellan RD TT : 21/04/16

tt 700

The excitement amongst the VC Iveagh ranks is growing, the opening 2UP TT on the VC Iveagh Race League has given us an appetite for more. With the season now underway our second race is fast approaching, the tough windy route that is the Castlewellan Road TT. There is always a lot of pre-race excitement but this year more so as we have a very exciting rider taking part in this event, Chris ‘Kipper’ McGlinchey. With numerous wins and podiums under his belt this season he has climbed the road racing ranks to officially become the current ‘Best Rider in Ireland’, no mean feat. Kipper will be putting his new Vitus Chrono to the test and getting some much needed TT miles under his belt.

  1. Super evenings racing with a great competitive, yet friendly atmosphere. This is a route that suits those with both power and torque to deal with the sharp undulations. Great buzz last night from start to finish. Big thank you to all those that Timed, Marshalled and assisted in making the event so enjoyable
