This week sees the third round of the VC Iveagh Race League take place on the Plantation Road, Gilford. With two rounds already completed, both our VC Iveagh and Visitors leagues are taking shape and things are most definitely getting tight at the top. The Plantation Road is seen as slightly quicker than the Castlewellan Road TT but it’s certainly no walk in the park. As always, there is a lot of pre-race excitement especially after our last TT and the great event it turned into. Once more Chris ‘Kipper’ McGlinchey will be joining us and trying his best to set a record on the Plantation Road, if he’s successful he’ll be taking the KOM from VC Iveagh, sorry Neil. Having just had a fourth place finish at the Tour of Ulster and taking the top under 23 rider prize, he is certainly hitting peak form at the right time.
This year the VC Iveagh Race League is proudly sponsored by Rice’s Hotel who will offer a prize for not only the overall VC Iveagh league winner but they will also offer the same prize to the visiting club race winner. Basically if you attended more than 50% of VC Iveagh races you will qualify for the visitor’s prize. There are no handicaps for the visitor league; whoever comes first will get 10 points down to 1 point for 10th.
