The Dunlops are heading for Skerries …!!!!!

The Dunlops are heading for Skerries ...!!!!! as are the Pirellis, Michelins, Metzlers and Avons … yes we are talking tyres. Over 250 tyres will be setting down some rubber on the famous Skerries 100 circuit on the 3rd and 4th July 2015. Road Racing has been a part of this community for nearly 70 years. The Skerries 100 Road Race is the oldest and most prestigious of all national Road Races in Ireland and our event is a magnet for riders who are drawn by its history, real racing atmosphere and racing challenges.
Our race weekend begins on the 2nd July in Skerries Mills when bikers from all around the country come together to celebrate their machinery and the old circuit. A parade lap takes place and the community come out to line the streets in support. This year we have chosen St Michael’s House, Blood Bike East and Camphill Communities of Ireland as our charities to benefit from entry to our parade lap. Sign on starts at 6.30pm at the Mills and the cost is €10/£10 per entry. On the 3rd July we get down to business with our practise and qualifying sessions starting from 2pm until 9.30pm. On the 4th race day kicks off at 9am and the crowds gather early to watch a full days racing. Spectator entry is €20 this year but this price also includes your official race programme for the weekend and all proceeds go to the racing fund. The cost of running a road race is staggering and LMCSC take on the challenge to run 2 races in a matter of months apart. We have a fantastic line up of national and overseas riders filling up the grids and we are delighted to see so many newcomers to the roads this year. The sunshine has been requested and the team are in full preparation mode. Over the coming weeks we will start our countdown with information on our race sponsors, who we are so very grateful to for the their contribution to the racing fund, where to stay and as always we give you a tour of the circuit filling you in on where to watch the fantastic racing from. So make sure you check in with us regularly for lots of information and the exciting build up to the first of our road racing events...the AXA IrelandBikecare Skerries 100.
