Safety boost for Tandragee 100 race route

MOTORSPORT RACE officials have planned a significant resurfacing project along the Tandragee 100 route ahead of May’s event.

Members of the North Armagh Motorcycle and Car Club predict a winning combination of safe racing and fresh lap records as a result of the substantial work.

“After successful lobbying by the North Armagh club, Department for Regional Development minister Danny Kennedy MLA recently announced that the whole of the Cooley Hill section of the circuit will be resurfaced in time for the 2013 races on May 3 and 4,” said a club spokesman. “This notoriously-bumpy section of the track will be completely resurfaced, as will other smaller sections of the track, thereby improving not just rider safety, but also road surface conditions for local residents.

“This is part of the club’s on-going commitment to rider and spectator safety, coupled with the already extensive safety plan, this can only be good for everyone involved.”

Club members would like to thank Mr Kennedy and all at DRD for such support.

In another boost, Hudson Trailers have agreed a sponsorship package to support the St John Ambulance services for the May weekend. For further information on Cabragh Road-based Hudson Trailers visit
