Fire up your engines for Faugheen 50!

Join us for a weekend of nail-biting action on two wheels at the 2019 instalment of the Faugheen 50 Road Races in south east Ireland.

The Carole Nash team is looking forward to two days of raw energy racing on the roads of Tipperary over Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July 2019, when the ever-popular competitive motorcycle event returns to Carrick on suir.

Attracting bike fans in their droves, the Faugheen 50 is a classic fixture in the Irish motorcycling calendar. Bringing together some of the country’s top riders, the road races take place over a challenging 2.3-mile course, with riders from across Ireland and beyond battling it out to scoop a top position.

The atmosphere at Faugheen is always electric – expect the 2019 instalment to be no less exciting!

Live action riding to get pulses racing at Faugheen 50 Road Races

Drawing visitors from up and down Ireland, as well as further afield, the Faugheen 50 Road Races take place on the Sunday, with the practice sessions running on Saturday.

Both days are packed with plenty of pulse-racing action on the tarmac as entrants compete along the testing triangular route. Leading out of and back into the village, the road course takes in plenty of tricky turns at spots like Creamery Corner, Carrick Corner and Church Corner.

Organisers are urging spectators to arrive in good time to choose the perfect vantage position from which to enjoy the contest – roads in and around the village will be closing each day and racing will get underway between 11am and 12pm, so get down early and make sure you don’t miss out!

Fun for all the family at the Faugheen 50

Alongside the adrenaline-pumping action on the roads, there’s always lots on offer to keep the whole family entertained at the Faugheen 50 Road Races. From food and drink stalls to trophy presentations, visitors of all ages will find lots of ways to keep busy in between races.

There will be photo opportunities aplenty, especially at the Man of the Meeting presentation when the best rider of the day is awarded with a trophy for their efforts, and visitors can head over to the paddock to get close to their biking heroes of both the man and machine varieties!

The Carole Nash team will be in attendance, so pop over to our tent for a chat about all things bike and pick up one of our famous goodie bags in the process! Our insurance specialists are always happy to answer any questions you might have and will be handing out free bike insurance quotes, too, so let us know if you’re nearing your renewal date.

We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the sun puts in an appearance over both days but either way, Faugheen 50 2019 promises to be a weekend to remember, so join us for two days of rip-roaring road racing!
