Watch all the action at Faugheen 50 Road Races 2018

Join the throngs heading down to South East Ireland for the adrenalin-fuelled Faugheen 50 Road Races and get a close-up glimpse of the action as some of the country’s best riders battle it out for glory.

This year’s event has been confirmed as round seven of the 2018 Irish Road Race Championships. Along every inch of the 2.3-mile course, riders will test out their skills and bravery over two action-packed days that are sure to leave spectators both breathless and spellbound.

Every year families flock from all corners of Ireland – and beyond – to experience the unique atmosphere of the Faugheen 50 Road Races. This year looks set to be even bigger and better than ever!

Two days of nerve-shredding road race thrills

The triangular route, which leads out of and back into Faugheen village, will provide plenty of tests through Creamery Corner, Billnurra, Carrick Corner, Newton Lower and Church Corner.

Wherever your preferred vantage spot, organisers suggest you arrive by 10am at the latest – with the roads in and around the village shut off from 11am on both the Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, all eyes will be on the contenders during a tense practice session, with some of Irish motorcycling’s most famous names getting to grips with a track that has plenty to think about.

Fantastic family fun at the Faugheen 50!

With good weather (hopefully!), good company and good racing, there’s no better family weekend than at the Faugheen 50. From watching the first tentative practice laps through to the prize presentations, including the famous Man of the Meeting trophy, you can get up close with the bikes and riders at this magnificent event.

There are plenty of food and drink stalls to keep you going, and don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the Carole Nash tent.

Our team will be out in force, giving away goodie bags galore, posing for selfies, and chatting all things bike with anyone who wanders along. And if you’ve got any insurance questions, our friendly specialists will be happy to speak with you!
