Venue: Loughshinny, Co. Dublin, Ireland
End the season in style at the Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival 2017
Thousands of relieved racing fans will be heading to Loughshinny, County Dublin, between September 9th and 10th for the final round of the Irish National Championship, the inaugural Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival 2017.
Held in the small fishing village since 1984 under the banner of the Killalane Road Races, this year’s event looked to be in jeopardy earlier this year due to a lack of funds.
Luckily, as the Ireland’s leading specialist motorcycle insurance broker *^, Carole Nash was only too happy to step up to the plate and provide the necessary financial support to ensure this year’s races were able to proceed – and the Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival was born!
What’s on at the Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival 2017?
The event has traditionally been regarded as one of Ireland’s biggest biking occasions, with famous names such as Joey and Robert Dunlop, Steve Cull, Mark Farmer, Sam McClements, Dave Leach, Owen McNally and reigning Irish road race Superbike champion Derek Sheils roaring around the local lanes.
The 3.6-mile course is similar to the famous Skerries 100, held just up the coast. Some of the roads are even tighter in places, though, so expect to see some white knuckles as the riders battle their way round the challenging circuit.
As well as the racing itself, why not pop over to the paddock for an unforgettable chance to see some of the awesome race machines at rest? Grab a few selfies with the riders and support crews, or just watch them at work preparing for the next big race. You can also check out the great trade stands and stalls piled high with biking bargains.
