East Coast Motorcycling Club : Press Release :

The East Coast Motorcycling Club is delighted to announce that they are running 2017’s Irish road race finale. The circuit previously run as Killalane road races, which was the traditional road race season closer, is now the Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival. Following a brief sabbatical in 2016, this new Killalane circuit race will take place this year on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017.

The new East Coast Motorcycling Club was formed in 2016 following the cancellation of the Killalane Road Races last year, with a view to ensuring this fantastic annual motorcycle racing event, held since 1984, was retained as the finale on the Irish road race calendar.

This two day road racing festival kicks off with practice races on Saturday, followed by two of the first official races, which includes two non-championship races for 125’s and a 600cc race in memory of Darren Lindsay.

On Sunday 10th a packed programme of ten races for Junior and Senior Support classes, Classics, Supertwins, 400’s / 250’s, 600’s and Open Superbike Classes.

This makes for a fantastic day’s road racing on this famous 3.6mile southern Irish road race circuit. Past winners over the 32 years of the event reads like a who’s who of Irish motorcycle racing including the legendary Joey Dunlop and his brother Robert and the late great Flying Finn, local boy Martin Finnegan. More recently it’s been Ryan Farquhar, with the Dunlop brothers William and Michael.
