Hello everybody and welcome to KDM Hire Cookstown100 road races 2017. It has been a quick few winter months to say the least and I'm once again looking forward to this season after coming away with a couple of decent result at last years Manx GP. My main aim this year will be that top step at the Manx where I will once again be joining forces with Martin Bullock Manx Sport and Full Factory Winnerswear. It is a great set up and one I'm very gratetful for, “Martin is a massive help and support and without him I wouldn't be out there racing and doing what I love to do”.
“The KDM Hire Cookstown 100 has always been a race meeting I look forward to and I have had a couple of good results here before and hopefully I can add to them this year again. There are a lot of races on the card again, and I take my hat off to the organisers who do a great job to get them all run. It can be a Thankless job at times but each year they take the time to organise, set up the track and try and raise much needed funds to make sure that us as riders get to do what we love and more important to provide a great show to the spectators here this weekend. As a lot of people may already know, we are going through tough times to meet the cost of insurance to have these meetings in place and is proving difficult for a lot of clubs to run. Us as a family of road racing fans, supporters and riders all need to do our part in making sure this great sport doesn't go by the way side so could I PLEASE ask for you all to dig deep and BUY A RACE PROGRAMME to help the club(s) to run next year and make sure that we can all be here again enjoying OUR sport.
A massive thank you to all involved this weekend and may it be a fast and safe weekends racing. “
