Faugheen 50 preview

The Faugheen 50 takes place this weekend along the narrow Tipperary roads and promises to please the spectators that will line the hedgerows on Saturday and Sunday.

The big names are all there but, every class in the meeting is also brimming with talent and the grids are full. As well as the Superbikes, Supersport, Twins and Classics, there’s big in interest in the other championships going on, such as Junior Support, Senior Support and the rare outings for 125 and 250cc GP machines.

Practise began this morning with the newcomer’s session and racing begins on Sunday about 11am. Get there early, buy a programme to support the hard working club and find a safe spot along the roadside to absorb the spectacle that is pure Irish Road Racing!

Please respect the local property and land by keeping it litter free. Please also listen to the marshals in the various zones, trust me, they are there for your own safety and the safety of the riders.

Best of luck to the Faugheen club, riders, Medical Team and officials and here’s to a safe weekends racing!
