McGee's Famous Five in Faugheen 50

Derek McGee went one better than last weekend this afternoon by winning all 5 entered races on the day. 

Beginning with the Open race, McGee went on to take wins in Supersport, Supertwins, Moto3 and ending the day on a huge high by claiming the Grand Final.

The talented competition in the form of Micko Sweeney, Paul Jordan, Brian McCormack and the ever improving Davey Todd, wasn’t enough to challenge the Mullingar Missile today in sweltering conditions over the 5 and 6 laps races.

Racing was delayed due to a non-race related medical issue but, the Faugheen 50 club  ran the meeting like clockwork meaning all racing was complete by 4.30, which is a huge credit to them. It has to be mentioned that all of the Faugheen 50 officials, stewards, marshals and volunteers played an impressive role and added to this marvelous fixture.

The paddock was full, as were the hedges and the meeting went off without incident thankfully. Other winners on the day were Brian Mateer Classic 250, Barry Davidson Classic 350, Richard Ford 1000cc and Davidson again on the 500.

Michael Browne blitzed the Senior Support race from Wayne Sheehan and Liam Chawke. The Junior Support went better for Liam Chawke as he won from Barry Sheehan and 3rd place Stephen Morrison.

Darryl Tweed took the win in the Lightweight Supersport race from Stephen Tobin and Stephen Morrison.
