Ray Casey #55 targets Isle of Man TT 2019

Roads and short circuit paddock regular Ray Casey has set himself the ultimate Road Racing challenge with an entry to the 2019 TT races.

Having already competed at National and International level at Motocross, Short Circuit and Road Racing, the Cork born rider will take on the Isle of Man mountain track later this year on his RC55 racing Kawasaki 600cc Supersport bike.

With an increasing level of fitness, respect and confidence Casey has never been more ready for the TT races, a meeting that is the pinnacle of Road Racing and a Mecca for riders and spectators alike.

Ray recently dipped his toe into the International Road Racing waters by entering the famous Ulster Grand Prix on his privately owned and ran bike. Using the Nationals as a platform to promote himself to the International scene, Casey now believes the time is right to tackle the 37 miles Manx track.

Funding the race is going to be just as daunting a challenge and a few events are planned.

First up is the TT Launch night in Ristorante Rossini, 33/34 Prince street, Cork at 7pm on the 28th of March. Tickets are €50 which includes entry to the launch, a 3-course dinner, chats with current racers, an auction, a Q&A session, Spot Prizes, photo opportunities and live music to follow. Tickets are available now at Marina Motors Glanmire and John Dunne Motors at Turner’s Cross.

Keep up to date with Ray’s progress on Facebook “Ray Casey RC55 Racing” and Twitter @raycasey55
