Rider Profile - Slane Maguire 2018 Dunlop Lightweight Supersport champion

Name: Slane Maguire

Hometown: Kesh, Co. Fermanagh

First motorbike memory:  Travelling in Convoy to the road racing with my dad, Richard Britton, Willie Britton and Barry Maguire. (The good old days)

2019 racing class: We are still trying to get something organised for 2019, but it’s looking like we might be competing in the pre-injection class.

Favourite track: Eastfortune, Scotland

Best result: There are 2 wins that stick out in my head:
1.       Coming from a distant 3rd on the last lap, to take the win on the last corner at Mondello ahead of Jason Floody and James Ging.
2.       The last race of the season against Damian Horgan and Alan Smyth, were I managed to lead the race from start to finish.
Both races you couldn't have put a cigarette paper between the 3 of us at every corner of every lap. Always good close racing among friends in the 400 class.

Ambition or goal: My ambition was always to be a road racing champion, but at the moment my goal is to just enjoy my racing and have the craic with my racing family and team.

Advice for new competitors: Enjoy and the results will follow

Motorcycle hero(s): My dad, Richard Britton & Martin Finnegan

MotoGP v WSBK: World Superbike

Valentino or Casey: Valentino is the man

Money no object motorcycle: RS250 (I’d have to drop a few pounds first though lol)

Fill in below what your plans are for this year including people\sponsors, bike information and fundraising activities.
We have no concrete plans or sponsorship arranged for 2019 as of yet, but we are planning to be out as much as we can.
I’m toying with the idea of running a raffle or maybe setting up a supporter's club, but it’s all just ideas at the moment. if we do decide to go ahead with any of these fundraising plans, they will be announced on our Facebook page (Slane Maguire Racing).
