We’re here to take over

by Gazette Reporter

The East Coast Motorcycling Club has announced that they are running 2017’s Irish Road Race finale. The circuit – previously run as Killalane Road Races, which was the traditional road race season closer – is now the Carole Nash East Coast Racing Festival. Following a brief sabbatical in 2016, this new Killalane circuit race will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10.

The new East Coast Motorcycling Club was formed in 2016 following the cancellation of the Killalane Road Races last year, with a view to ensuring this fantastic annual motorcycle racing event, held since 1984, was retained as the finale on the Irish Road Race calendar.
