Armoy: Ultra Consistent McGee Scores Tilesplus Kia Supersport Victory

Ultra consistent, was the perfect way to describe Derek McGee’s performance within the Tilesplus Kia Supersport race, as the Mullingar racer in style took his total of victories at the 2019 Bayview Hotel Armoy Road Races, into triple figures.

Never headed within the seven lap encounter, ZX-6R Kawasaki mounted McGee steadily pulled away from the chasing group led by Derek Sheils and Michael Sweeney.

The current Duke Road Race Rankings champion went onto claim race honours, and a coveted Armoy Supersport double by 5.34 seconds.
