Around A Pound Tandragee 100: Practice/Race Schedule

The stage is set for more first class Irish roads action on Friday and Saturday, at the 58th Around A Pound Tandragee 100.

Racers on Friday afternoon, set to sample the Tandragee course, dubbed by many as a ‘Mini TT’, for the first time include Cookstown BE Racing’s Davey Todd and McKinstry Racing’s Daniel Mettam, who both excelled last weekend, in their maiden KDM Hire Cookstown 100 expeditions.

Outside of the various notable debutants, lots of focus will also be on Tyco BMW’s Dan Kneen, who is targeting the momentous feat of a third Senior Open feature race success, in five years.

The full practice/race order for the Around A Pound Tandragee 100, which has attracted an astonishing entry of over 360 racers, is as follows:
