Aiming to build upon the successful running of last June’s race meet, event organisers of the Enniskillen Road Races, the Enniskillen and District Motorcycle Club have recently confirmed that the newly reincarnated event will return to the roads calendar in 2019.
Next years Enniskillen Road Races set to take place from the 28th to the 29th of June, are anticipated to carry another lengthy race schedule, that includes the prestigious feature race named in honour of the legendary Richard Britton.
Reflecting on this years first Enniskillen roads event in 66 years, main highlights included Derek McGee banking five race victories, as the Bennetts Lightweight TT runner up excelled and some on an extremely warm race day.
