KDM Hire Cookstown 100 – Qualifying/Race Schedule

Anticipation is building and building ahead of the start of the 2019 Irish roads season tomorrow, at the KDM Hire Cookstown 100, which on Friday hosts a full day of practice, qualifying sessions, plus five races in the evening, including the Open Superbike race.

Lots of focus will also be on BE Racing In Conjunction with Richardson Kelly Racing’s Derek Sheils, who’s aiming to make it a hat trick of feature race crowns at Irish road racing’s longest running roads event.

Others amongst the top class entry, keen to begin their 2018 roads stints in style include McAdoo Kawasaki’s Adam McLean, Michael Sweeney, Paul Jordan, Darryl Tweed and reigning Duke Road Race Rankings champion Derek McGee.
