Nine Race Schedule Anticipated For 2020 Irish National Roads Season

Nine Irish national meetings are anticipated to take place in 2020, with competitive action for the new decade beginning on the 24th-25th April with the Cookstown 100.

The Tandragee 100 celebrating next year it’s 60th anniversary, then takes centre stage on the 1st-2nd of May.

After a break for the Internationals, attention then focuses upon Kells on the 20th-21st June. One week later it’s the turn of road race action at Cork (27th-28th June).

A busy July which begins at Skerries and features the ever popular Walderstown and Faugheen 50 meets, concludes at Armoy which year in year out like the aforementioned events attracts a high calibre entry.

Following the four successive weeks of competitive action in July, the season is planned to conclude on the 12th-13th of September at the East Coast Racing Festival.

The Mid Antrim 150 will once again not form part of the road race calendar, plus as widely reported there’s a strong chance of Enniskillen not featuring in 2020.

24th-25th April Cookstown 100
1st-2nd May Tandragee 100
