Racing on the Irish Roads – Racers Recollections: Ray Casey

The twelfth racer to take part in Road Racing News, recently launched Racing on the Irish Roads – Racers Recollections series is Munster 100 podium finisher, Isle of Man TT participant in 2019, Ray Casey.

His answers to the Irish road racing themed set of questions, are as follows:

Q1: What is your first Irish road racing memory?

“My first road race was at kells in 2017. My favourite memory from this was getting out for a lap behind William Dunlop. His style is unmatched, it was special to have a hawk eye view of him doing his thing.”

Q2: Present favourite Irish road race?

“My favourite road race is obviously my home event in Glanmire (Munster 100).”

Q3: Who is your most respected fellow Irish roads exponent?

“Derek Sheils has to be up there, great rider to watch. I also think Cork man Mike Browne is bringing new flair to road racing and I think he will go all the way in the Internationals, within the near future.”

Q4: If you could alter one aspect, in particular, within the sport, what would it be and why?

“Track time, the lack of track time at a national road race if you only have one bike, is something that needs to be addressed.”

Q5: To date what has been your favourite Irish roads moment?

“Finishing 12th on my own 600 at the Ulster GP in 2019 after starting 22nd.

I had no idea were I was in the race because there was a big group which includes some of the top teams and riders. I was shocked to find out I was 12th.”

Q6: Irish road racing summed up in one word, what would it be?


Q7: Is there any Irish roads event, that you haven’t raced at yet that you would like to?

“I had planned on doing the North West 200 in 2020 on the Superbike until covid put hold to them plans.”
