Commenting on his Facebook page, on his days racing at Skerries, Michael said:
“Well that’s skerries 100 over for another year and I’m shattered after the long drive home, we ended up with a 5th 6th and a win so happy enough with that.
Then it was a few parade laps for the crowds of people which was great, I can’t thanks all my sponsors enough and my team super job and anyone one else that’s helped.
Also thanks to jog tuning, Mototech and big Arnie which were a big part of me winning that race fair play cheers.”
