Another huge milestone for Michael Dunlop meeting another motorcycling GOAT.

Both legends in their own right. One circuit God, one Roads King.

Private trackday at Silverstone on Wednesday.

Faugheen is fantastic circuit for cool down laps once the race is finished. And it gives the riders a chance to appreciate the fans.

And that they do!

Derek McGee is the man.


Great news.

Team update,

We’re delighted to announce we’ll be heading to the Isle Of Man this August with two TZ250’s racing under the Laycock Racing banner. We can’t put in to words how happy we are to say that both Mike Browne and Ian Lougher will be racing aboard these bikes this year!

Both TZ’s are prepared by Eddie Laycock and supported by Danfay Yamaha who have been very kind to come on board this year as a sponsor and supply us with all the Genuine Yamaha parts needed for these machines.

There’s only two months until these lovely little two strokes fire up on the island, and we’d like to thank all of our sponsors who have helped contribute towards the running of these bikes for the Lightweight race this year at the Manx GP.

Keep an eye on the page for some more updates over the coming weeks.

So the countdown begins….

Let’s go racing…. 🏁


Hats off Stratto! We’ve been had.

Bad luck befalls Team 109 in Misano

It was a case of cursing bad luck for Team 109 at the Misano round of World Supersport 300 this weekend despite a hugely promising outlook following timed practice.

Daniel Mogeda had progressed extremely well on the 400 Kawasaki in field full of young Italians all determined to make a statement at their home race. However the talented rider dismissed all doubts and incredibly put the bike on Superpole.

The feature race started well for Mogeda but unfortunately disaster struck mid race and the Assen round winner became tangled up in an incident and went down. Following the race it was determined that Daniel would not be race fit for the second race and the weekend ended prematurely for the privateer Cork squad.

Team 109’s next race is Most, Czech in July.

Heal well Daniel, onwards and upwards!


Tremendous victory for Scott Swann this afternoon in trick conditions at Knockhill.

Taking the 18 lap Pirelli National Superstock by the scruff of the neck, the popular Northern Ireland rider diced with Davey Todd for most of the race before eventually seeing off the challenge from the Cheshire Mouldings TAS BMW mounted Todd.

Swann will be celebrating his win on the Swann Racing Honda Fireblade which will bump him up the table in the Pirelli National Superstock with Moneybarn Vehicle Finance Championship with 1 more race tomorrow.

Well done Scott and team!

Some fabulous news from Rhys Irwin

“I’m happy to announce that I’ll be riding for Gearlink Kawasaki for the remainder of the season in the British Supersport Class 🗞️

Jumping onto a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is going to be a huge change for myself but I’m up for a challenge and would like to thank Michael, Ben and Lou for giving me this amazing opportunity 🤝”

You won’t find too many Irish or International paddocks where either or both of the Chawke brothers haven’t raced. The quality of their racing and their turned out bikes is incredible considering the modest budget too. Always glad of an extra sponsor if available!

Today’s Wheelie Wednesday is James on Bray hill.

That’s the style of a past Manx GP winner.

Apologies for the late Kirkistown report

Big 3 Series King of Kirkistown USBK Round 4
Jonny Campbell and Ryan Gibson shared the spoils at round 4 of the Ulster Superbike Championship last weekend with a victory each in the Superbike races. Campbell took the win in Race 1 from Korie McGreevy and Aaron Spence while Ryan Gibson took the chequered flag in Race 2 ahead of Jonny Cambell and Ross Irwin. In the Superbike Cup class Conor McDonnell won race 1 from Almantas Montvilas and Damian Horan while in race 2 McDonnell took the top step once more, this time from Michael Clyde and Nicky Burns.
In the Supersport races, McAdoo mounted Korie McGreevy beat Christian Elkin and 3rd placed Andrew Smyth to the line in Race 1 with Elkin taking the win in Race 2 from Jonny Cambell in 2nd and 3rd place going to Mark Conlin, a first ever Ducati Supersport podium in the Ulster championship. The Cup win in race 1 went to Rab McAuley ahead of Jordan Grier and Barry Gaston and in race 2 Jordan Grier got the better of McAuley with Sam Clements 3rd.
Christian Elkin did the double in the Supertwins races, leading home a determined Caolan Irwin and Dean McMaster in a restarted Race 1. Race 2 produced an identical rostrum as Race 1 with Elkin banking the fastest lap in both races. In the Production Twins, Race 1 went to John Martin, from Lewis Grove and Johnny McCay with Race 2 providing another identical podium.
In Moto3, Alexander Rowan won race 1 from Matt Davidson and 3rd place Robert O’Neill and race 2 was a carbon copy of race 1 with Rowan hosting the fastest lap. In the Lightweight Supersport category Graham McAleese won both races from Alan Mairs, Mark Allen and Nicky Burns taking the remaining podiums. Alan Mairs set the fastest lap in both races. Ruben Sherman-Boyd continued to dominate the Supersport 300 class with 2 race wins as Bailey Dobson kept him honest with two 2nd places. Matthew Watson was 3rd in both outings.
The Moto1 class was a 2 horse affair between Isaac Mark and Joey Hennessy rewarding both with a win and 2nd place in the two races. Hubert Tomaszewski was 3rd in both races.

The first combined classic race saw the 1000cc win go to Andy Kildea ahead of Ian Thompson. Lintin Irwin took the honours in the 350cc class from George Stinson and Bryan Harding. Malcolm Love won the 250cc race ahead of Brian Mateer and Simon Woolsey. Race 2 produced a win for Edwin Gilmore in the 1000cc category with another 2nd place for Ian Thompson. Malcolm Love took another win in the 250cc class from Brian Mateer and Simon Woolsey. Linton Irwin also won the second 350cc race once again beating George Stinson and Bryan Harding. A depleted 500cc entry saw Stephen Walsh win both races.

The Ulster Superbike series returns to Kirkistown this weekend June 14th and 15th.

And so ends a dramatic fortnight that was TT 2024.

Some incredible performances from the top riders but, huge congratulations to all that took part. All those pre-TT island visits, late nights in the workshop and sacrificing personal family time have paid off, not to mention the cost!

Whether you’ve picked up a trophy, a replica or beaten a personal best sincerely well done.

But, most importantly all home safe.

Have a great night tonight and we’ll see you all back home.

And to quote James Chawke - “The prep for TT 2025 starts tomorrow.”

Thanks to all our photographers and contributors Jack Corry, Baylon McCaughey and Isle of Man TT X.

4 star performance for Michael Dunlop

Simply unstoppable at the moment as Michael Dunlop takes another win. Taking the Paton S1-R to a second victory this week in the Entire Cover Insurance Supertwin race Dunlop secured his 4th win of the festival.

Dunlop made the most of his P6 getaway passing all in front to eventually leading on the road from Peter Hickman and Corks Mike Browne on his In Competition Aprilia RS660.

The result was declared following a red flag with Dunlop on lap record pace.

TT win number 29!

TT Hat trick for Michael Dunlop

Michael Dunlops winning streak continues at TT 2024. Completing the shortened Monster Energy Supersport Race 2 4 seconds ahead of Dean Harrison the Ballymoney man recorded a sensational 28th Isle of Man TT victory. Davey Todd came home 3rd.

And still 2 potential races left for Dunlop who used the MD Racing Yamaha R6.

Tremendous performance.

Remembering the late Alan Bonner on his 7th anniversary

Every so often the paddock is gifted with a talented rider who has the charisma of a superstar but, the humility of long term friend and that sums up Alan Bonner.

In the short time that we were blessed with his presence, even after 2 or 3 shared race meetings you always felt that he was a life long friend. The stories recalled at his service cemented his memory as a legendary character of Irish racing.

A national Senior Support championship winner, at one time Irelands fastest Southern rider at the TT, Bono had an enormous talent for speed. It’s always inevitable that across the paddock you’ll have intense rivalry but, no one could ever accuse Alan as being unfriendly, quite the opposite. Even in difficult situations at race meetings he could always manage a smile and a chat for his many, many fans.

Rest easy and Godspeed Bono, always in ours thoughts.



Remembering Davy Morgan tonight.

Rest easy and Godspeed 71.

Throwback Thursday watching some past TT competitors

Lee Johnston is providing some of the best commentary and analysis during the races giving fantastic insights to the TT. Thanks for the terrific coverage Lee!

And Limerick’s Pa Giltenane left nothing out there either as he piloted his Suzuki powered Sidecar across the mountain circuit. On passenger duty was the late Aidan Browne who fulfilled a dream by becoming a TT competitor that year. Fondly remembered still.

Cherished memories of the Isle of Man TT 2013.


Another exciting day at TT 2024 and another fine finish in the Metzeler Supertwin race for Michael Sweeney who brought his Aprilia RS660 home in 12th.

Great to see Micko back on the pace on the Rock, today’s Wheelie Wednesday.

Double delight for Dunlop to take TT win 27!

An historic today for Michael Dunlop as he claimed a record breaking 27th TT victory in the Metzeler Supertwin Race 1.

Dunlop charged to the front of the leaderboard on lap 1 of the 3 lap race making up time on the road gradually creating a 10 second lead. Having a flawless compulsory pit stop at the end of lap 1, Dunlop also got away cleanly. Placing his faith on a slick tyre combination Dunlop extended his lead on lap 2 on the familiar Paton S1-R to eventually win with a 40+ second lead. Peter Hickman took 2nd ahead of Burrows Engineering\RK Racings Dom Herbertson to take a popular first podium.

History created at TT 2024.

Can anyone supply us with images from last weekends Ulster Superbike round for our report?

It’s a bit unfair that the competitors don’t get a mention just because there are other events on.

Ideally some from most classes would be a help.


Tonight has been cancelled.



Conditions are improving so we will have racing this evening!


Michael Dunlop will be disappointed with today’s result but, what a recovery and finishing with a Superbike lap record will spur on the 26 time TT winner.

Many smiles per hour today at Round 1 of the FIM MiniGP Ireland Championship

Terrific afternoon’s entertainment today watching tomorrow’s future stars of Irish racing at the first round of the 2024 FIM MiniGP Ireland Championship.

Held at the popular Meath venue Athboy Karting Centre, the Ovale mounted riders had plenty of time to get to grips with the many twists and turns of the track. We were greeted with sunshine for the entire day as practice, qualifying and racing took place.

Big performances for multiple race winner Alfie Flynn while Jack Hamilton and Paudie O’Malley battled hard for remaining podiums around the twisty busy circuit. Jordan McGahon also took a podium. Conditions were excellent all day for racing and all groups enjoyed generous support from those present on the day. Entry was free. Races were held over 15 minute sessions giving riders opportunities to make up for any mistakes or poor starts.

The FIM MiniGP Ireland series is an excellent entry level race programme with many past competitors already elevated to current championships in other Irish Short Circuits.

Round 2 ties in with the Principal Insurance Masters weekend event on June 29\30th next on the Mondello National circuit.

We’ll see you there.


19th place for passenger Diarmuid Mac Raemoinn in the chair of John Shipley’s LCR Suzuki in tonight’s 3 Wheeler Media Sidecar race 1 completing 100mph laps in the the process.

Derek Lynch and Anthony McDonnell came home 21st on the DMR Suzuki with a last lap of 103.5 over the 3 lap race.

Mark Gash passenger (pictured) for Bruce Moore both retired at the end of lap 2 while running 17th. Hopefully they can get out for Race 2 later in the week.

Well done!
