Friday 29th & Saturday 30th April 2022
Friday Practice: Roads Close: 2.00 pm | Practice Starts: 2.30 pm | Roads Open: 9.00 pm
Saturday Race: Roads Close: 9.30 am | First Race: 10.30 am | Roads Open: 7.00 pm
After two long years of not being able to host the event due to COVID-19, we are thrilled to finally be celebrating 60 years of the Around A Pound Tandragee 100 Motorcycle Races.
“Standing about 1km away from the start/finish and I could see this horde thrashing uphill over two jumps towards me like they’d been stung by hornets. A mass start on narrow Irish country roads is something that you’ll never forget…gives you goosepimples! 8.5km (5.3m) and about 3 minutes later the air pushed aside as the bikes closely passed by, made my jacket flap back and forth…all came towards me at about 200km/h on the back wheel, I could have done with a nappy! It’s just amazing to watch, each and every one of them is racing with a knife between his teeth – you’ve got to be there to understand just how exciting it is.” (Stephen Bowers)
To help us celebrate our 60th event we wanted to do something special for ALL our competitors. For many years, we have thought it just doesn’t seem right that these heroes of our sport have to pay to entertain us. Whilst the additional costs associated with COVID-19 and the rise in the costs of insurance, logistics, etc means we have not been able to offer completely free entries; we are delighted that we were able to offer ALL competitors a reduced entry fee for our 60th year of £60 Stg per class! A huge thanks to the Tandragee 100 Supporters Club for their tremendous donation this year that helped make this possible.
In addition, we have closed the roads slightly earlier and added an extra Classic Race to help us both celebrate the history of our sport as well as thanking the ‘classic guys’ (who sometimes can be overlooked) for faithfully supporting us even during leaner years.
We have also increased the overall prize pot to around £11,500!
The Tandragee 100 continues to extend its reach, attracting competitors not just from NI (47) but from ROI (34), right across the UK (50) and Overseas (9). This year we have over 140 competitors and 49 newcomers (with 2 reserve newcomers), which demonstrates there is a future for road racing, if we look after it, and each other.
