The Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Sponsored Enniskillen Road Races 2019

21st May 2019

The Enniskillen and District Motorcycle Club (Road Racing) Ltd are delighted to launch the 2nd Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Enniskillen Road Races which will take place on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June 2019.

Following on from the success of the first ever race to be ran around the Arney circuit, the club are hoping that they will attract a good entry as this year the event will have Irish/Ulster Championship status. Entries are starting to come in fast with riders from all over Ireland and the UK

TV Coverage

As an added and welcome boost to the event, Highlights of the Road Race are scheduled to be broadcast on BBC NI, with Greenlight TV providing coverage of the Irish National road race. The 11-race schedule will again see a full day of practice on the Friday with roads closing from 12 noon and racing on Saturday from 10am. The Richard Britton Memorial Race will again be the main feature race with a total event prize fund of £12k. Set in the shadow of Cuilcagh Mountain, the 3-mile circuit has a ‘little bit of everything’ ranging from wide fast straights with sweeping corners to blind jumps. The circuit and the area in general proved to be popular with the riders who attended last year. The club hope to grow and improve the event year on year.

Title Sponsorship

The Club warmly welcomes Fermanagh and Omagh District Council back on board as main sponsors for 2019, without the support of our local council this event would simply not happen. We look forward to working together to ensure the event is a long-term fixture on the Road Racing calendar.

Speaking about the Council’s sponsorship of the Enniskillen Road Races, chairman, Councillor Thornton said:

“I am delighted that Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is the title sponsor for the Enniskillen Road Races for 2019 once again. The Council recognises the benefits that events such as this may bring to the area and as such, very much welcomes events to the district. The Road Races and the showcase they provide help to promote our tourism product to a wider market and act as a catalyst for our local economy, generating income for our local businesses. We also appreciate the combined community effort to host this event and the support of the residents of the Arney/Bellanaleck area where the circuit is based. The Enniskillen area is the ideal location for this event as it is effectively the gateway to the North, South, East and West. The Council is therefore delighted to be working in partnership with Enniskillen and District Motorcycle Club (Road Racing) Ltd on this venture and is pleased to provide its support to the 2019 Enniskillen Road Races once again.”

We would like to thank:
