Cork Road Races June 15th/16th 2013

Cork Motorcycle Races Glanmire will have its launch night on the 8th of February at 9pm sharp in the Bk2 Pub Glanmire Shopping Centre. Photo shoot on the night + live DJ + Free food! We are also happy to announce that this race will be a round of the Duke Road Race Rankings Championship 2013.



As part of its ongoing plans for promoting and organising motorcycle sport events, the Cork Motorcycle Racing and Vintage Club is happy to announce The Cork Motorcycle Races Glanmire, to be held on the weekend of June 15th/16th at Upper Glanmire and will take in part of the old Cork-Dublin road.
The event has received unanimous support from the business and local community of Glanmire, while the weekend promises to be a family festival and apart from the incredibly exciting motorcycle racing.


The track itself is a 3 cornered, 3 mile course and has received the positive endorsement of both officials and riders alike, making for one of the best tracks on the Motorcycle Road Racing calendar. Ideally situated just off the M8 on the approach to Cork City at Junction 18, it will mean shorter travelling times for competitors and spectators from all over the country. Cork airport is just 15 minutes from the circuit with Dublin just a 2 hour drive.

A full programme of races will take place on the weekend from 125s to 1000cc Superbikes while the nostalgic Classic machines will also grace the track. The cream of Irish motorcycle racing’s elite including Derek Shiels, Brian McCormack, Miko Sweeney and Jamie Hamilton will be at Glanmire while TT rider Maria Costello MBE is also expected.
