Inaugural Cahir Motor Cycle Road Races 2013

Athea Motor Cycle Company Ltd. in conjunction with the Promoting Cahir Group, Kilcoran Lodge Hotel and Motorcycling Ireland bring you the first ever Cahir Motorcycling road races that will take place on a date in 2013 to be confirmed. This will be a new addition to the road racing calendar. 

The circuit is just 6 miles outside Cahir, just off the old N8 Carriageway.  It is approx 10 km, 6km down around the village of Burncourt and up and around many corners where it joins the N8 carriageway.  This runs right alongside the new M8 motorway from Dublin to Cork.  The stretch of the N8 is approx 4 km which is a fine stretch of wide open road which will test the many riders over the inaugural road race weekend.  Further details of the 2013 event will be posted later.
