Adelaide International Kells Road Race

The cancellation of last year’s event due the torrential rain which left the circuit in an unfit state for racing after just 3 races, resulted in a loss in revenue for race organisers the “Kells & District Motorcycle & Racing Club ” (Kells MCRC) and main sponsor , Adelaide Insurance Services.

The good news is that despite these difficulties, passion for the sport has won through and propelled those involved to find solutions, so it’s full speed ahead for this 17th international road racing event, in Kells, County Meath with:

Practice Day on Saturday 16 July and Race Day, Sunday 17 July – 11 races, guaranteeing a top-class field of international riders and competitive racing culminating in the International Kells Grand Final.

Race Secretary, Aileen Ferguson said “We’re delighted that given our recent difficulties we’re up and running for 2011 with Adelaide, as ever the Kells MCRC have worked extremely hard to bring a top class event yet again to Co Meath.

We’d like to wish all competitors safe racing and once again the club are promoting BikeSafe together with Meath County Council, the Gardai and PSNI for all spectators travelling to and from the event.”

“We’ve been involved with this event for a number of years now and a great deal of time has been invested in building relationships and working with the Kells MCRC to enhance this event, so we had to find a way of making it work, and we have!” Sam Geddis, Director of Adelaide Insurance Services.

This event once again includes the “Kells Bike Fest” in Co. Meath on Saturday 16 July – a major attraction for the whole family.

Tony Lynch, from the Kells MCRC is organizing the entertainment and back by popular demand world stunt rider Mattie Griffin, will be there!
