Road Racing Daily Derek McGee named Man of the Meeting at Tandragee 100

MAN OF THE MEETING AWARD FOR MCGEE AT TANDRAGEE

Derek McGee was named Man of the Meeting award following his stand-out performances at the Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100. 

McGee secured four victories and a second placed finish to cap off a remarkable weekend for the reigning Duke Rankings Champion. 

In the Rapid International Supersport 600 race, McGee has a terrific battle with McAdoo Racing’s Adam McLean as the two rivals jostled for the lead throughout the 6 laps. McGee’s B&W ZX6R seemed to have the outright speed advantage over fellow Kawasaki rider McLean, but it was still nip and tuck as the two entered the final lap with McGee running out the eventual winner by a fine margin. 

The ‘Mullingar Missile’ had to settle for second place in the McCrum’s Motorcycles Aprilia Open Race as Burrows Engineering / RK Racing’s Derek Sheils earned a hard fought win following a race long battle which saw the lead change numerous times. 

McGee grabbed his second victory of the day in the Tayto N.I. Supertwin race. In the City Autos Lightweight 125/Moto3 race, McGee romped home by a huge margin on board the Faraldo Racing Moto3 machine to take his third win of the day. 

The Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100 grand final was the last race of the day and it certainly lived up to expectations as both McGee and Sheils produced a stellar display of road racing with McGee crossing the line to take his fourth win of the day.

Road Racing Daily 2019 Around A Pound Tandragee 100 race day review

AROUND A POUND TANDRAGEE 100 RACE DAY REVIEW

 

The North Armagh Motorcycle and Car Club played host to the 59th running of the Around A Pound Tandragee 100 today in what proved to be perfect racing conditions. 

 

The first race of the day was the Rapid International Supersport 600 and that produced a thrilling battle between Derek McGee and Adam McLean. McGee, on the B&W Kawasaki ZX-6R, eventually edged out McAdoo Racing’s McLean by a mere 0.3s but it was nip-and-tuck throughout the entire race. 

 

Derek Sheils finished in third with Michael Sweeney in fourth place. Michael Browne kept the first four finishers very honest as he crossed the line in an impressive fifth place. 

 

Principal Insurance Junior Support honours went to Kevin Baker who finished two seconds clear of Eoin O’Siochru with Vinny Brennan back in third place. 

 

As the conditions remained perfect around the County Armagh course, next up on the schedule was the 6 lap McCrum’s Motorcycles Aprilia Open Race and once more the bumper crowd in attendance was treated to a real scorcher. 

 

Derek McGee started on pole and led for the majority of the race. Notably however, he was being stalked by Burrows Engineering / RK Racing rider Derek Sheils, who was going for a third successive Tandragee open win. He wasn’t to be foiled as the Irishman made his move and crossed the line a whisker ahead of McGee to take a hard fought victory. 

 

Adam McLean finished in third place and scored the fastest lap of the race; a sign of the young rider’s growing pedigree in the premier class. 

 

Senior classic spoils went to Guy Martin in the C1000 class and Dean Stimpson in the C500 class. Barry Davidson headed the C350 class with 250 honours going to Brian Mateer. 

 

The Tayto N.I. Supertwin Race was won by Derek McGee on board the KMR Kawasaki. In the early stages of the race McGee was enjoying a close battle with Adam McLean but the race was red flagged following an incident on the circuit and a result was declared with McGee running out the winner.  Adam McLean finished in second place with Michael Sweeney in third. Neil Kernohan, on board the the McCloy Home Imorovments machine finished in fourth place. 

 

Derek McGee made it a hat trick of wins as he finished first in the City Autos Lightweight 125/Moto3 Race on board the much admired Faraldo Racing machine. McGee finished ahead of second placed man, Joey’s Bar rider Gary Dunlop, with Kevin Fitzpatrick back in third. 

 

Gareth Keys and Barry Davidson were the first Forgotten Era and Supersport 300 machines home respectively. 

 

Andy McAllister won the Tandragee Supervalu Senior Support race ahead of Darren Keys in second place, and Darryl Anderson in third. 

 

That just left the Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100 to be decided and it proved to be a very fitting way to end a great day’s action. 

 

Derek McGee started on pole and the Mullingar rider was forced to work hard in the early stages as he battled with BE Racing / RK Racing’s Derek Sheils in a repeat of the day’s earlier big bike encounter. 

 

McGee made a good getaway but Sheils was hot on his heels; both riders showcasing serious road racing skills around the hills of the County Armagh circuit. Michael Sweeney was close behind in third place. 

 

That formation followed for the early laps, Sheils seemingly content to allow McGee to lead before making his move. By lap 5 McGee had indeed lost the lead and it looked as though Sheils, having made his move, would be difficult to pass. 

 

Not to be outdone, McGee was to retake the lead and claim grand final glory by a mere 0.195s. Michael Sweeney finished in third with Thomas Maxwell in fourth place. North Armagh club member Shaun Anderson finished in fifth place. 

 

That capped off a tremendous day of racing and huge thanks must go to Anne Forsythe and her team for all their hard work. The same can be said of the riders who put on a superb spectacle for the thousands of fans lining the circuit. Thanks also to the medics, marshals and volunteers.

Road Racing Daily Derek Sheils takes open superbike victory at Tandragee

DEREK SHEILS SECURES A STUNNING OPEN WIN AT TANDRAGEE 

 

Derek Sheils won the open superbike encounter of the day at Tandragee in what proved to be an absolute thriller. 

 

The 6 lap McCrum’s Motorcycles Aprilia Open Race began with Derek McGee on pole position and it was McGee who made the early running, Sheils stalking the Mullingar rider all the way. 

 

Burrows Engineering / RK Racing’s Sheils looked poised to make a move as he continually lined up his Suzuki machine ready to pounce, and on the sixth and final lap he did just that. McGee has no answer and Sheils crosses the line to take his third successive open race victory at Tandragee in as many years. 

 

McAdoo Racing’s Adam McLean kept the two leaders very honest throughout and it was the young Tobermore rider who not only rounded out the podium places, but also captured the fastest lap of the race with a quite stunning time of 2 mins 58.886s.

 

Martin Jones Racing’s Michael Sweeney was in fourth place with Shaun Anderson in fifth.

Derek McGee took a sensational grand final win at Tandragee today in the Around-A-Pound feature race. 

The Mullingar rider was forced to work hard for the victory as he battled with BE Racing / RK Racing’s Derek Sheils throughout the entire 6 lap race, eventually winning by a mere 0.195s. 

McGee, starting on pole, made a good getaway but Sheils was hot on his heels; both riders showcasing serious road racing skills around the hills of the County Armagh circuit. Michael Sweeney was close behind in third place.

Not to be outdone, McGee was to retake the lead and claim grand final glory in perfect racing conditions to take his fourth victory of the day. 

Michael Sweeney finished in third with Thomas Maxwell in fourth place. North Armagh club member Shaun Anderson finished in fifth place.

Derek McGee at the 2018 Tandragee 100

STAGE IS SET FOR THRILLING AROUND-A-POUND TANDRAGEE 100 
 
The Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100 has received a bumper entry this year ahead of the event getting underway on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th May. 
 
The North Armagh Motorcycle & Car Club will play host to almost 300 entrants and our homegrown talent will be on show alongside some top class international road racers.

2019 triple roads champion Derek McGee will also be in attendance to tackle the challenging County Armagh course and he will be joined by Michael Sweeney, Adam McLean, Davy Morgan, Nigel Moore and Barry Davidson. 

McGee enjoyed a superb start to the 2019 national season taking three wins at Cookstown on his way to securing the ‘Man of the Meeting’ crown. With rides coming in the Superbike, Supersport, Supertwins and 125/Moto3 classes, McGee will be favoured to repeat last weekend’s success. 

McAdoo Racing’s Adam McLean will lineup at Tandragee in a rich vein of form having secured victory in the Supersport race at Cookstown last weekend. The Tobermore rider will be fancied by many to be right amongst the contenders for honours when racing commences on Saturday.
