MUNSTER 100 ROAD RACES
On behalf of the Cork Motorcycle Racing and
Vintage Club, we wish to regrettably announce the postponement of the Munster
100 motorcycle road races due to take place this coming weekend the 13th
and 14th of August. As you are all aware, Trojan work has been
underway in the paddock and the race circuit in the last number of weeks in
anticipation for the road races in Glanmire. However, in the last number of
days we have experienced unprecedented weather conditions which have caused an
irreversible effect on sections of the road circuit. We have met with all
relevant local authorities on a continuing basis over the last number of days
with a view to making the best of a worsening situation but we cannot stem the
tide. Factoring this and the forecasted weather up to and including race
weekend we have to take the safety of competitors in mind and make the decision
to postpone the event. At this stage we would like to thank all our supporters,
sponsors, land owners, residents, marshals, neighbouring Clubs and the people
of Glanmire and Cork County who have been phenomenally supportive to us once
again. Ultimately this decision is ours as a Club but we hope that everyone in
the road racing community will understand we have to put the safety of our
riders before all else. We will have a further update on the postponement of
the event shortly with a view to announcing a future date.
Yours in sport,

A brief guide for the new fans
MUNSTER 100 ROAD RACES 2022
Notoification - Event postponed - details to follow.
After a 2-year enforced hiatus from road racing the Munster 100 Motorcycle Road Races return to Glanmire, Cork. The last couple of years have been starved of road racing action owing to the global pandemic but with the easing of restrictions a highly anticipated National Championship is set to return. This will be the 3rd running of the Munster 100 Road Races at the 4.6km Glanmire track and the 22nd running of the Munster 100 as we know it.
A tightly packed calendar has seen pressures put on competitors and supporters alike therefore the Club has taken the decision to give some breathing space to those who need it most and the final rounds of the MCUI road racing Championships will take place round the Cork City track on the second weekend in August. "With the new date on the Calendar we hope to have a bumper paddock this year. Given how tough it’s been on the supporters over the last few years, competitors are chomping at the bit to get going so the scene is set for another great weekend’s road racing in Glanmire." That was the view of Club Chairman Robert Farrissey who himself was excited at the prospect of motorbike racing returning to the Cork track again.
The Club has slowly but surely been putting the wheels in motion for 2022 buoyed by the huge turnout at the recent Motorcycle Show that saw the World’s fastest road racer Peter Hickman make the journey to Cork alongside three-time British Supersport Champion Jack Kennedy. All eyes will be on the local contingent once again with the likes of Ben Mullane, Stephen Tobin, Derek Wilson, Stephen Casey, John O’Donovan and most notably the rising star of the road racing scene Mike Browne. Browne heads up the RK Racing Burrows Engineering outfit and is sure to be fighting for podiums in the marquee classes. It seems like a lifetime ago now but in 2019 we saw Derek Sheils, Micko Sweeney, Vinny Brennan and Davy Howard all secure National Championships in Glanmire and the stage will be set for similar victories this August.
First bikes down the road on Saturday will commence at 12 noon when a full practice and qualifying program will get underway in race order. Saturday evening will also feature 2 Championship races for the Classic categories and the racing will resume at 11am Sunday morning after scrutiny. All going to plan the 5 lap Open class will start proceedings for the 8 race card culminating in the 6 lap Grand Final to bring an end to what will hopefully be a safe and enjoyable days racing.
For more information you can head across to all the usual social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so for all the latest news just search for Munster 100 Road Races. Entry wristbands are available on the approach roads at only €30 for the complete weekend’s racing action which now includes the programme free and kids go free!
