are'nt there just some rubbish people who post on this site! If you are a true road race follower you would know Derek Sheils has already lapped the Island at a good speed in crap weather on a standard bike, has had good leaderboard and podiums at Scarborough and lapped the Ulster at 127mph so thats who Derek Sheils is!!! Enough said!

Raced alongside (behind) Derek from 2001-2004 on the Irish Short Circuits. He was head and shoulders above all the guys out there at that time in my opinion, brilliant and effortless talent, mixed it with all the top boys when riding fairly basic machinery, many of whom have won TT's and BSB in the time since then. Seems to have taken a steady approach to the roads and hope he continues to do so. Best of luck Derek.
