Southern 100 Road Races

Castletown's Chris Palmer and Dromara's Ian Lougher, inaugural winners of the 125cc and 250cc TT Races on the Southside course last year have confirmed their entries
With only a fortnight remaining before entries finally close for the Isle of Man TT Races 2009, the line-ups for the 125cc and 250cc TT Races on the popular Billown Course are arriving daily at Race Secretary George Peach's home.

Castletown's Chris Palmer and Dromara's Ian Lougher, inaugural winners of the 125cc and 250cc TT Races on the Southside course last year have confirmed their entries for Saturday 13th June.

However, the successful duo won't be having it all their own way with some of Britain's finest two-stroke competitors taking their places on the grid alongside the duelling veterans.

William and Michael Dunlop are entered in both of the Billown TT Races, as is fellow Ulsterman Barry Davidson, whilst Saintfield's Davy Morgan will be aboard a 250 CSC Honda for the quarter-litre class, along with Dungannon's John Burrows on his B E Racing Honda.

Scottish rider, Mark Buckley, who is proving he is no slouch around the 4.25- mile course, also has a brace of Hondas at his disposal.

Blackpool's Roy Richardson will be riding the Jackson Honda 125cc machine in the Ultra-Lightweight event.

Another 'Billown regular', Peter Wakefield will also be on both grids with his PW Racing machines.

With the grids already half full already, it looks very likely that both TT Races could become over subscribed by the closing date.

Watch this space as they say!
