Southern 100 Road Races

The Southern 100 organisers have been in contact with the shipping company
Concern has been raised by a number of would-be competitors, who plan to be riding at the Fore MCRC's Walderstown National Road Races on 11th & 12th July and then travel to the Isle of Man for the Southern 100 International Road Races which commence on Monday 13th July.

The Southern 100 organisers have been in contact with the shipping company, who after taking into consideration the vessels sailing schedules has stated that it will not be possible in this instance to amend the scheduled sailing from Dublin at 18.15 hours on the Monday.

The organisers are now in the process of amending practice and race times to ensure that any competitors making the crossing on that sailing will have sufficient Practice/Qualifying periods to enable them to be able to race at the 2009 Southern '100' Road Races.

Secretary, George Peach, is requesting all prospective competitors, who are planning to ride at Walderstown, then travel and compete at Billown, to e-mail him(georgepeach@manx.net) to enable the club to
make the necessary alterations to the schedules to ensure they are able to take part in the 2009 Southern 100.

For those sailing on the 'Snaefell' should note the following restrictions as to size of vehicles:

Height: 3m
Width: 2m
Length: Single Vehicle: 6.5m, with trailer: 10m
Weight: 3 tonnes

Your confirmation will be greatly appreciated, without it, the club will be unable to fulfil your wishes.
