The Kells Road Races – held at Crossakiel in County Meath – were called off at the weekend due to adverse weather conditions.
There was a full two day schedule and practice was able to take place on Saturday. Heavy rain overnight left race organisers with a difficult decision to make. Racing was initially delayed before being completely called off. There were large puddles on track which caused safety concerns for the riders.
On Saturday practice sessions took place ahead of the nine scheduled races for Sunday. It was William Dunlop, who won twice at the Post-TT races at the Billown Circuit, who qualified on pole position for the Carole Nash Grand Final. He was ahead of Michael Sweeney and Derek Sheils in the times. It was Derek McGee who qualified on pole for the Supersport class, pipping Dunlop and Sheils to the fastest time. Elsewhere Adam McLean set the pace in Moto 3/125cc qualifying.
Richard Ford was awarded Man of the Meeting following his wins in the Junior and Senior Classic races, which were run in better conditions on Saturday evening.
