The Tandragee 100 is the road race to open the calendar of road races that are played throughout the year between England, Northern Ireland and of course, in the Isle of Man with the mythical Tourist Trophy. This year, the Northern Ireland event has had as a special incentive the return of Guy Martin to the road races, who has reappeared after his serious accident at the Ulster GP almost two years ago.
Guy Martin arrived at the Tandragee 100 after having completed a couple of test with the new Fireblade SP2 in configuration of Superstock. The weekend did not start very well for Martin, who failed to move from 16th place in the combined table of qualifying sessions. Already in the race, the Honda Racing rider managed to recover several positions during the first few meters, with the misfortune to go to the ground before completing the first turn after touching with Paul Jordan in the curve Marlacoo, an incident of which both left unharmed.
Derek Sheils of Cookstown BE Suzuki was the star of this Tandragee 100, dominating the race from start to finish with a fast lap of 107.760 mph. The second position was for William Dunlop, already dressed in the colors of the Sea-Train Yamaha at the controls of a R1 of Superstock. The podium was completed by Derek McGee (Kawasaki) after crossing the finish line nine seconds behind Dunlop.
Then you can live in first person this spectacular race on the back of the Kawasaki ZX6R by Andy Farrell, who maintains a spectacular duel with a Suzuki GSXR1000 during the 8.6 km of route of this urban layout, and see again the fall of Guy Martin.
