Centenary debut for Dan Hailing from Melton Mowbray, 29-year-old Dan Ingham will make his Cookstown 100 debut next week, Now in his 16th season of racing, it was only back in 2014, when he sampled the ‘between the hedges’ feeling when he competed at the Scarborough road races at Olivers Mount. In 2018, the employee of Ricardo Motorcycles finished 2nd in the Ultra Lightweight Manx Grand Prix on his beautiful RVF 400 Honda. He achieved a personal goal, in 2019, when on board the Strangford Holiday Park GSXR 750 Suzuki, he lapped the mountain circuit at over 120 mph, thus becoming a member of the elite ‘Tommy Club’ A married man with two children, Dan will ride one of the new 660 Aprillias at Cookstown, courtesy of Castings Technology, and also his trusty 400 RVF Honda, sponsored by Derek Jones Butchers, and Digitial Deadline. Whilst this may be his debut at the meeting, Dan was a spectator at the event in 2018, as his wife is from Northern Ireland, and, he managed to snatch a run-up to the event! whilst visiting his inlaws. Keep an eye out for Dan next week.#135

Dunlop, who won the 600 invitation race in 2018, and scored his only ever national road race win in the supertwins here in 2015 has not won the Feature Cookstown 100 race since 2013, something he will be eager to put right in 2021 Dunlop's attendance will certainly whet the appetite for road race fans, who have been starved of action between the hedges over the past two years. Looking back to Armoy, the 17 times TT winner, Dunlop was in scintillating form, having had time during the pandemic to recover from injures received at the Southern 100 road race in 2019 As in the past, entries are full in all classes. The KDM Hire Cookstown 100 was the only road race to run last year, and the organizing club set a precedent for the future of road racing, with their online booking system, a simple but successful procedure that is again in operation for 2021. The race package, costing £25.00 which includes the Race Programme and wristband, both of which are required for entrance on both days, Race packages will remain on sale until Friday, August 20th. Please Note; Dispell any rumors you may hear, that you can turn up on the day and get in!, this will NOT happen, Rules are very simple; 'No Race package= NO Admittance to race circuit' The Cookstown 100 is a closed event, and the protocol used last year will remain in place for 2021. The KDM Hire Road Races will have practices and time permitting, three races on Friday 10th July, with the remaining races on Saturday 11th September.
