This Saturday, October 5, St. Angelo airport will once again be turned into a motorcycle race circuit, as the Enniskillen and District Motorcycle Club, (road racing limited) host round 10 of the Ulster Superbike Championship, the ‘Enniskillen Revival’.

Now in their fifth year of racing at St.Angelo, the ever expanding club has continuously took on new riders over the past few seasons, and have no fewer than 50 riders competing in both road racing and short circuit events, quite a few of whom will be in action at the weekend.

The sport has grown in the area over the past few years with thanks to the club working tirelessly throughout the season, and with the addition of the Enniskillen road races to the calendar this past two years, no doubt the spectator levels will yet again rise at the weekend.

With championship places still to be decided, spectacular racing will be on the cards, on racing bikes which range from 125s to the very fast superbikes. As well as the racing, the event which is supported by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will also have parade laps for the bikes of yesteryear.

Club members to look out for on the day include Gary Scott who leads the way in the Moto3 class from Rossi Dobson and Jamie Lyons, but the local interest will be on Melissa Kennedy, who recently won her first road race, along with brother Wayne and Kyle Parkes.

Run concurrently, the lightweight Supersport also has some local interest with Grant Kennedy, Nathan and Andrew Cairns, and a rare appearance this season for Connell Furey, who has spent this season helping Adrian Heraty out at the road racing.

In the Pre-Injection class, it has been a season long battle between Johnny Irwin and club member Derek O’Donnell, Irwin just coming out on top in the championship, added to the ever improving Liam Trainor and Steven Love, it’s sure to be good racing.

In the Superbike pro, even though Aaron Armstrong lies currently third in the championship, he is the only rider in his class who has a 100 per cent record when it comes to finishing the races, and no doubt he’ll be chasing down the two riders in front of him, Carl Phillips and Alastair Kirk. Road race star Paul Gartland may have a say in proceedings though, as the Ederney man picked up third and fourth positions last season at this event. Andrew Brady is another rider not to be ruled out, even though he seems to disappear for a lot of the season, but comes back with a bang. Lee Chambers has been the top rider in the Superbike Cup, but local men Steven Love and Alan Armstrong could both be in with a shout for a podium spot. Derek O’Donnell and Liam Trainor will be in action in the Supersport Cup, but Keith Richardson looks to be a non starter after picking up an injury at Mondello Park last weekend, while in the Supersport pro class, Dylan ‘Ace of St. Angelo’ Leonard will be in action against the top men.

Ajay Carey, who has been the runaway leader in the Junior cup class will be in attendance, but may not get it all his own way, while Brookeborough rider Adam McClintock will be out for just the second time this season. Karl Lynch and Braydon Cummings could be the ones to watch in the young guns, but a young man who has recently entered this class, Alexander Rowan, is certainly making a name for himself, along with club member Liam Baird who currently lies fifth in the championship. It’s still all to play for in the Supersport 300 class, and only 51 points cover the top three, Cameron Dawson, Alex Duncan and Johny Campbell, but with 50 points still to play for, anything can happen.

Paul Gartland and a possible appearance by Grant Kennedy lead the local challenge in the Supertwins class, while in the production twins, all eyes will be on Nathan and Andrew Cairns, Liam Brady, Wayne Bussell and the ever improving Lisbellaw man Matthew McGowan.

For spectators who have never been to St. Angelo, it can be found on the Killadeas Road, postcode BT94 2FH. Gates will open to the public at 8am Saturday morning. Admission fee will be £10 for adults, £5 for under 18s, and free for under 12s if accompanied by a paying adult. These prices include a programme of events for the day.
