This year’s postponed Cookstown 100 will go ahead as planned but with coronavirus restrictions in place.

In effect, the September race will be closed with a limited number of spectators allowed in and with various social distancing measures in force.

“We as a club would prefer to have our event run as normal, but in these trying times, we have to make various decisions and make changes for this year at least, to try and bring some road racing for the riders and spectators in 2020 all be it in limited circumstances,” said a club statement.

“But we will continue to work with various organisations and keep the public up to date with any decisions made.

“Riders will be aware their entryies for April will carry forward to September date, and for anyone else who wishes to send their entry’s in, the closing date will be the 18th of July.

“As a club, we will remain committed to bringing some racing in 2020, until we are told otherwise.”
