Colas Billown Course Set Up Commences
With just twenty-eight days until the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races gets underway, Southern 100 Racing are busy preparing the Colas Billown Course for the frantic action which commences on Friday 27th May.
As in previous year’s the race organisers are very appreciative of the assistance provided by Southern Young Farmers who place most of the course safety equipment out around the 4.25-mile course and will after the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 Road Races in July remove the ‘furniture’ for storage until the set up starts for the 2023 races.
Southern 100 Racing also very much appreciate all the other volunteers who turn up at the various work parties to ensure that the Colas Billown Course is in pristine condition for our three road races between May and July, including Beach Buddies who conduct a course inspection prior to each of the road races removing any unwanted litter found.
Club Chairman and Race Secretary, George Peach said: ‘The Southern 100 Club are greatly indebted to all the volunteers who give up their time to help in setting up the course, and especially too the Southern Young Farmers who carry out all the heavy work using their tractors and other equipment in the course set-up and later the strip down.
’After our enforced sabbatical over the past two years it is good to see the Colas Billown Course coming to life in readiness to welcome the riders, fans and enthusiasts for the first of our three road races this year, and I can’t thank our helpers enough for giving up their time and energy.’
