Race of the South, Walderstown, Ireland 2016.

The Race of the South is long established, probably started in the 1970s. Now held deep in the County Westmeath countryside, the venue is known as Walderstown, a hamlet near Athlone. Located about three-quarters of an hour’s journey west of Dublin airport, this would be Round 7 of this year’s Irish Road Racing Championship, which consists of 13 national events and scheduled for July 9-10. One week later, at the Faugheen road races, Derek Sheilds became the 2016 Irish Superbike Champion.
