The Southern 100 Road Races run through the famous Church Bends at Malew where the bend and the church always provides a great backdrop for an exceptional photograph or two.
On Sunday 10th July before this year’s racing gets underway there is to be a ‘Memorial’ ride out from the club HQ on Castletown by-pass following the course to the church where there will be a short service at 3:00pm.
This is the third year that the Service has taken place at Malew Church, which is proving more popular with riders and fans alike.
The organisers of ‘the friendly races’ decided to dedicate this year’s ‘Ride-Out’ from the Holding Area (at the end of the by-pass) to the Church a ‘Celebration of the lives of the seven road racers who have died this year pursuing the sport they loved.’
For those who would like to join in the ride out, please assemble in the Holding Area at 2:00pm. The Lap will be leaving at 2:30 pm.
Parking will be in the field adjacent to the church as it is for the races and everyone is welcome.
Southern 100 Club Chaplain Canon John Coldwell will lead the service which is to celebrate the Southern 100 International Road Races and remember those who raced and served on the Billown Circuit before the excitement of the races begins for real!
