Southern 100 Podium Bottles Raise £1,200.00 for Riders Benevolent Funds

Southern 100 Racing are pleased to announce that an amazing £1,200.00 was raised on the Auction of the 2023 Southern 100 Road Races Podium Celebration Bottles.

The total amount has been split equally between the ACU Benevolent Fund and the Irish Injured Riders Welfare Fund. Both organisations assist riders and families when the need arises and as race promoters, we are grateful for all the excellent service they provide year-round.

None of the money raised would have been possible without the generosity of Foraging Vintners of Port Erin, who hand craft the aperitif and provide the Celebration Bottles and Magnums for presentation to each race podium during both the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races and the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Southern 100 Road Races.

Chairman and Race Secretary, George Peach said: ‘We, as a club are indebted to Ian Swindells of Foraging Vintners for his kindness in donating to Southern 100 Podium Bottles for fund raising after the cancellation of the 2023 Southern 100 Races.

‘We are also grateful to our webmaster Callum Staley for setting up and running the auction which resulted in the excellent amount raised which has gone to two charities close to all involved in motorcycle sport.’
