MRA Notification of Cancellation
The Motorcycle Racing Association were scheduled to promote the Eighth and Final round of the Ulster Youth & Adult Quadcross and Sidecar Championships on the reserve date of Saturday 8th October at Tinkerhill Newry.
Unfortunately due to the recent heavy rain and with more rain forecast for the coming days it has very reluctantly been decided that with an already Water-logged Circuit, it will not be possible to promote this final Championship round.
As a result the 2022 Ulster Championship Positions in the various Classes of this Series will now be determined by the Championship Points Standings at the end of round number Seven. ( Promoted by the North of Ireland Club on 9th July at Robinson’s MX Park Claudy )
All entries already placed and paid for, will be refunded to competitors in the in the coming days.
Final MRA Ulster Quad & Sidecar Championship Round.
The Mourne Motor Cycle Club will host the final round of the MRA Ulster Youth and Adult Quadcross along with the Ulster Sidecar Championships at Seaforde Motocross park on Saturday 20th August.

David Cowan holds third position with 363 points to date. With 75 points still up for grabs in the final three races of this Championship season the racing in this class will surly be action packed throughout.
In the Quad Semi-Expert Class, Banbridge teenager Josh McKnight with 469pts, has already won this Championship Class at the last round. With a 78 Point advantage he can not now be caught by Jack Young who is in second position on 391pts and Shane Hunter rounds out the top three in this class with 260 points.
In the Adult Clubmans Class Lisburn’s Dean Young with 387 points to date, gives him a 39 point advantage over second placed Mitchell Adams on 348pts. While Stephen Kelly is currently close in third position on 338pts.
In the Youth Y1 Automatic Class Young Banbridge competitor Jamie Cowan secured the MRA Championship title in this class at the previous seventh round of the series.
