Eyes on Jeremy McWilliams as he heads host of big names at Tandragee 100

By Paul Lindsay

Former Grand Prix winner Jeremy McWilliams will sample the delights of the Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100 course next month having agreed a deal with the promoting North Armagh Club to race Roger Winfield's 500cc Paton in the Classic race.

McWilliams will also perform a parade lap with Dungannon's Ryan Farquhar aboard Roger Winfield's 1300cc Harris F1 machines.

KMR Kawasaki team owner Farquhar will also be back in Superbike action at Tandragee - which takes place on May 1 and 2 - along with old adversary Keith Amor who should feature on the Rig Deluge BMW S1000RR.

William Dunlop is another top name on the entry list but will not be bringing German machinery, opting to campaign his CD/IC Racing R6 Yamaha while his Tyco BMW team is at Oulton Park for round three of the British Superbike Championship.

The entry list at Tandragee stands at a whopping 350, with 50 newcomers set to enjoy the iconic Armagh circuit. With a prize fund of over £10,000, it's guaranteed to be a great weekend of racing.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Richard Britton's passing and as a tribute four of his race bikes will be ridden around the course and be on display in the paddock.
