Skerries rider Andy Farrell is delighted to announce that he will ride for the rest of the Irish
Championship season and at the Manx Grand Prix, under the banner of Ollies Place in Skerries, onthe Supertwin 650 Kawasaki, and for B & W Hull on the 600 Honda. He will also ride a 125 Honda for Mago Racing at selected meetings.

Following a break for the TT, Andy took both bikes out at Kells and his preparation for the Manx Grand Prix is well under way. Andy has the honour of starting all his races at number 1 and he will ride in the Supertwin, Junior and Senior races.

Ollies Place in Skerries is one of the best known hostelries in North Dublin, and a favourite haunt for bike supporters. Ollie also sponsors a number of fundraising nights, with Andy holding his on Saturday 25th June. Ollie said, “I am delighted to be involved with Andy, I have been supporting him for a number of years and this year I am going all the way sponsoring the Supertwin.

The 600 that Andy will ride is an ex Keith Amor 600 Honda, that both Andy and Brian have totally rebuilt from the frame up. Andy rode for Brian and Wendy on the Supertwin at the Manx in 2015, and he was lying in second place at half way, when he was forced to retire.
Andy “I was approached by Brian and Wendy to ride the bike for them, and I am delighted to be part of the team. Having ridden for Brian and Wendy before, it was an offer that I couldn’t refuse.

I love riding both the twin and the 600, and the Honda will be suited to the tough TT Mountain course. I am also delighted to have Ollies Place as a main sponsor in the Supertwin, and Ollie has been involved with me for the start, and now we have taken it a step further, and we are looking forward to the Manx”

Andy is indebted to the people who help him out and would like to thank the

I am looking forward to the Manx once more, and I hope to have a little more luck this year, smiled the Skerries rider. I would like to thank the guys and girls that help each racing weekend as without the help of all of these people & their businesses, racing here and in the Isle of Man just wouldn't be possible. I'm forever grateful
