DEREK MCGEE

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

The Mullingar Mis­sile was the Man of the Meet­ing after se­cur­ing two Ir­ish cham­pi­onships with vic­tory in the Su­per­twins, plus a win and sec­ond place in the two Su­per­sport events on his B&W Kawasaki.

He was the fastest new­comer at the re­cent South­ern 100 but sat out this year’s TT be­cause of a lack of bud­get.

“The TT is no place to be if you don’t have the money to do it right,” the 31-year-old said. “I wanted to have a good strong sea­son at home this year and go back in 2018.”

Mcgee has taken nu­mer­ous Ir­ish Na­tional wins but a lack of fund­ing has thwarted his progress. At Armoy he had to ride his ZX-6R in­stead of the ZX-10R as his team doesn’t have a wet weather map for the big bike’s ECU.
