CD Racing’s Derek Sheils is a non-starter at this weekend’s 54th Around-A-Pound Tandragee 100 in Co Armagh.

The Dublin man was in terrific form at last Saturday’s Irish national road racing season-opener at Cookstown, taking victories in the Supersport and Superbike classes, but Chris Dowd’s team has opted to skip Tandragee this year and won’t be in action again until the Vauxhall International North West 200, which takes place from May 13-17.

Team boss Dowd told the News Letter: “We’ve just decided to give Tandragee a miss because last year we had a few issues with the organisers that we weren’t happy about, so we’ll just let it go by and go straight to the North West 200.
