Kevin Coyne made a surprise appearance at Mondello Park, in County Kildare last Thursday (October 15). He took part in the official practice session that was organised as a to prelude the four championship races that were scheduled on Friday and Saturday.
Coyne has been racing in the HEL Performance British Junior championship this year but tested a Honda CBR 600 ahead of a plan to enter the final four Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship races over the weekend.
However, the meeting was brought to an unexpected close on Thursday evening after the country entered Level Three restrictions.
“The whole idea was to test the bike on Thursday and if we were happy with the pace, to enter the four races on Friday and Saturday but all we can do now is weigh up all our options for next season,” his father Mark said.
This includes a possible attack on the Irish Supersport Cup title or a return the UK. A decision will be made this side of Christmas.
