One wheeled motorsport! A first for Kerry Motorsport News’ coverage

Kerry Motorsport News covers all aspects of motorsport – once there is a Kerry connection we will run a story.

We cover four-wheel action, three wheel action (the sidecars from Mondello Park for example) and two-wheeled motorsport.

But in a first for Kerry Motorsport News, we now cover one-wheeled motorsport too.

This is the story of John Paul O’Brien. He lives in West Limerick but his mother is Beale and he works for Liebherr Container Cranes in Fossa so that that is just about enough to consider him one of our own.

Two weeks ago he took his BMW S1000RR to the World Wheelie Championships at Elvington Airfield in the UK.  

There, he managed a wheelie for a kilometre, breaking the beam at 235 k/mh and that gave him second in class and fourth overall.

So there you have it, we cover one-wheeled motorsport too!
