Kerry’s youngest motorcycle racer, Alex O’Grady is preparing for his race debut at the end of April.  

The 17-year-old Ballyduff racer sampled his new Suzuki SV at a recent test session at Mondello Park.  

He has committed to the Production Twins class in the Dunlop Master Irish Superbike Championship that gets underway at the County Kildare track on April 23 and 24. 

He will join his brothers Dean and Jack who are already Dunlop Masters regulars.

Dean will move up into the Superbike Pro class for the year head after a promising 2021 in the second division Cup class. He will race the same Kawaski ZX10 that he used to finish second in last year’s title race.  

Jack will continue in the Supersport Cup class on his Suzuki GXR 600. 

“I am not nervous, but I am very excited for the season ahead,” said Alex.  “I will do as many rounds as I can and the boys [his brothers] are very happy to see me out.”  

Alex will face fellow Kerry racer, Robert O’Connell in the Production Twins class. He has bought defending champion Darragh Crean’s Suzuki for the new season after the Tralee man elected to move up to the Super Twins class on a new Aprilia.
