Easter opening: at the office and on the track!

It’s going to be a busy Easter weekend we help you all out with your motorbike insurance whilst keeping an eye on Principal-sponsored Caolán Irwin’s progress over at Silverstone. Read on for our holiday opening hours and a quick Caolán catch-up.

Caolan IrwinThere’s a busy weekend ahead for our motorbike insurance team as well as Principal Insurance Ireland sponsored racing star, Caolán Irwin.

Caolán , a former Young Irish Racer of the Year and Junior Superstock champion, will make his debut in the Quattro Group British Supersport Championship.

The 23-year old will hit Silverstone to cement his growing reputation  as one of, not just Ireland’s, but Europe’s fast rising stars of the track.

A bit of R&R

Riding for R&R Racing, whom he joined mid-season last year, Caolán says “It will be a big step for both myself and the team, but the continuity with the crew will be a positive to ensure that we hit the ground running.”

Sheds 4 BikersOur CEO, Aly Dixon, is proud to be able to lend further support, saying: “We’ve been behind Caolán for a few seasons now and delighted to see him progressing into Supersport. We realise that this is a big step up for him, in a number of ways, so we are increasing our backing for 2022.

Great job

“Caolán always does a great job for us and really represents us well both on and off track and he is really deserving of support.

“The British Supersport Championship has a massive following in Ireland due to the large number of Irish riders competing in it, so its great for us to be involved with a rider who can compete at such a high level in the series.”

We, of course, wish Caolán all the best on his debut as he continues his journey towards the BSB championship. He’s promised to keep us updated over the weekend, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest news, direct from the paddock.
