Welcome to David Haire Racing
David is a first class honors graduate teacher of Queens University Belfast, Northern Ireland and now Master student of developmental psychology and social sciences at Åbo Akademi, Finland.
Dedicating himself to his academic achievements, he has also dreamt and worked very hard to achieve goals in his motorcycle racing career.
David Haire and Rope Access Works Ltd set sights on new USBK title and the International NW200 races in 2018.
David Haire, a former student of Queens University Belfast, and now full-time teacher and master student in Vaasa, Finland at Abo Akademi, has returned to Northern Ireland, solely setting his sights on winning the all new Ulster Superbike Championship in 2018, as well as top finishes in the International NW200 superstock races.
The former double Irish Supersport Champion, Adelaide Masters Supersport champion, Enkalon trophy winner, Davy Wood trophy winner and Norman Brown trophy winner, will campaign the 2018 season onboard a newly purchased BMW S1000RR, built and prepared by himself to superstock specification, through Charles Hurst Motorcycles.
Already with news of his return, director James Chignell of Rope Access Works Ltd has teamed up with David, becoming a main sponsor towards his 2018 title campaign.
Despite taking a sabbatical from the sport for two years, Haire who started racing as a young 16 year old, still feels he has some unfinished business.
David Haire “Truly fantastic news! Despite being away from racing for almost two years, I feel refreshed, fit and healthy to complete the task at hand. Just as James has established Rope Access Works with a great reputation on being able to provide solutions to complex problems, I hope together we can overcome the competition, both in the USBK championship, and International NW200 superstock races to take top results. Thank you to James, as well as all my product sponsors, friends and family. Looking at the exciting USBK Series, In my opinion, between the fall out with the Northern and Southern centre, as well as the news and development of the race circuit near Coalisland, this has made others become more involved in the new championship, and with the encouraging help and work from the MCUI, along with the various motorcycle clubs, it can only be a positive. As for myself, my home is now in Finland with my girlfriend Francine. However, I am racing to show my support for local racing and the new USBK championship, as well as family and friends, even if its only for this season.”
David will also wildcard at three selected British Superbike rounds in the national superstock 1000 championship, where he will be looking for top finishes. His seasonal campaign kicks off at the Easter weekend of the Enkalon Trophy races, Bishopscourt.
