The Irish Motorbike Awards returned in Belfast this weekend for the first time since 2020 and Glenn Irwin celebrated winning the Irish Motorcyclist of the Year and Short Circuit Rider of the Year following his runner-up position in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship and his achievements on the roads.

Reigning Quattro Group British Supersport Champion Jack Kennedy was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award after becoming the most successful rider in the Championship after his title-winning 2022 season with Mar-Train Yamaha.

James McManus claimed the Young Rider of the Year Award after he was crowned the HEL Performance British Junior Supersport Champion last season.

The Special Recognition Award was also presented to the family of the late Keith Farmer, as the evening also paid tribute to the multiple British Champion.
