Eugene Laverty ties the knot

1 of 1

Aspar Ducati racer Eugene Laverty has tied the knot with long time partner Pippa Morson in a star-studded ceremony at Ireland’s Dromoland Castle.

Pippa and the 29 year old Laverty, who first met while she was working as an MCN Girl during his time in the British Supersport series, wed in the stunning venue on Ireland’s West Coast in the presence of friends, family, and many of Laverty’s former sparring partners from the World Superbike championship.

After a hectic 18-event race season and six months of wedding preparations, the newlyweds will remain at the castle for a further day of relaxation before returning to their Monaco home for the rest of December.

Laverty’s recent injuries – a fractured wrist and dislocated shoulder sustained during a testing accident at Jerez less than a fortnight ago – put the brakes on the anticipated honeymoon trip to St Lucia which they will reschedule for later in 2016.
