The 2019 International North West 200 race week will take place on 12th – 18th May, with the main race day on Saturday 18th.
The 2019 event will be a special year for the Coleraine and District Motor Club, the event organisers, as this will be the 90th anniversary of the North Coast races.
‘We are planning some very special events for our birthday celebrations.’ Event Director, Mervyn Whyte said.
‘Over the coming months we will provide more details about how we will be marking this landmark occasion as we once again see the best line-up of any road race in the world on the International North West 200 grid.’
The 2018 event was a huge success for Whyte and his team as Glenn Irwin won both superbike races on the PBM/Be Wiser Ducati in front of sun kissed crowds. The event’s most successful rider, Alastair Seeley, claimed his 24th Triangle course victory with a hat-trick of triumphs on the Tyco BMW and EHA Yamahas and Peter Hickman also claimed his maiden North West win on the Smith’s BMW.
