The Vauxhall International North West 200 is delighted to have the Bayview Hotel, Portballintrae as a race sponsor for 2017. The popular local venue will support the Superstock event on Thursday evening.

“It is a privilege to welcome NW200 enthusiasts to the hotel, all keen to soak up the adrenaline fuelled atmosphere.”
“In attracting race fans and visitors to the North Coast our races return the support we get from local businesses and the Causeway Coast and Glens Council every year.” NW200 Event Director Mervyn Whyte MBE said.
“It is a partnership that benefits everyone- the races, the local borough and Northern Ireland as a whole and we are very grateful to have the Bayview Hotel’s support for 2017.”
Trevor Kane has a long history of supporting motorcycle racing through sponsorship of the Armoy races and William Dunlop in particular.
“With sporting exposure for Northern Ireland on the increase we have established ourselves as one of the best places to successfully host major events such as the North West 200.” Trevor said.
“Each year the event continues to grow and with the introduction of live streaming the races are beamed to a larger audience than ever showcasing our beautiful coastline worldwide.”
