IMPROVED TOILET FACILITIES AND ACCESS FOR DISABLED VISITORS TO THE 2019 fonaCAB INTERNATIONAL NORTH WEST 200 IN ASSOCIATION WITH NICHOLL OILS
The organisers of the 2019 fonaCAB International North West 200 in association with Nicholl Oils have been working with the Mae Murray Foundation to improve access and toilet facilities for spectators with a disability at the startline grandstand.
A Mobiloo toilet facility will be sited beside the disabled viewing area of the main Start line grandstand.
The service will be in place on the Thursday and Saturday of race week beside the dedicated platform where the front row of the stand- seats A114 – A152- are clearly marked for disabled bookings.
These seats are reserved for friends, family or carers accompanying wheelchair users or person of restricted mobility. There is no charge for the wheelchair user, only for those accompanying them.
