Additional information for 2019 Road Closing

The Road Races (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2014 has now been approved by the Northern Ireland Assembly and received Royal Assent.  The changes to the road closing legislation now give the organisers of the International North West 200, in exceptional circumstances, the ability to move a practice or race day, either one day forward or one day back, giving 24 hours notice to the Department for Infrastructure.

Should extreme weather be forecast, the 2019 contingency days could be:  Wednesday 15th May and Friday 17th May 2019.

In lieu of using one of the above full contingency days, organisers may also extend the road closing times on Tuesday 14th and Saturday 18th May 2019 as follows:

Existing Road Closing Contingency

Tuesday

9.15am - 3.00pm5.00pm - 9.00pm

Saturday

9.15am - 7.00pm7.00pm - 9.00pm

Any subsequent amendment to the race week schedule will be advised to the public via the International North West 200 website, BBC NI TV & Radio and the NW200 Facebook and Twitter feed.

All those who could be affected are reminded that any variation in race or practice schedule will only happen due to extreme weather conditions.  Ticket holders and those attending all race week events are advised to keep up to date with any changes announced.
