The International North West 200 road races celebrated their 90th anniversary in 2019. So many great races and racers have graced the closed roads circuit linking the towns of Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine since the first event on April 20, 1929.

Originally run as a single race over 200 miles, generations of road racers from Duke to Dunlop, have competed around the famous Triangle.

Nowadays the North West attracts the best line-up of competitors of any road race on the planet as they battle wheel to wheel at over 200mph. 2023 is set to produce even more glorious history as Glenn Irwin, who has won the last three NW200 superbike races, and Alastair Seeley, the event’s most successful rider, renew their fierce rivalry.

The chasing pack, led by Peter Hickman, the world’s fastest road racer, and TT winner Dean Harrison will be also chasing superbike glory along the stunning coast road.

Make sure you are part of that history on May 7th - 13th. It is an experience not to be missed.
