NW200 - Date set for 2009 Races

Coleraine and District Motor Club officials have confirmed that the 2009 International North West 200 will take place on Saturday 16th May with Race Week festivities commencing on Saturday 9th May. The date had been pencilled in on the motorbike racing calendar for several weeks and was officially verified at the M.C.U.I. (U.C.) AGM held on Saturday past (8th November).

Said NW200 Clerk of Course Mervyn Whyte MBE, "Whilst planning is already underway for next year's 80th anniversary event, I'm delighted that our provisional date has now been rubber stamped and we can really go to town on promoting our Race Week and Race Day programmes at a global level.

"May 16th is a perfect date and will suit all UK and Ireland competitors giving teams ample time to prepare for the North West, with BSB's Oulton Park taking place on Bank Holiday Monday - 4th May and post North West 200, BSB's Donnington Park Race not happening until Whit Bank Holiday, Monday 25th May 2009."

The Coleraine Club's organising committee have already met with Coleraine Council officials to put in place an exciting week of activities and events to help celebrate the North West 200's 80th birthday and the event's official launch will take place on 8th January 2009 at the Belfast Waterfront Hall.
