“The Supersport race on the Friday night is always an exciting one and the atmosphere at Armoy is second to none. I can’t wait to see who comes out on top after what I know will be a very tough contest – best of luck to all the riders.”

With programme packages currently on sale and preparations well underway for July’s event, William Munnis, Chairman and Clerk of Course added: On behalf of the Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club, we are delighted to have Andy and his team returning as sponsors this year.

“We truly appreciate the support we receive from all our sponsors because without them, this legendary event simply wouldn’t take place.

“The Supersport class is always one of the most hotly contested races of the entire schedule. Michael Dunlop clinched the top spot on his Yamaha bike setting a new lap record of 105.179mph in last year’s Hilton Car Sales Supersport race and I have no doubt that we’re in for another exhilarating contest this year as this race truly sets the scene for Saturday’s racing.

Entries officially opened recently and we’re already seeing huge names in the world of road racing signing up to compete and we’re expecting even more in the coming weeks.

“Programme packages are also currently on sale via our website. An exhilarating day out for all the family, Armoy Road Races 2024 is certainly an event not to be missed.”

Taking place on Friday, July 26 and Saturday 27, the Armoy Road Races is part funded by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
