North West 200 Race Programme Goes On Sale

Fans urged to snap up the Relentless North West 200's glossy 100-page official Race Programme
As visitors, bike fans and competitors gear up for North West 200 Race Day on 15th May, organisers Coleraine & District Motor Club Ltd are asking spectators to buy a programme to help support the North West which is billed as Ireland's top outdoor sporting event.

As Race Director Mervyn Whyte emphasised, programme sales are an essential source of income for the event organisers: “We urge spectators, fans and visitors to all dig into their pockets and buy a programme online at www.northwest200.org or from one of our hundreds of volunteers who will be located around the Coleraine/Portrush/Portstewart 'triangle' area.”

The Relentless North West 200's glossy 100 page official Race Programme has been produced for the ninth consecutive year by local company Careva Publishing. Competitively priced at £15 (18 Euros) the programme contains all up to date race information including the six race line-up and in depth features on leading riders. The souvenir programme also includes retro articles on Brian Reid, Woolsey Coulter and Ralph Bryans and a detailed lap of the circuit with current lap record holder Steve Plater. Programmes will also be available to purchase from Tesco stores and petrol stations in the 'Triangle' region.

Mervyn Whyte went on to thank Paul Lindsay and his staff from Careva, saying: “I'd like to thank the team for all their hard work and dedication. Each year the programme just gets bigger and better and I absolutely believe this is the best to date with a fabulous line-up of contributors and rider features to ensure fans get a great read and excellent value for money.”

The Relentless International North West 200 in association with Black Horse takes place on Saturday 15th May with roads closing at 10am. Practice sessions take place on Tuesday 11th May (roads close 5pm and re-open at 9.30pm) and on Thursday 13th May (roads close 9.30am and re-open at 3pm). Race Festival Week events begin on Saturday 8th May.

When you consider that the £15 price of the programme is all you pay for a full day's racing at the NW200 then it's pretty good value for money. How much does a ticket to BSB cost nowadays? A bit more then £15 I'd guess. The programme sales are an important revenue stream for the NW200. If everyone who went to the event bought a programme than it would go along way to safeguarding the financial future of the biggest single sporting event in Ireland.
