North West bosses introduce Thursday Superbike race for 2020

Chiefs at the fonaCAB & Nicholl Oils-backed event have reacted to requests from race teams and competitors, the NW200 organisers have rejigged the schedule to include a Superbike race during the week for the first time.

“This new schedule will allow the Superbikes to compete in a sprint-type race ahead of Saturday’s two longer events, providing more track time and a greater spectacle for everyone involved,” said event director Mervyn Whyte.


“From the spectator’s point of view it will be exciting to see every class and all of the top riders in action on Thursday.”

Practice will take place as per normal with four sessions on Thursday morning after roads are closed at 9.15am. The Supertwins race, normally run on Thursday evening, will now take place after practice in the afternoon before the roads re-open.
