Next year's NorthWest 200 80th Birthday race will take place on Saturday, May 16 it has been confirmed by organisers this morning, with anniversary festivities starting a week earlier.

The date had been pencilled for some time but it was made official by the Coleraine Motor Club at a meeting held on Saturday.

Clerk of the Course Mervyn Whyte said: "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 16 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 – May 4 and post North West 200, BSB’s Donington Park Race not happening until Bank Holiday, May 25.”

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.
