Despite what appears to be priority given to certain media (could be wrong!), Road Racing News can report, with the information available, the following about the North West 200.
FonaCAB/Nicholl Oils remain title sponsors for the Causeway Coast based meeting, which made an exhilarating return last year.
One of the undoubted stars, standout competitors from last May’s action was British Superbike Championship runner-up Glenn Irwin.
Since parting ways with Honda Racing and joining the Paul Bird Motorsport Ducati squad, speculation has been rife as to whether he would be on NW200 duty again.
The answer is firmly yes, with the six-time event winner due to race V4R Panigale Ducati tackle around the Triangle.
No stranger to NW200 success with Ducati power, the fastest TT newcomer in history is confident of adding to an already formidable event CV.
Reminder 2023 fonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200 race week, takes place from the 7th-13th May.
