Armoy Latest: Roadside Garages Sponsor Supersport Race 2

Prominent pure road racing supporters Roadside Garages, have formed a new partnership with the Armoy ‘Race of Legends’, title sponsoring this week’s second Supersport race.

Leading contenders for middleweight class honours will include Milenco by Padgetts Davey Todd, BE/RK Racing’s Michael Browne, JMcC Roofing Racing’s Adam McLean.

KTS Racing Powered by Steadplan’s Jamie Coward, PreZ Racing’s Paul Jordan and high-profile Armoy returnee, Dean Harrison astride the Boyce Precision Engineering/Russell Racing Yamaha.

Speaking recently about taking on Supersport Race 2 title sponsor reigns, Roadside Garages David Boyd, stated:

“Roadside KIA is a local company serving the local community, and this is our way of helping the wider community as well as being involved in one of the best road races there is.

We are only too delighted to be able to support the Armoy Road Races as the Race of Legends epitomises all that is great about this sport.”

Chairman of the Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club, William Munnis added:

“I’ve remarked before on the excruciating cost of everything, not just the insurance, but everything from toilets and showers to infrastructure – the costs have increased across every aspect of the races.

Therefore, now more than ever does every penny count and without sponsors stepping forward, like Roadside Garages, the races just could not run.

Roadside also provides us with course officials cars, and we have event vans supplied from William Kennedy of Curragh Van Sales, Hallidays of Bushmills and Ballymoney Tyre Services.

These are needed throughout race week, allowing us to move bikes and equipment quickly around the course, particularly during the race.”

“Many others help whether it is sponsoring a bale or buying an advert in the programme, and of course, the vitally important event programme package. I’ve been told that there are many from the locality buying programme packages.

The Club is immensely thankful for each and every-one who helps and contributes to the races. I’m very grateful and even slightly astounded that many have stepped forward to help in their small or not so small way.

When we all come together, the Club, riders, fans and sponsors, then only do we actually make the Armoy Road Races and the Bayview Hotel Race of Legends happen.

So, thank you all but I would just say, you can still buy a programme package – every penny does count!”
