The latest positive sponsorship news for the much anticipated first Armoy Road Races since 2019, sees Brap Moto & Park Electrical Services provide combined Senior Support race title sponsorship.
Over the years the Senior Support class has proved the building block for future Irish roads, International roads stars including 2019 Senior TT winner Dean Harrison, Mullingar’s Derek McGee, Ulster GP podium finisher Joe Loughlin and twice Lightweight TT victor Ivan Lintin.
Delighted to be supporting the Senior Support racing at Armoy, Park Electrical Services Jim McConachie stated the following:
“We are delighted to see the Armoy Road Races return this year! As a company, we have been a supporter of this fantastic event for many, many years and with the challenging 16 months we have endured, we agreed to get involved again.
The Armoy Road Races gives so much to the local community and attracts road racing fans from right across Ireland.
Although there may be some restrictions, it won’t be enough to dampen the spirits of the fans who are all eager for July to come around.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the team at Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club for ensuring that the event can go ahead this year whilst ensuring the health and safety of fans, riders and sponsors alike.”
Brap Moto Owner, Davey Chambers provided additional comment:
“Five or six years ago I arrived in Armoy on a Thursday night not returning home until Sunday and the hospitality shown was second to none during that year’s Armoy Road Races.
This is my way of saying thank you to the Club for a great event where all are looked after. I’m an avid road racing fan and lover of motorcycles, given that I trade in classic and collectible motorbikes, so I just had to give my support for such a great event!
Road racing has been sorely missed over the last 16 months due to the coronavirus pandemic, but I’m very excited to see the Armoy Road Races returning in July.
I know it will be a fantastic event and I’m proud to give the Club my support for the Senior Support race. I’m really looking forward to the end of July and to what I know will be a very enjoyable and exciting event!”
Highly respected Armoy Clerk of The Course, Bill Kennedy MBE added:
“We are thrilled to have Park Electrical Services and Brap Moto Davey Chambers on board this year!
Without the support of our sponsors, the Armoy Road Races wouldn’t be able to take place, so we are always extremely grateful.
30th July is coming around incredibly quickly, and the Club has been busy putting the finishing touches together. We also have a very exciting line-up in terms of the entries we have received so far. Some big names in road racing have already signed-up.
The Armoy Road Races 2021, is set to be a very exciting event and we can’t wait to welcome fans and riders in July.”
As stated above, competition at Armoy kicks off on the 30th of July with qualifying, opening races before race day on the 31st which features the iconic showpiece ‘Race of Legends’, won eight times by Michael Dunlop, who organisers hope will be amongst the top quality entry list.
