Armoy ‘Race of Legends’ Good To Go In July

Here is another piece of positive Irish road racing news, the 2023 Armoy Road Races will for definite take place in July.

Following news earlier this month, regarding the MCUI Ulster Centre making successful progress obtaining a new insurance quote, it’s all systems go for one of pure road racing’s most praised, loved meetings which was dominated last year by Milenco by Padgetts Davey Todd.

AMRRC (Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club) Chairman William Munnis, stated:

“After a directors’ meeting earlier this week, the Club can confirm that the Race of Legends Armoy Road Races will take place in 2023 on Friday/Saturday 28th and 29th July.

Careful consideration was given regarding the insurance costs and other associated information to run this race.

Caution will be adhered to throughout, to ensure that we can deliver the well run, and high-profile road race that we are known for in Armoy whilst meeting the needs of the event.”

Munnis went onto add that insurance costs still remain high for the ‘Race of Legends’.

“The £30K insurance cost is extensive and many other costs have also risen. We would, however, like to thank the MCUI for all their hard work in achieving a working solution to these insurance issues.

We would also like to thank the local community, residents, our sponsors, riders and the wider road racing community for their support and encouragement throughout – this hasn’t been an easy period and the decision to run the race this year hasn’t been made lightly.”

Adding that a brand-new website centred around Armoy launches soon, he said:

“We will be looking at support packages and these will be launched via our website soon – please do keep an eye out on our social media platforms and other road racing media outlets for further information in due course.

We now begin the detailed planning, at a much later stage, of running a road race at the end of July!”
