“We are delighted that the village of Armoy will once again be filled with the sounds of road racers at the end of July.
The events of the past year have been incredibly challenging. As a Club it means the world to us to be able to host an event that we know is so popular with road racing fans right across Ireland – we feel privileged and extremely excited.
The support we have received from fans, and in terms of local businesses coming forward to offer support and sponsorship in recent weeks, has been so heartening.
We are so pleased that the Bayview Hotel has decided to come back on board this year as title sponsors for the Race of Legends.
There will be some restrictions in place at this year’s event including a reduced number of spectators however, we still expect the event to be as thrilling as it has been in previous years. We can guarantee plenty of fun and excitement and we can’t wait for July to come around!”
Reminder the eagerly 2021 Armoy Road Races which clashes with the inaugural Oliver’s Mount Festival takes place from the 30th-31st of July.
