Announced today by event organisers, AMRRC (Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club), Bayview Hotel will once again provide title sponsorship for the highly acclaimed Armoy Road Races.
Celebrating twelve years since the first closed roads event at Armoy, the hugely popular, respected meeting touted by many as the leading national roads event within the UK, has each year since 2009, grew in terms of popularity, prominence and prestige.
Bayview Hotel, who have since 2009, backed each year an individual race at Armoy, are delighted to provide again title sponsorship for an event which is synonymous with the famous ‘Armada’ group of racers from the 70’s, which included the legendary 26 times TT winner, 63 times International Road Race winner Joey Dunlop.
Throughout the past 10 years at Armoy, the Dunlop name has continued to star, excel. Last year saw Michael Dunlop push through the pain barrier, show herculean resolve on route to an eighth Race of Legends triumph.
