The upcoming latest running of the much-cherished Armoy Road Races has attracted a host of top- quality entrants, including TT Privateers Champion, Classic TT winner Jamie Coward.
Set for his first Irish national roads outing since Tandragee in 2014, he’s set to race the KTS Racing Powered by Steadplan/Stanley Stewart Racing YZF R6 Yamaha plus a ZXR 750 Kawasaki steed for the brand-new yesteryear Classic Superbike race encounter.
Joining Coward as an Armoy debutant next month is new Wilson Craig Racing signing, North West 200 winner Pierre Yves Bian.
Racing this weekend at Imatranajo, Yves Bian like Coward has the undeniable potential to take strongly to the technical, flowing, respected Armoy course.
Added confirmed Armoy entrants include Adam McLean, who has switched to R6 Yamaha machinery, Neil Kernohan, Chris Burns, Market Rasen’s Phil Crowe.
WH Racing’s Julian Trummer, Ballymoney’s Darryl Tweed, Dennis Booth, James Rothery and 19 times International road race winner, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb victor Guy Martin.
