Additional confirmed entrants for the Molly’s Bar and Restaurant 125/Moto 3 race include Sarah Boyes, Melissa Kennedy, Sean Leonard.
Plus don’t be surprised to see rising stars Paul Jordan and Adam McLean, also in action.
With an overall of 25 riders competing, Bill Kennedy, Armoy Road Races, Clerk of the Course, is delighted to see the class, enjoying a renaissance, he said:
“The 125cc race is where many of our top racers started out. It’s great to see so many entries as it is important to encourage sport at these levels.
Although there are a few less riders for the 250cc it is fundamental that these two races allow the best and brightest of road racing’s future to race on our 3.03 mile circuit.
It’s also great to see local sponsor, Molly’s Bar and Restaurant, and proprietors Sammy and Shelly Mullan, return to sponsor this race for the second year in a row.
It’s rewarding to see the local businesses and communities getting behind us year on year as we continue to grow.”
