In the latest positive piece of news for the returning Armoy Road Races, Hilton Car Sales have been unveiled as title Supersport race sponsor’s.
Since Armoy’s introduction into the road racing calendar, various action packed, stimulating battles for 600 honours have graced the ‘Race of Legends’.
Expect no different in 2021 with a entry hoped to feature Irish Road Race Champions, International road race winners, up coming stars, next generation roads forces.
Amongst those most excited about next month’s battle for Supersport spoils, is Hilton Car Sales Owner, huge road racing fan Andy Hilton.
Speaking via the AMRRC (Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club) Facebook page, he stated the following about his company’s involvement in one of Irish Road Racing’s most treasured events.
“I’m a massive fan of road racing. I used to travel to all the road races around Northern Ireland as a child with my late father, Davy Hilton and I just loved it. That was the beginning of a life-long obsession with the sport.
When I was first approached to be a sponsor, I jumped at the chance to support this fantastic event. My father was a close friend of Frank Kennedy, one of the Armoy Armada, and I am friendly with Neil Kernohan so it was a no brainer for me to get involved.
It’s no secret that the past year has been extremely challenging but we feel privileged to be able to play our part in ensuring that the event can go ahead this year.
Our business has always been well supported by those in the local community and we wanted to be able to give back to them through our sponsorship of the Armoy Road Races.
On behalf of the staff at Hilton Car Sales, we are really looking forward to the event and to watching some world-class road racing!”
Reminder the 2021 Armoy Road Races which clash with the brand new Oliver’s Mount Festival meeting, takes place from the 30th-31st of July.
