Rescue Package Plan For Ulster Centre Road Races

Rescue Package Plan For Ulster Centre Road Races

As the fallout to today’s unprecedented news continues, the MCUI (Ulster Centre) has released information regarding plans to get Northern Ireland based road racing back on racing calendars in 2023.

It is hoped a rescue package plan will ensure positive news for the North West 200, Cookstown 100, Tandragee 100, Armoy Road Races and Ulster Grand Prix.

Speaking via a disclosed statement, MCUI (Ulster Centre) Chairman John Dillon stated:

“We cannot afford the premium hikes but nor can we afford to stop the events. Members of the MCUI (UC) board and I are now urgently pursuing a series of options and sources including the launch of a crowd funding campaign.

If racing doesn’t take place in 2023, not only will it be nearly impossible to bring it back in 2024, we will also lose the new riders coming through the ranks.

There has been a groundswell of support from across all sections of the media and it is clear that we have the support of all race fans, making the option of crowd funding a real option to save our sport.

Additionally, it will become increasingly difficult for the MCUI (UC) to provide licences and insurance cover for existing riders to compete overseas (UK mainland, Europe and Worldwide) because of revenue losses.”
