Speaking recently about backing what’s certain to be this May a compelling opening Supersport race, Proprietor of Tides Restaurant, Gareth Witherow stated:

“The NW200 takes place on our own doorstep each year and we want to be part of it. I’ve grown up in this area and have always been part of the event.

I even sold programmes for the races as a boy! The North West 200 is good for the North coast area and for our business.”

Delighted at gaining another esteemed company to back the 2019 FonaCAB International North West 200 in association with Nicholl Oils, Event Director Mervyn Whyte MBE added:

“The NW200 attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the area each year, helping to support the wonderful restaurants and hotels we have in this part of the world.

It is great to have a local businessman like Gareth becoming involved as a race sponsor for 2019, and we hope Tides restaurant will receive lots of support from race fans during race week.”
