The Antrim based Castle Mall Shopping Complex, have been unveiled as the new title sponsors for the opening Super Twins race of the FonaCAB Ulster Grand Prix.
In recent times many of the best races to grace the illustrious, iconic Dundrod course, have involved the 650cc Super Twin steeds.
At a glance Ulster GP Super Twin victors from the current decade have included Ryan Farquhar, Ivan Lintin, Dan Cooper and most recently Adam McLean.
Delighted to be supporting next month’s Thursday of race week based Super Twins encounter, Castle Mall Centre Manager Pamela Minford, candidly stated:
“Castle Mall is delighted to be a sponsor of the Ulster Grand Prix, one of the world’s leading International Road Races and an outstanding spectator event.
We also have a family friendly event planned (5th August), with Q Radio that includes trophy and flag making, face painting and the chance to meet some of the world’s fastest road racers during UGP Bike Week.
Everyone will have the chance to win paddock and race passes for the week of action at Dundrod, and we hope everyone will come along to say hello on the day.”

Ulster GP Clerk of The Course, Noel Johnston, provided additional comment:
“It is always a great privilege to welcome a new race sponsor to the Ulster Grand Prix and we are delighted to have yet another local business on-board, with Antrim’s Castle Mall joining us for 2019.
The race organisers try to involve the event and the fantastic road racers we have with us each year in local community activities. The Meet the Riders even at Castle Mall offers a great opportunity for families to have a chat and some fun with their favourite motorcycle racing stars.”
Reminder competitive action at this year’s FonaCAB Ulster Grand Prix, begins in just over two weeks time on the 7th of August with the opening qualifying sessions per class.
