Here's to a very successful and safe North West 200
The North West 200 motorcycle races are a magnificent spectacle as the riders reach mind-boggling speeds on the traditional road circuit. Of course it is dangerous, as a history of deaths prove, but safety precautions are constantly being upgraded.
For the fans and, more particularly, the competitors, it is all about riding to the limit with man and machine in perfect harmony. They do it because they love it and no one can stop them seeking that adrenalin rush or dampen their competitive spirit.
Our hope is that the weather stays fine for the weekend races and that all competitors return safely to the paddock.
