Tyco Suzuki's recently crowned Southern 100 Solo Champion and Billown Circuit outright lap record holder Guy Martin is set to race at the Armoy Road Races on July 26 and 27.
Thirty-one-year-old Guy Martin has raced at the Armoy Road Races for the past two years and will be entering the SGS International Open Race along with the RiverRidge Recycling ‘Race of the Legends’.
Narrowly missing out on a podium on the Superbike at the TT, Bill Kennedy, Clerk of the Course, Armoy Road Races thinks that Guy will be looking for a win at Armoy
He said: “We’ve just received Guy Martin’s entry for the Armoy Road Races from the Moneymore based Tyco Suzuki team.
“We are absolutely delighted that he is joining us for a third year. Guy worked hard at the TT but he narrowly missed the podium on one or two occasions. Last year at Armoy he was on the podium twice behind Michael Dunlop, and I’ve no doubt he’ll be wanting the prime position this year, particularly after last week’s performance at the Southern 100.’
Lincolnshire rider, Guy Martin, will be joining local rider, William Dunlop and Dubliner Derek Shiels at the Armoy Road Races.
“This is shaping up to be a really good event and I am confident that we are going to see some exceptional road racing again this year. The races are nearly upon us and it’s going to be just great,” concluded Bill Kennedy.
The Armoy Road Race is part funded by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and is part sponsored by Moyle District Council.
Bike Week 2013 is from July 21 to 27.
Armoy Road Races programmes are available from Friday, July 19 and cost £10.
