Title sponsor is sought to fuel the highly popular Armoy Road Races

By Robert Jones

North West 200 neighbour, the Armoy Race of Legends meeting in July, is missing one final piece from the event planning puzzle for Race Week 2017 - a new title sponsor.

With sponsors for just about every race, the organising Armoy club believes that there is still a fantastic opportunity for a business to support what they contend is probably the best national road race in Ireland.

Bill Kennedy MBE, Clerk of the Course of Armoy Road Races, said: "We are a very progressive club and year on year, the Armoy Road Races just get bigger and better. We are very lucky as we've some great companies and people involved and we are very happy to have them on board but we are still searching for a title sponsor.

"We are now entering into our ninth year, and the growth that has taken place over those years could not have happened without the valuable support and engagement from all of our sponsors - some of which have been with us from year one.

"We hope to announce our race sponsors soon but we'd really like a title sponsor before that. Title sponsorship receives all sorts of coverage across a number of platforms, from television, radio, national and local media to social media.

"Armoy is continually ranked as a favourite race by not just the road racing elite but many road racing fans across Europe, UK and Ireland and I truly believe this is an excellent opportunity to be part of a fantastic race.

"I would ask if anyone is interested in discussing it, just lift the phone and give me a call. Why not be part of the best national road there is?"

Armoy Bike Week runs from July 23-29 and Bill Kennedy can be contacted on 07734 776 694 or, alternatively, race PR Jackie Logan on 02890 918 675.
