Big boost on Little screen for Legends race

By Paul Lindsay

Armoy organisers have pulled off a major coup with nationwide TV coverage on Channel 4 for the second year running. It promises to be another fantastic showcase for the north Antrim area and the sport of road racing.

Local broadcaster Graham Little and his team at NPE Media will once again be responsible for the production of the highlights programme, going out on C4 on Sunday, August 9. Graham, formerly with UTV and Sky Sports, was most recently involved in the production of the BBC's Moto GP coverage.

He said: "It's great to see the enthusiasm and professionalism that this local road racing club bring to their event and for it to be recognised by Channel 4 is good news indeed. They have worked tirelessly to promote real road racing. The support that local road racing enjoys, in particular in Armoy, is quite extraordinary. Channel 4's coverage is without a doubt another feather in their cap."

Armoy club chairman William Munnis agreed: "This is superb news for the club and fans alike. It provides many existing and potential new fans with the chance to view the show on a mainstream, terrestial channel, which the whole of the UK can access.

"In addition to the many fans around the world who can't make it to Armoy, there are those of us at the race who appreciate reliving the experience and viewing it from a different perspective."
