Michelin have been announced as the official sponsor of the Senior Support Race 2 at the legendary Armoy Road Races next month.

With a long-standing commitment to supporting racers, Michelin have established a place at the centre of racing and now with a selection of products designed to produce the ultimate racing performance, Armoy will provide the perfect showcase.

James Dimmock, Marketing Manager Motorcycle Europe North, said: "The team here at Michelin are proud to support the Armoy Road Races in 2017. Having visited the event last year, we were impressed with the exhilarating action and highly professional organisation - a credit to the club behind it.

"Partnering with the races is a perfect fit for our brand. Working alongside our dealers in the area we have already helped to nurture some exciting new racing talent and now sponsoring the race itself we continue to support the development of the sport and the passionate racers."

Bill Kennedy MBE, Chairman and Clerk of the Course, said: "It is really good to have Michelin on board for 2017. We are delighted to have such a highly recognisable brand involved."

Bike Week runs from Sunday, July 23 until Saturday, July 29 with races taking place on Friday and Saturday, culminating in the Roadside Kia 'Race of Legends'. The Armoy Road Races are part funded by Tourism Northern Ireland and the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
