Come and Experience Some of the Very Best Road Racing in the World and Much More

Northern Ireland is the home of motorcycle racing on closed public roads and every May the beautiful Causeway Coast plays host to one of the sport’s most spectacular events.

The Vauxhall International North West 200 attracts the finest line-up of road racers of any race on the planet, drawing thousands of visitors to the superfast 8.9 mile circuit that links the towns of Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine. Hitting top speeds of over 200mph, racers like Guy Martin, Michael Dunlop and John McGuiness thrill 85,000 fans who come to enjoy the weeklong festival of speed on roads that locals normally use to make their way to work to every other day of the week.

The North West 200 has become a mecca for motorcycle fans, offering everyone the opportunity to explore the history of road racing alongside enjoying the high speed thrills of a week of racing action on Thursday evening and Saturday. The North West 200 is a must see event for everyone, confirmed petrol heads and new recruits alike!
