Northern Ireland firms are firmly in the fast lane with the World’s Fastest Road Race
The Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix has confirmed a stellar sponsor line up for this year’s event which will take place at the world famous Dundrod Circuit in August.
Plant Lubrication NI has been confirmed as the overall sponsor of the Dundrod 150 Challenge and Dundrod 150 national race.
The Dundrod 150, which will take place on Thursday 6th August, is further supported by local firms Belfast Honda Motorcycles, SOS Restoration, Totalis Solutions and Topaz Airport Road Service Station who will each sponsor individual race categories.
The Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix, which will take place on Saturday 8th August, will be backed by a number of local firms sponsoring individual race categories including Lidl, Wash ‘n’ Dash, Maxwell Freight Services, McKinstry Skip Hire, Barron Transport and IFS Global Logistics.
President of the Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club, James Courtney said: “We are delighted to have the support of so many local companies, without whom the race wouldn’t be what it is today.
“The Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix has become an important part of Northern Ireland’s culture and brings a significant amount of tourism and business to our local economy.
“It is only through continued investment and reinvestment from our sponsors that we have been able to build upon the race year-on-year.
“We’ve been working hard to improve the fan experience at Dundrod and this year we believe we’ve taken it to another level. We intend to have the biggest and best Bike Week yet with improved camping facilities, bigger grandstands and a full line up of top-class entertainment to keep everyone entertained throughout the week.
“None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the backing of private sponsors. The Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club is extremely grateful for the incredible loyalty and support they have each shown us over the years.”
