fonaCAB are delighted to be the Event Sponsor of the 2019 Ulster Grand Prix. I love bike racing – I have done ever since I was a child and have many happy memories over the years of my times at
Northern Irelands great races. From the biggest like The Ulster Grand Prix and The North West 200 to short circuits like Kirkiston and Aghadowey they all have their own unique challenges. Many older fans like me will have enjoyed “The Roller Coaster” at Temple or “The Jumps” at Carrowdore. Each circuit has something special for race fans and we’re hoping that this year, if the conditions are favourable, The Ulster Grand Prix can win back the title of the World’s fastest Road Race from the Isle of Man TT. Regardless of this, we should be proud to have the Ulster Grand Prix as one of Northern Ireland’s and the racing world’s premier events. It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase this historic and challenging circuit, but also a platform for our local teams and riders, many
of which we’re honoured to support.
To get us to the position of being the largest taxi company on the Island of Ireland and one of the largest in the UK has taken significant investment in time, people, technology and training. We do everything in our power to make sure that each of our 100,000 bookings per week is delivered with the same attention to detail and professionalism as the one before. It’s this commitment and investment in ourselves that we see in many of the sporting teams and individuals we’re delighted to lend our support to.
fonaCAB are one of the biggest investors in local sport in Northern Ireland and are at the forefront in our support of bike racing. In 2019 we have increased our commitment further as the title sponsors of both the Ulster Grand Prix and the North West 200. We’ve also got behind established racers and up and coming talent from the Northern Irish scene such as fifteen year old Scott Swann who has a bright future in racing ahead of him. Whether they’re racing or not, we’ll always be cheering on Lee Johnston, Glenn Irwin, Simon Reid, Gerard Kinghan, Jeremy McWilliams and Paul Jordan as fonaCAB sponsored riders and getting behind Michael Dunlop through our support of Team Tyco but what we really want is an exciting, enjoyable and incident free week’s racing for all.
We wish every rider, team and spectator a safe and successful Bike Week and if we can be of any service at any time in and around the Greater Belfast area, just give us a call – 02890 333 333. William McCausland Managing Director fonaCAB
