Northern Ireland’s premier Road Racing Museum could be coming to Ballymoney.

Ulster Unionist Councillor Darryl Wilson said  : A number of weeks ago I submitted a notice of motion calling for a bespoke road racing museum in Ballymoney which would no doubt be a positive addition to our town.
I have been working on this project for over a year now, Ballymoney and the surrounding area is synonymous with road racing and has produced world famous top class riders over the years. The museum should increase tourism numbers for the town and in turn help stimulate the local economy.

The people of Ballymoney are deeply proud of the local road racing legacy which continues to grow to this day. We should showcase the talent which has been, and continues to be at the pinnacle of the sport.

I have been discussing options with Council officials to also retain the existing museum artifacts within the Town Hall. Notice of Motion That Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council open a permanent Motorcycle Road Racing museum in place of the current museum situated in Ballymoney.

The excitement of motorcycle road racing should be celebrated in a permanent display of trophies, leathers, helmets and memorabilia from famous riders past and present. Ballymoney is the obvious location to share some of the fascinating stories of the motorcycle riders who have competed on public roads at the North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix, Isle of Man TT and other famous races. The museum exhibitions should focus on the success of our local riders and the road racing circuits which have provided such memorable races for many people for over a century.
