PACEMAKER BELFAST

With deteriorating conditions around the 8.9 mile Triangle circuit, the feature Merrow Hotel and Spa Superbike race of the 2019 fonaCAB International North West 200 in association with Nicholl Oils has been called off after the riders carried out their sighting lap.

Heavy rain and non-racing incidents disrupted the earlier part of the programme.

As conditions improved in the early afternoon a series of brilliant races were run, producing first international road race victories for Davey Todd and James Hillier, a win for veteran Jeremy McWilliams in the J&M Paterson Supertwin race and Glenn Irwin was the popular winner of the Anchor Bar superbike race.

‘We didn’t have much luck during the early part of the day  when we faced very challenging conditions but the teams, competitors and fans all stayed with us and we turned things around.’ Event Director, Mervyn Whyte, said.

‘We have decided in the interests of safety to bring the proceedings to a close now because the conditions have deteriorated once again.  It is disappointing but I want to pay tribute to everyone who has supported us today and braved the weather to cheer on the riders as they put on a fantastic spectacle.’
