The wait is finally over as the 2015 Armoy Road Races get underway this week.

Tyco BMW rider Guy Martin is set to headline an all-star line-up at next weekend’s Armoy Race of Legends, with Michael and William Dunlop, Keith Amor, and KMR Kawasaki riders Ryan Farquhar and Jeremy McWilliams all set to join him.

And with full grids of racing, clerk of course Bill Kennedy says they’re prepared for a day of fast and close action at the Country Antrim circuit.

“Last year’s Man of the Meeting Guy Martin comes here in terrific form as does his Tyco team mate William Dunlop; throw in his brother Michael back riding a BMW, Dean Harrison on the Mar-Train Yamaha and both Derek Sheils and Derek McGee, all coming here on the back of wins, coupled with regulars like Ryan Farquhar, Scotland’s Keith Amor on the Rig Deluge bikes and East Yorkshire’s James Cowton, the Supersport races, Supertwins, Open and the Race of Legends races are all wide open.”

“The Supertwins is always a hugely popular race at Armoy, and it’s great to see Ryan Farquhar return with his infamous SGS team which includes former MotoGP rider Jeremy McWilliams. Ryan has always been a keen supporter of the Armoy Road Races from day one, having come to Armoy even before our first race and offering invaluable advice from a road racer’s perspective. It was without a doubt instrumental in the formation of the circuit.”

Bike Week runs from Sunday 19th until Saturday 25th July with the SGS International Race of Legends featuring on the Saturday.
