It is the biggest launch of the year- the spectacular Meet the Stars night for the 2016 Vauxhall International North West 200 and this year it will be on March 23 in the Titanic Suite of the Titanic Building, Belfast. Every road race fan will want to be there to meet the biggest names in the sport.

AND IT IS ALL ABSOLUTELY FREE!

Very soon race fans will have the chance to get free tickets to meet the top race stars of the event at a special chat show and social evening

An evening of fun and chat will include a special quiz featuring two teams of riders hosted by Clare McCollum and Stephen Watson. Race fans also have the opportunity to meet their favourite riders for photographs and autographs. These will hopefully include the first rider to enter the 2016 races, Tyco BMW’s new signing, Ian Hutchinson. Already confirmed for the Meet the Stars night are Alastair Seeley, who will be going for a record breaking sixteenth victory on the 8.9 mile Triangle course, 2015 Macau Grand Prix champion, Peter Hickman and last year’s North West 200 Superstock race winner, Lee Johnston. Young guns Dean Harrison and Glenn Irwin will also be amongst the racers walking down the famous Titanic staircase on March 23.

A line-up of some of the top machinery competing in this year’s races will also be on display.

Fans will have an opportunity to meet and discuss the 2016 races with the racers, the North West 200 organisers, the BBC commentary team and all of the sponsors and partners of the event during the evening. Alongside the current stars, riders from North Wests of yesteryear will also be making special guest appearances.
