The Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club has confirmed that the rider involved in the incident at Church Bends in the 400cc Supersport Race yesterday afternoon (Saturday 25th July 2015) was local man and club member, Ian Simpson.
The Clerk of the Course Bill Kennedy visited Ian and his family this afternoon (Sunday 26 July 2015) in the Royal Victoria Hospital and spoke personally with Ian. Ian has now been moved out of the ICU and into a high dependency unit.

Obviously Ian and his family are personal friends of many within the Club and we send him our very best wishes for a speedy recovery. We are aware that the many local fans and the wider road racing fraternity will be keen to know how Ian is and at this stage we are delighted to say the news is positive.
