The event will be compered by Adrian Logan and Steve Plater in the paddock marquee at 7.30pm next Friday. Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased at the door or via the race ticket office.

The 52-year will be signing copies of his new book, ‘The World According to Foggy’, at Waterstones in Coleraine next Friday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm

Fogarty will also be available for signings before and after Friday night’s chat show in the Hospitality marquee from 6.30pm to 7.30pm and again from 9.30pm to 10.30pm.

During Saturday’s race day, he will be on the grid, where he will rub shoulders with current World Superbike king, Jonathan Rea and present the trophies to the race winners.
