North West 200 stars ride in to Donnelly Vauxhall Dungannon
Posted on: 9th Jan 2013
Two of the biggest stars of the 2013 Vauxhall International North West 200 will be riding into Donnelly Vauxhall Dungannon for a special 'Meet the Riders' event.
As the new title sponsors of Ireland's top motorcycle event, Vauxhall will be giving everyone the chance to meet Michael Rutter and Ryan Farquhar during a special visit to The Donnelly Group's Vauxhall showroom at 7pm on Wednesday 16th January 2013.
Geoff Lamont from Donnelly Vauxhall Dungannon said:
"This is a great opportunity for people to come along and meet some of the best North West riders. The race is one of the highlights of the sporting year as it's one of the world's fastest road races."
"Both men will be available for autographs and photographs as well as talking about the year ahead. We're really looking forward to having them join us at Donnelly Vauxhall as well as the big Race Week itself in May."
Guests will also be able to view the Vauxhall range on display including a one day only preview of the New Adam.
Michael Rutter is the second most successful North West rider of all-time, winning his 13th race in the Superstock event in 2012.
The English rider also joined the KMR Kawasaki squad run by local hero Ryan Farquhar that scored a brilliant 1-2-3 in the Vauxhall sponsored Supertwins race last year.
The Dungannon man has now retired from racing himself but he will be back at this year's North West managing a new team.
Michael will be more determined than ever in 2013 to chase down the all-time wins record on his new Honda TT Legends superbike and Ryan will be trying to guide his team to further success against the bigger factory squads.
Guests to the state of the art Donnelly Vauxhall showroom at the M1 Motor Complex in Dungannon will also have the chance to have their picture taken with the racers on the official superbike of the North West 200, the 2013 CBR1000RR Fireblade, which will be unveiled in its new TT Legends livery for the first time in the Northern Ireland.
Lucky winners will have the chance to win Vauxhall North West 200 prizes throughout the event and race supremo Mervyn Whyte, MBE, will be there on the day to answer any queries for spectators.
With up to 5 year['s 0% finance across the Vauxhall range you might even be tempted to drive to Portrush in a new car in May!
