Good luck to all the Forcefield supported riders who are taking part in one of the most exciting road race meetings of the year, the Northwest 200.

Lining up to take part in the historic event are road race specialists Jamie Hamilton, Simon Andrews and Gary Johnson as well as BSB regular Karl Harris and the official Kawasaki team Quattro Plant Kawasaki who will be running an extra special Forcefield livery on their bikes for the Northwest 200, next month’s Isle of Man TT and the rest of the BSB season.

The North West 200 is held each May in Northern Ireland. The course is a street circuit, made up of public roads running between the towns of Portstewart, Coleraine and Portrush (the Triangle) is one of the fastest in the world, with speeds in excess of 200 mph (320 km/h).

It is the largest annual sporting event in Ireland, with the race weekend attracting over 150,000 visitors from all over the world.

Originally intended to be held somewhere in the north west of Ireland and organised by the City of Derry & District Motor Club, the initial event was moved to the north coast but the name was never changed. Since 1964 the event has been organised by the Coleraine and District Motor Club.
