North West 200: May

The North West 200 is Ireland’s largest outdoor sporting event, and the event's first organisers could not have imagined how the event would grow over the years. In 1964, the North West 200 event was handed over to the Coleraine & District Motor Club which continues to run the event today. In 2007, around two million people logged on from nearly every part of the world to watch what has become Ireland’s largest sporting event and one of the world’s fastest road races. - See more at: http://www.northwest200.org/about-nw200.aspx#sthash.5dJ5jndN.dpuf
