Statement by the Directors of the Armoy Motorcycle Motor Racing Club; by Chairman William Munnis.
“After a directors’ meeting earlier this week, the Club can confirm that the Race of Legends – Armoy Road Races will take place in 2023 on Friday/Saturday 28th and 29th July.
“Careful consideration was given regarding the insurance information and other associated costs to run this race. Caution will be adhered to throughout, to ensure that we can deliver the well run, and high-profile road races that we are known for in Armoy, as well as meet the financial needs of the event.
“The £30K insurance cost is extensive, along with many other event costs that have also risen. We would, however, like to thank the MCUI for all their hard work in getting a working insurance solution. We would also like to thank the local community, residents, our sponsors, riders and the wider road racing community for their support and encouragement throughout – this hasn’t been an easy period and the decision to run the races this year hasn’t been made lightly.
“We will be looking at support packages for the event, and these will launch via our website soon – please do keep an eye out on our social media platforms and other road racing media outlets for further information in due course. We now begin the detailed planning, at a much later stage, of running a road race!”
