New Sponsor for the Supertwins

BALLYMONEY based EMA Building and Civils Ltd has joined the 2023 list of Armoy Road Race sponsors with its sponsorship of the popular Supertwin, Aprillas, 700cc race.

Taking place on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th July 2023, Armoy Road Races is once again expected to welcome a large crowd of local and visiting fans as they enjoy a busy programme of twelve races.

As in 2021, the 2022 Supertwin race was another photo finish with fractions of a second splitting Kawasaki riders Jamie Coward, Michael Sweeney and Paul Jordan with Paul setting a new lap record of 99.249mph but it was the top privateer at this year’s Isle of Man TT event, Jamie Coward who took the top step of the podium with the win in what continues to be a hotly contested class every year.

EMA Building and Civils Ltd, based in Ballymoney, constructs large housing developments and one off house with their Civils division concentrating on large scale earthworks, sewage and drainage.  Eamon McAlister, director of EMA Building and Civils Ltd said, “We are pleased to be involved with the Armoy Road Races as sponsor of the Supertwin race.  It is great to see how the races continue to go from strength to strength each year through the hard work and commitment of the Armoy Motorcycling Road Racing Club members and we are looking forward to seeing some world class road racing this year.”

William Munnis, Chairman of Armoy Motorcycle Road Racing Club commented; “We would like to welcome Eamon and his team from EMA Building and Civils Ltd as the new sponsor of this year’s Supertwin Race and to thank them for their support.  Preparations are well under way for this year’s event, and we are grateful to all of our existing and new sponsors for their help.

“This year will see a high calibre of riders battle it out to take the top spots and we are very much looking forward to experiencing some great racing!”

Bike Week runs from Sunday 23rd July until Saturday 29th July with the races taking place on Friday 28th July and Saturday 29th July 2023 culminating in the Bayview Hotel ‘Race of Legends’.

The Armoy Road Races event is enabled by funding from Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
