‘GO’ ANNOUNCES TITLE SPONSORSHIP OF THE CLASSIC BIKE FESTIVAL IRELAND
The first Classic Bike Festival Ireland will take place at Bishopscourt in Co Down on the 3-4 August 2019 and will be sponsored by Go.
The two day festival, the first of its kind in Ireland, is expected to attract 400 classic and vintage road and racing motorcycles. Dating from the 1930s to the 1990s, the displays and parades will include the largest collection of Joey Dunlop’s race bikes ever assembled. The Dunlop family will also exhibit the full collection of Joey’s race memorabilia, including the helmets, leathers, trophies and toolbox of the famous Ballymoney racer. Go, which is already involved in two wheel sport through its support of the McAdoo Kawasaki Racing team since 2007, is to be the title sponsor of the new classic motorcycle event which is being organised by 11 times TT winner Phillip McCallen and co-promoter Robin Titterington.
‘Go are very proud to be the title sponsor of the inaugural Classic Bike Festival Ireland and as fans of classic motorsport, getting involved really was a “no brainer” for us.’ Patrick Kelly from Go said,
‘Go are now one of the main fuel networks in Ireland with over fifty 24hr forecourts and is also one of the leading electricity and gas suppliers to businesses, we have experienced rapid growth since launching into the commercial market across Ireland. We have further expansion plans to open more forecourts and later this year we will begin supplying electricity direct to the domestic customer. Go sees the attention the Classic Bike Ireland Festival will provide as the perfect vehicle to broaden our company’s exposure.’
‘The Classic Bike Festival Ireland is a new initiative for this part of the world and we hope to make it as popular an event as the Goodwood or Jurby festivals.’
‘Go is the perfect partner for the Festival and their range of services in fuel, electricity and gas will appeal to the thousands of spectators and competitors who will attend the event.’
There will also be special displays of race bikes and memorabilia of Grand Prix legend Tom Herron, who lost his life in a crash at the North West 200 forty years ago.
Machinery ridden by the two famous road racing quartets of the 1970s- the Armoy Armada and Dromara Destroyers- will also be on display alongside a host of motorcycle racing stars from the past and present during the festival. Tickets for the festival will be on sale soon from www.classicbikefestivalireland.com and watch out for more announcements about the exciting line-up of classic machinery and the stars who have raced them on classicbikefestivalireland Facebook page.
