THE biggest stars of the 2013 Vauxhall International North West 200 will be riding into town next week when the local Vauxhall dealership hosts a special Meet the Riders event. As the new title sponsors of Ireland’s top motorcycle event, Vauxhall will be giving everyone the chance to meet John McGuinness and Michael Dunlop (right) during a special visit to Charles Hurst, Lisburn at 7.30pm on Monday January 14.
Local hero Dunlop has recently joined six times North West winner John McGuinness in the Honda TT Legends squad and every bike race fan is savouring the prospect of the Young Pretender taking on the current King of racing between the hedges in 2013. The duo won’t have their first competitive outing until the North West but Lisburn race fans will have their own chance for a special preview at the Charles Hurst event. Both John and Michael will be available for autographs and photographs as well as a chat about the year ahead so why not come along and meet the men who will set the famous Triangle course on fire in May?
