Vauxhall pulls up with fresh NW200 deal

Thursday, 15 December 2016

BRITISH car giant Vauxhall has inked a new one-year contract to remain principal backer of the 2017 International North West 200. It is the fifth consecutive year that Vauxhall will be the headline sponsor of the the Coleraine and District Motor Club Limited event.
At last week's announcement it was revealed the company will have the option to extend its deal for one further year after 2017.
Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall Regional Operations Manager for Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man, said: "Vauxhall Motors are delighted to return as title sponsor for another year and are looking forward to reaching out to thousands of motorcycle fans through our sponsorship of this great event."
Event Director Mervyn Whyte MBE said securing Vauxhall's continued sponsorship is a huge boost for his North West 200 team.
“We are delighted to have agreed another deal with Vauxhall and furthermore they have an option to extend that into year two, potentially taking the commitment in total to six years," explained Whyte. "The finance, vehicle fleet and significant branding around the Triangle circuit which are provided to us by Vauxhall are vital in running an International event each year."
