THE Vauxhall International North West 200 is to have its official launch within the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council boundaries for the first time in several years this spring, Chronicle Sport can reveal. Leading figures from the sport will be joined by a host of celebrities and members of the public for the glittering event in Coleraine on Wednesday March 15.
The iconic Titanic building in Belfast has played host to the NW200 launch in recent times but organisers have agreed a switch to the impressive Vineyard complex at Hillman's Way for 2017.
It marks a significant departure for the province's largest sporting event and is a decision which is sure to please those critics who argued that the launch should take place in the local borough.
Tickets for the event are expected to be snapped up quickly as it offers race fans a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their heroes.
