The event now in it’s third year and regarded as the premier motorcycling awards ceremony in Ireland, is already a 530 seater sell–out and organiser, Paul Lindsay – Publishing Editor for both Irish Racer and Dirt MX magazines told us: “Yes the response to the event for 2006 has been phenomenal and all 530 seats are now completely sold out with six weeks still to go. This just proves how strong the support for motorcycling is in Ireland, with all the seats sold before we even to get announce our star guest! We have also added some exciting new sponsors for the 2006 event, which we will be announcing along with a short list for each category in early January.”
Other star guests who have already pledged their support for the January extravaganza are: Eddie Seel the former World Supermoto star who will fly in from Belgium; British Supersport Champion Leon Camier and TAS Suzuki’s Tom Sykes; and from British Superbikes, the Red Bull Honda team, Ducati’s Leon Haslam along with Michael Rutter and team boss Paul Bird from the Stobart Honda team.
Where there is glitz, there surely must be glamour, so the organisers will also be flying in MotoGP racing’s very own diva, Suzi Perry, new girl on the grid and former model Fran Robinson of Men & Motors fame; the fastest women around the mountain circuit Maria Costello – not forgetting our very own Claire McCollum from UTV Sport and Christine Bleakley the face of entertainment at BBC NI.
The event will be hosted by Stephen Watson BBC NI & Claire McCollum UTV Sport.
