Customers of Holmes Wholesale Services in Coleraine’s Loguestown Industrial Estate had the chance to meet some of the UK’s top motorbike racers on the eve of Northern Ireland’s North West 200 race.
The trade-only guests attended the reception for the Red Bull Honda and TAS Suzuki teams. Riders from both teams made personal appearances and guests took part in the prize draw, which included VIP tickets for the North West 200.
Chris Warwick of Braidriver Service Station in Ballymena and Darren Woods of the Tuck Shop in Bangor were among the star prize winners on the day, receiving VIP passes for forthcoming heats of the British Superbike Championships. Frank McAllister of Open All Hours in Belfast won gold tickets for the North West 200.
