2017 International North West 200 (NW200) Tuesday 9th May 2017 Qualifying / Practice Results

A gorgeous sun drenched North Coast of Northern Ireland set the scene for the first Practice / Qualifying Session of the 2017 International North West 200. 

This is why we love the North Coast – when it’s good it’s so good!

Oh and if you haven’t heard a poorly parked Vauxhall caused a red flag! 

That's one way to secure a red flag - abandon a Vauxhall on the course.

Bruce Anstey and Paggetts Honda still need a 2017 main sponsor!
