Taxi company fonaCAB and oil distributor Nicholl Oils have extended their backing of motorcycling showpiece the North West 200 by agreeing a three-year extension to their title sponsorship deals.

The two Northern Ireland companies were the principal sponsors of the 2019 races, a major tourism draw for the country, with the event celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.

The 2020 races, which will be held on May 10-16, will be known as fonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200 with the partnership now extending through to 2022.

Event director, Mervyn Whyte, said: “Their support is an indication of the platform the event can offer companies to promote their businesses and will help provide the Coleraine and District Motor Club with the financial security required to plan for the future of the races.”
