New laws proposed for road racing in Northern Ireland – 15 October 2013

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy is set to proceed with a Bill that would change the law around road racing in Northern Ireland.

Results from a public consultation on the subject have overwhelmingly supported changing the existing legislation to provide race organisers with some flexibility to change the date of their race day or practice sessions where they might otherwise have to be cancelled due to bad weather.

The Bill comes after the North West 200 was cancelled for the 2nd time in the last 3 years.

However, there is set to be opposition to the proposal to allow road racing on Sundays.
