IRISH road racing has received yet another boost this week as the Mid Antrim 150 Club revealed the return of its flagship event this season.
The news comes just days after both the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix confirmed dates on the international roads calendar as riders prepare for their busiest campaign since 2019.
The Mid Antrim 150 has not been held since 2016, but club officials confirmed yesterday that it is poised to make a welcome return in September.
A statement reads:
“As some people know we have been unable to officially release our dates for the 2022 Mid Antrim 150 road races due to clash of proposed dates with the Ulster Grand Prix and the difficulties the new promoters have had securing this event into the 2022 race calendar.
“We can now confirm that the 2022 Mid Antrim 150 races will return to the Clough circuit on the 9th/10th of September 2022.
“The meeting will consist of a full two day event, and will be the final races of the 2022 Ulster and Irish Road race season.
“The club are hoping to attract full grids of our top and up and coming stars again to the Mid Antrim Road races for 2022.”
