WorldSBK coming to Lake Torrent, Northern Ireland in 2019 - News

Superbike World Championship organisers Dorna WSBK Organization has announced what is believed to be a multi-year deal to bring WorldSBK to Northern Ireland, at the new Lake Torrent circuit.

Lake Torrent in Coalisland, just 40-miles from Belfast, is currently under construction but will host a round of the competition as early as next year. The 163-acre former clay pit which will be transformed into a world-class 2.2-mile circuit will bring WorldSBK to Northern Ireland for the first time and will accommodate 30,000 spectators from 2019.

David Henderson of Manna Developments, the development company behind the County Tyrone track, explains how a 15-year dream is now a reality:

"For the past 15 years, it has been a dream of mine to build a motor racing circuit that incorporates the feel of the road with the safety of an international standard track – and also to bring the World Superbike Championship to Northern Ireland.

"Having finally identified the perfect location and achieved planning permission last year, today sees the completion of that dream and is a day that will only be topped when we see up to 30,000 spectators converge in Coalisland for the first WorldSBK racing event in Northern Ireland. They really don't come much bigger than this," he added.

"This is a historic milestone for the town of Coalisland, the county of Tyrone and indeed for the whole of Northern Ireland as we celebrate the realisation of our vision to create an internationally recognised motorsport arena which will become a venue for regional, national and international competitions for many years to come."
