JP Corry main partner for EHA Racing at North West
EHA Racing, part of the EHA Group were delighted to announce that Northern Ireland’s leading Builders Merchant, JP Corry, will join the team as main partner for the International North West 200, 15th – 19th May 2018.
The JP Corry distinctive yellow walnut tree will feature on the EHA Racing YZF-R6 Yamaha, ridden by the North West 200 record holder Alastair Seeley.
The 21-time North West winner called into JP Corry’s Belfast headquarters this week and spoke to the company’s Managing Director Ciaran McConnell.
“I know of JP Corry from their busy branch in my home town of Carrick, where I’ve called in from time to time for some tools and DIY material for my house,” smiled the double British champion.
“I’m also aware by my visit, that there’s quite a bit of history surrounding their company. With the team’s parent company EHA Group also a well-established Northern Ireland based business, it’s great to have JP Corry on-board for this year’s North West 200.”
“Ciaran and his team seem pretty excited about being involved and it’s more motivation for me personally, to give yet another team sponsor the coverage they deserve – right at the front of the races on the North Coast on May 17 and 19.”
Ciaran McConnell, Managing Director, JP Corry Ireland, said of the venture: “We’ve had the pleasure of working with EHA Racing on several occasions in the past, but being involved as the main partner at the North West 200 is an exciting step for us. They have a fantastic team with a lot of enthusiasm and passion, so we’re looking forward to partnering with them at this year’s race.
As part of the partnership, we’ll be working together on a few different things, including a meet and greet event with Alastair at our Coleraine based branch later in the month. It’s an exciting time for both parties”
