North West 200 Race Week – 6th to 11th May 2024

The organisers of the North West 200 road races are delighted to announce the 2024 race week will take place on May 6-11, with the principal race day on Saturday, May 11.

Briggs Equipment announced as the new title sponsor of the North West 200 for 2024.
Following recent consultation with many of the major road race teams, the 2024 programme will see significant changes to the race schedule on both Thursday and Saturday.

A new Superbike race will be added to the Thursday evening programme alongside the now familiar Supersport and Superstock races. This will now provide Thursday visitors with the opportunity to see all of the major teams and riders in action.

As a result of this schedule change, Saturday’s programme will now include two Supertwins races run over four laps while the Supersport, Superstock and both Superbike contests will take place over six laps.

The organisers of the 2024 North West 200 will introduce significant changes to the qualifying schedule at this year’s event.

With many of the teams and riders that compete in the NW200 scheduled to race at the Oulton Park British Superbike championship meeting on Saturday-Monday, May 4-6 their arrival in Northern Ireland will be delayed until Tuesday, May 7.

As a result, and after consultation with BSB bosses, the North West 200 organisers will delay the start of this year’s practice and qualifying sessions until Wednesday, May 8.

There will also be a major rejig to the qualifying order at this year’s north coast event.

On Wednesday the traditional opening Newcomer session will now be followed by a one hour long Superbike qualifying session. On Thursday, the Superbikes will be the first machines on track.

Previously the Superbike qualifying sessions have been the final sessions during both practice days. These sessions have sometimes been curtailed following delays during earlier qualifying sessions. The change for the 2024 event has been introduced at the request of the teams who say the powerful superbike machinery requires more set up time than other classes.

The new qualifying and race schedules for the 2024 NW200 on Wednesday and Thursday, May 8-9 are as follows.
