ORGANISERS of Ireland's top national race have confirmed that leading TT newcomer Adam McLean will be at this year's races.
Joining Adam - a previous winner of the Junior Support at Armoy - will be local men William Dunlop, Neil Kernohan, Paul Jordan, Darryl Tweed, Paul Robinson, Gary Dunlop, Hexham rider Dominc Herbertson as well as Moto3/125 GP frontrunner, Christian Elkin.
The announcement was made at the official launch of the Roadside Kia 'Race of Legends', which took place at Gracehill House, alongside a keynote presentation from Dunloy man David Wallace - a well-known film producer who helped create 'Road Racers'.
2017 is the 40th anniversary of the original 1977 documentary, which truly captured the heady mixture of three local men, their families and their passion, drive and love of road racing. He gave a short presentation on why and how the film was made but having won two BAFTAs for other work, David admits "the Road Racers film gets talked about more than anything else.
