MANY of the UK's biggest road racing talents will be in Coleraine tomorrow nevening (Wednesday) for the North West 200's annual 'Meet the Stars' event in the Vineyard.
As expected, the ticket-only event is a sell-out as eager motorbike fans look to rub shoulders with Alastair Seeley - the meeting's most decorated rider with twenty one victories - as well as Ducati's Glenn Irwin.
In a thrilling blue riband Superbike Race last May, Irwin  out-braked his Carrickfergus neighbour on the approach to Juniper Chicance on the closing lap to score an unforgettable maiden victory.
Also confirmed by the organising Coleraine and District Motor Club is John McGuinness who continues his recovery after crashing heavily during Thursday practice  at Primrose Hill in 2017.
Englishman  Ian Hutchinson will also take time out of his on-going recovery programme following his accident at the Isle of Man TT to talk about  his expectations for the season ahead.
