The 2010 North West 200 race day will take place on Saturday, May 15.

During the past few months NW200 Race Director Mervyn Whyte has been consulting with BSB organisers MSVR, to ensure that North West 200 Race Week did not clash with any BSB events and is delighted that a date has now been finalised.

Whyte said: “MSVR had to make a number of changes to the 2010 calendar and, until they were in place, we were not in a position to confirm the date of the North West 200. 

“We’re extremely pleased that we can run with our preferred date of May 15 which allows competitors a clear week after the May Bank Holiday race at Oulton Park (May 1-3).

"Following the North West 200 the next BSB round will take place at the popular Cadwell Park circuit in Lincolnshire from May 21-23.”
