The 2017 Vauxhall International North West 200 gets underway today with practice getting underway in glorious conditions on the North Coast of Northern Ireland.
While temperatures are a little chilly, the sun was beaming down on the iconic 8.9mile Triangle course as the newcomers headed out for their timed laps this morning.
The schedule faced a slight delay due to an RTC on the course causing heavy traffic build-up as the roads were set to be closed at 9.15.

Today’s practice will continue session by session until the roads re-open at 3pm, with practice then resuming on Thursday morning from 09.15.
