North West 200 continues to attract international field

The North West 200 continues to attract riders from all over the world, with a number of competitors at the recent Macau Grand Prix committing to race at the 2014 event.

Belgian Marc Fissette and American Jeremy Toye are to return to the international road race, while Didier Grams hopes to sample the north coast speed spectacular next May for the first time.

Fissette famously almost beat Joey Dunlop in a thrilling 250cc race on his debut at the Ulster Grand Prix in 1997.
