ORGANISERS of the Armoy Road Races say they have "big plans" for the event, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.
The comments come after it was announced that Coleraine-based Roadside Kia will continue its support of the competition, which is considered one of the top national meetings in Ireland.
Roadside Kia  is to become the title sponsor of the second Supersport Race which, in 2017, was won by Michael Dunlop - a rider who has also  benefited from the garage's  support in recent seasons.
Bill Kennedy MBE, the Clerk of the Course, said: "Without sponsors like Roadside Kia, the Armoy Road Races and Race of Legends would not be possible, so for that I am indebted to them.
“On behalf of the club and personally, I would like to thank David Boyd and Ian Lamont for their continued support throughout the years.
“Having also sponsored Michael Dunlop for the past three years, it is clear that both David and Ian are very passionate about racing and I look forward to celebrating with them through top quality racing."
David Boyd of Roadside Garages, added:  "We have a long history with the Armoy Road Races and it is an honour to support them again, not only as racing fans but as members of the local community.
“Every year, the Armoy Road Races shines a spotlight on what the local community has to offer and that is something we are very proud to be a part of."
