Entries are now open for this year’s Harrigan’s Fuels Miss Armoy competition, which will take place on Thursday 23rd June 2015 in the club’s Corporate Hospitality Marquee in the paddock.

As one of the major highlights of Bike week, Miss Armoy welcomes young women from all over Northern Ireland and the local area to come along and enjoy a great night’s craic at Armoy.

The event will not only involve plenty of fun and great prizes but successful candidates can be promised a platform perfect for pursuing a modeling career, especially with past winners including Miss Northern Ireland 2014 and Miss NW200.

William Munnis, Chairman of the Club, said, “Miss Armoy has been a permanent fixture of Armoy Road Races for some time having grown from strength to strength each year. The competition has had a major positive impact on many of its winners, so this year we are extremely excited as it is set to be the best one yet.”

“We’ve moved the event from Friday night to Thursday just to give us more time on Friday evening to set up again for Saturday’s Race Day. The event has a set of guidelines and young ladies can expect to be interviewed twice, the first occasion as a ‘biker girl’ and the second, wearing their ‘party gear’. Of course, the winner must be enthusiastic, up for a challenge and willing to take part on Race Day on Saturday 25th July 2015.”

Carly Black from Coleraine, the current Miss Armoy said, “I loved everything about the competition and winning was such an exciting experience, I really enjoyed the buzz of the whole contest and it’s an experience I will never forget.”

“My advice to any girl who is thinking of entering this year would be – go for it! The competition gave me a real confidence boost and I thoroughly enjoyed helping out at the podium and getting photographed with all the winners on the race day.”

The first four runner-ups will also be expected to appear at the Race Event on Saturday 25th July 2015, from 9.30am until racing finishes helping out on the grid at the start of each race.

Munnis added: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Harrigan’s Fuels, our main sponsor. They’ve continued to sponsor our Miss Armoy competition each year and without them we really wouldn’t have an event. I’d also like to thank all our other sponsors, which include; Pacemaker Photography, Nutt Travel, Springwell Manor Spa, The Scenic Inn and Buds and Bows Flowers. Their support is invaluable and greatly appreciated by the Club.”

This year’s live music, is provided by local band, Roll the Dice and will follow on from the Miss Armoy competition, which starts promptly at 9.00pm.

All entries must be in by the Saturday, July 18, but the sooner the better. Entry forms with full instructions can be downloaded from www.amrrc.com or visit the Miss Armoy 2015 Facebook page.

The event is part funded by Tourism Northern Ireland and Bike Week runs from Sunday 19th July until Saturday 25th July 2015 with the SGS International ‘Race of Legends’ featuring on the Saturday 25th July 2015.
