Cirrus Plastics Renew DMC Race Promotions Sponsorship Deal

DMC Race Promotions in association with Spedeworth Motorsports are pleased to announce that Portadown based Cirrus Plastics have renewed their deal to sponsor this season's DMC Race Promotions National Hot Rods Points Championship for a fifth consecutive season. The championship covers all the National Hot Rod meetings at Tullyroan Oval and Aghadowey Oval in 2018, including the international British Championship meeting in September. The domestic DMC points system will be used in all races, with the overall winner receiving not only a fantastic trophy but also four new Hoosier slick tyres courtesy of the Doak family at Cirrus Plastics. Their company is one of Ireland's leading manufacturers of polythene bags and film for the food, pharmaceutical, drinks and general manufacturing industries.

Young hotshot Jaimie McCurdy has scooped the big prize for the past two seasons, and with fantastic grids set to take to the tracks once again this term, another top class campaign lies in store. Darren Black representing DMC Race Promotions and the NHRPA said, "We can't thank Alvin and Stewart Doak enough for agreeing to continue their generous sponsorship, and the championship will once again add extra excitement to the formula during the season, on top of the thrilling climax we have ahead in World Series NI."

The first meeting for the National Hot Rods on the DMC Race Promotions raceways is at Aghadowey Oval on Easter Monday afternoon.
