Road Races (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) Act 2014


The Department’s proposals for amending to the Road Races (Northern Ireland) Order 1986 were consulted on between 10 July 2013 and 7 October 2013.  871 responses were received and 92% of respondents indicated that they were fully in support of the proposals.

Although there is presently no bar to Sunday racing, a small number of respondents (6%) living in the areas of Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine that were in support of the proposals expressed opposition to the potential for Sunday racing.

Some 26% of respondents, taking into account the inaccuracy of weather forecasting, expressed the view that the 48 hour notice period proposed should be reduced to 24 hours.
