EHA RACING JOIN FORCES WITH JP CORRY FOR NORTH WEST 200
EHA Racing is delighted to announce that Northern Ireland’s leading Builders Merchant, JP Corry, will become the team’s main partner for the upcoming International North West 200 from May 15 – 19.
With a history of over 200 years, and currently boasting 17 branches across Northern Ireland, the distinctive yellow walnut tree, housed within the green and yellow JP Corry livery will work well on the fast-moving EHA Racing YZF-R6 Yamaha, which will be ridden by stand-alone North West 200 record holder Alastair Seeley.

The Carrickfergus ace, who currently has 21 wins at the North Coast event, popped into JP Corry’s Belfast headquarters this week and was suitably impressed with the set-up, when he spoke to the company’s Managing Director Ciaran McConnell.
“I know of JP Corry from their busy branch in my home town of Carrick, where I’ve called in from time to time for some tools and DIY material for my house,” smiled the double British champion.
“I’m also aware by my visit, that there’s quite a bit of history surrounding their company. With the team’s parent company EHA Group also a well-established Northern Ireland based business, it’s great to have JP Corry on-board for this year’s North West 200.
Ciaran and his team seem pretty excited about being involved and it’s more motivation for me personally, to give yet another team sponsor the coverage they deserve – right at the front of the races on the North Coast on May 17 and 19.”
Ciaran McConnell, Managing Director, JP Corry Ireland, said of the venture: “We’ve had the pleasure of working with EHA Racing on several occasions in the past, but being involved as the main partner at the North West 200 is an exciting step for us. They have a fantastic team with a lot of enthusiasm and passion, so we’re looking forward to partnering with them at this year’s race.
As part of the partnership, we’ll be working together on a few different things, including a meet and greet event with Alastair at our Coleraine based branch later in the month. It’s an exciting time for both parties”

Our core business at EHA Group involves a lot of interaction with JP Corry, so it’s fitting that they will join us on our return to the largest outdoor sporting event in Ireland. We trust Ciaran and his team will enjoy the experience and the addition profile at what is undoubtedly one Ireland’s most prominent sporting events on the calendar.”
