I'm planning to attend the North West 200 motorcycle Races in 2008. From what I've heard, the sooner I book this, the better. Advice I need, please, is:
Does anybody know the dates of the 2008 races? I've looked on the Official site but they don't seem to give future dates. (I've also emailed the Tourist Board, who have ignored me.)
The race runs between Portrush, Portstewart and Coleraine. I've seen two circuit maps, one of which suggests that the races go through Portstewart, the other that they turn off before it. Which is it?
And finally, best town in which to seek accommodation if I want to be handy for the start/finish line (given that I'll probably be on foot.)
