Magic Bullet Fuel Treatments & Magic Bullet Motorsport are excited to announce that USA rider Patricia Fernandez will be competing in the NW200 international road race in N.Ireland UK on May 18th 2019. Patricia will be riding our Magic Bullet 600 Super-sport & Superstock ZX10 1000. 

Magic Bullet race director Stanley Watson said, “When we got the invitation for Patricia to compete in the NW200 we were very excited as Patricia officially has the title of the fastest female road racer in the world and she is a very valued member of our international race team. This will be the first time Patricia has entered the NW200 and she will be racing against the world top class road racers. Patricia has competed in the prestigious UGP Road Races in N. Ireland on several occasions and can more than hold her own, the UGP is where she earned her Fastest Female Road Racer In the World title. Magic Bullet are currently preparing her race bikes for the event and it will be all go go go for NW200 and Patricia Fernandez.”

"Finally, I get to race the Northwest 200!" said Fernandez. "Excited is an understatement. I'm very thankful that my Magic Bullet Advanced Fuel treatment team in Northern Ireland is so supportive of all my race endeavors. The Northwest 200 has been on my bucket list for many years now, and it's finally going to happen. I've been watching on board video in preparation for next week, and I'll probably burn a tank of gas doing laps in the car trying to learn the 8.9 mile circuit. I'll be a newcomer to the event, so I am limited to only 3 races on Thursday and Saturday. My primary focus will be competing on the Magic Bullet ZX-10 in both superstock and superbike, but I'm going to squeeze in at least 1 race on the Yamaha R6 in Supersport. I'm looking forward to challenging my ability and competing in such a prestigious international event that hosts over 100k spectators. I'm approaching the event with the mindset of learning, and improving as much as I can within the race week. Top speeds on the 1000cc are 209mph, faster than I've been before, but I'm going to do my best to hold on and keep her pinned. My team and I will also be competing in the Ulster Grand Prix this August. I will definitely try to push myself and better my lap record there. I'm grateful that all my sponsors in the USA also support me overseas. Thank you so much to Pirelli USA, Motul USA, ARAI and SPIDI. Without their continued support this wouldn't be possible. Also to my Crew Chief Rick Bretl who travels with me to make sure I have the best prepped machine possible, I couldn't do it without him. I'll be posting up live videos, updates, and where to watch live timing on my social media. I'm excited to share the awesomeness that road racing is with my friends and fans in the US!"
