John Baker, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses said: “We wanted to add something new to the race experience across all three days and together with The Saturdays on Grand Opening Day we see Juice FM as the perfect station to do just that.”

Station Director for 107.6 Juice FM, Graham Sarath, said: “The Grand National, like Juice, is a Liverpool institution and the biggest event in the sporting and social calendar for the city. To be Official Radio Partner of the festival is fantastic for Juice and I’m really looking forward to working with the team at Aintree and having a bit of fun on air in both the build up and at the festival itself.”

Last year’s festival attracted a record breaking 154,000 race-goers, bringing in an estimated £10 million boom to the Merseyside economy.
