Saturday 14 September sees Larne Motor Club host the 6th Round of the SW Adair Tyres Northern Ireland Sprint Championship at Kirkistown Circuit in what promises to be an intense days sprinting whilst at the same time raising some much needed funding for the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland .
Historically Larne Motor Club host one of the best events of the Season at Kirkistown and they never fail to attract a top class entry of local talent as well as some not so regular competitors who enjoy the friendly, laid back atmosphere of the event.
This year is no different as entries continue to flood in with entries so far received from the 2018 Modified Champion Oliver Cormican in his Mitsubushi Evo, as well as the 2018 Northern Ireland Sprint Champion Adrian Pollock in his Dallara F301 who will continue his season long dual with Ballymoney man Steven Gault (Reynard 903).
Former 2013 Northern Ireland Sprint Champion John Morgan has also submitted an entry.
As we enter this event Adrian Pollock has a 4 point lead from Steven Gault in the overall championship race, with Joe Courtney third, 11 points behind Adrian. In the road going Championship Andrew Robb has a comfortable 10 point lead over Alfred Robb in their dual driven family owned BMW M3 with Aaron Vance third in his Renault Clio.
Oliver Cormican leads the Modified championship again this season, from Gerard O`Connell who is 6 points behind Oliver and 3 points ahead of Dermot O`Hagan in his super fast Honda Civic. With dropped scores still to play a major part in this year’s championship it is still very much to play for in every class so the action will be fast.
So why not come down and support not only the SW Adair Northern Ireland Sprint Championship, but also the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland which requires £2 million each year to maintain the fabulous service which it provides
ABOUT AIR AMBULANCE NORTHERN IRELAND
Air Ambulance Northern Ireland (AANI) is a local charity that provides the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for Northern Ireland, together with our partners at the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS). The service brings urgent medical assistance to anywhere in the province, operating seven days a week for 12 hours per day. It can get to anywhere in Northern Ireland in approximately twenty-five minutes.
This Doctor / Paramedic led service benefits those whose lives are at serious risk following significant injury or trauma. Effectively the service brings emergency hospital care direct to the casualty.
Before the start of AANI operations in July 2017, Northern Ireland was the only part of the UK without an emergency helicopter service, and its launch marked the culmination of a twelve-year campaign backed by the public and driven by key individuals throughout that period.
The speed of the service is improving outcomes and saving lives. The service is tasked to an incident on average every day
