Kris Meeke is hoping for home comfort

Kris Meeke makes a rare appearance on home roads today when he takes part in one of Ireland’s oldest motorsport events, the Croft Hillclimb in the grounds of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum at Cultra.

Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion Meeke, who is widely reported to be on the point of signing for the new Prodrive Mini World Championship team, will perform course opening duties in a locally-built Crossle sports car as well as doing demonstration runs in one of his favourite cars, a Mk2 Ford Escort.

Meanwhile, Jonny Kane — originally from Comber — will compete at this weekend’s Silverstone Autosport 1000 as his highly successful season continues.
