Turkington set for Reach Festival


By Robert Jones

The Reach Motor Festival takes place tomorrow, with double BTCC champion Colin Turkington making a special appearance.

It's being held at the old B&Q site beside Rushmere Shopping Centre in Craigavon. Turkington will be showing off his RAC 2009 touring car and will be interviewed by motoring journalist Ian Lynas.

A number of high-profile drivers from the motorsport fraternity will appear, including Andrew Nesbitt, Kenny McKinstry, Frank Kelly, Denis Bickerstaff, Wesley Patterson, Drew Wiley, Gary Jennings and Ronnie Trouton.

There will be a host of activities for all the family, including the opportunity to sit in the passenger seat of a competition car while an experienced driver takes you round an auto-solo course.

There will also be displays featuring supercars, rally cars, vintage cars, go-karts and motorbikes, visual presentations and simulated driving experiences, and an auction.

All proceeds from the North Armagh Motor Club event will go to support Reach Mentoring, who currently provide mentoring services to over 300 pupils across schools in Portadown, Craigavon and Lurgan.
