T9 Moto - Millbrook Charity Grasstrack By Mourne MCC
So on Tuesday night i got a call from Matthew King where we arranged T9 Moto to call down on Wednesday evening and cover the great Charity Grasstrack Event held every year just out side Ballinahinch, Co. Down. I couldn’t say no.
If i am honest i hadn’t been to one before and the event has been going now for 7 years. After last nights event i won’t miss one again. Great rider numbers (full start lines in every class), Great spectator turn out, great weather and best of all GREAT racing in all classes.
The Chartiy motocross promoted by the Mourne Motocycle Club has raised over £41,000 for various charities and after last night that figure should go up to around £50,000 in total raised for local charities.
On the night Tommy Merton came away with the 3 Grade A/B class race wins and the overall to win the event outright.
Just before the start of the first moto they also held a ‘moment of silence’ for Callan McErlain who had recently past away. Callen’s passing has been felt far and wide in the motcross community and it was good to see everyone stand up and show their respects last night. On behalf of T9 Moto, Our prayers and best wishes are with the McErlain Family at this difficult time. R.I.P Callen McErlain.
