Posted on: Monday, Feb 07 2011

At the recent well supported benefit night held for the families of the late Myles Byrne and Victor Gilmore, it was announced that Co.Tyrone rider Adrian McFarland would ride the Trevor Lindsay Suzuki 1000 Superstock this season for Team Blue.

Team Blue is in memory of Victor who campaigned on the Lindsay Superstock spec machine last year. The team plans to take in rounds of the International Road Race Championship (Schleiz, Hengelo Gld, Chimay, Terlicko, and Frohburg) plus Skerries, Mid-Antrim, UGP and Horice road races.

Victor had raced at some of the European events and loved the circuits and the people. A Team spokesperson said, “Victor travelled the globe to do his racing and was loved by everyone who knew him, so we thought what could we do to remember his past achievements, and after some brainstorming ‘Team Blue’ was born.”

An auction and disco will be held on Saturday 5th March in The Adair Arms Hotel Ballymena. The hotel is doing deals on double rooms so anyone interested should contact Adair Arms Tel 028 2565 3674 or email Davy McCartney
