Magherafelt & District Motor Club launched The Elk and MRF Tyres Targa Rally at the Elk Complex on Saturday 6th November. Event sponsors The Elk (represented by Aaron Mc Henry) and MRF Tyres (represented by Eugene and Bernie Donnelly) handed over their sponsorship to Clerk of the Course, Mary O Kane.
The Elk and MRF Tyres Targa Rally will be held on Saturday 27th November. Based at the Elk, the event has a very compact road section with 9 competitive tests, a combination of lanes and yards, with sealed and loose surfaces. The tests will be challenging but provide excellent value for money.
Aaron Mc Henry, General Manager of the Elk welcomed the rally to the Elk Complex stating that they are proud to again be associated with this event. He stated that the Elk is synonymous as a family entertainment venue, with live music every weekend, a bistro, bar, and the restaurant offering an extensive menu to suit all tastes and budgets. Mr Mc Henry added that the Elk is committed to supporting local sporting associations as they attempt to adapt to the new normal. He wished Magherafelt & District Motor Club every success in The Elk and MRF Tyres Targa Rally and that it would prove to be a thrilling day’s rallying for all the competitors.
