Lakeland Tyres Back Armstrong for Ulster

(August 07, 2014)

The countdown is on to the start of the Todds Leap Ulster Rally and  local talent Jon Armstrong is relishing the opportunity “I haven’t competed in a competitive rally for a few months now but hopefully the Ulster Rally will be one to remember”.  Based in Enniskillen, just a few miles away from Jon’s home, the challenging stages will be something to savour “We came so close to creating a shock result last year, having lead the Rally for some time.  It wasn’t to be though and unfortunately we had to retire”. 

The state of the art R2 Fiesta is run by the Armstrong Motorsport team and this year the car will be emblazed with Lakeland Tyres logos.  “Adrian Frazer and the team at Lakeland have pulled out all the stops to ensure I would have the opportunity to compete.  On behalf of the team and of course myself, I would like to sincerely thank them for their ongoing support”.  Lakeland Tyres are well recognised in the Motorsport world and are also supporting Eugene Donnelly in the WRC Subaru S14 in the event.  “I am not sure if the Fiesta will have the power to match the Subaru but we can always try” said a joyful Jon.


We all look forward to a fantastic event and wish Jon every success in his ‘home’ event.  Good luck to the team and we look forward to reporting positive news come Saturday evening.
