Join us at on Saturday 2nd December 2017 between 12-2pm.
Tommy Byrne, the Dundalk lad whose rapid rise to Formula One in the ‘80s was followed by an equally spectacular fall, will be in Belfast on the 1-2 December.It tells the extraordinary story of the penniless kid from Dundalk who rose rapidly through the learning racing classes - Formula Ford 1600 (double British Champion in 1980); Formula Ford 2000 (British and European Champion in 1981); and Formula Three (British Champion 1982), to drive a F1 Theodore and get a McLaren F1 test.
Everyone is welcome to join Tommy on Saturday morning between 12.00 and 2.00pm at Creightons spectacular new filling station and supermarket at Balmoral on the Upper Lisburn Road Belfast.
It will be an ideal opportunity to pick up a special Christmas present for a petrolhead friend as Tommy will be meeting some old racing colleagues there and signing copies of ‘Crashed and Byrned’.
Racing Cara Formula Ford Van Diemen RF81, a replica of the car that Tommy took over from Ayrton Senna to win the 1981 Brands Hatch Formula Ford Festival will also be on display on the forecourt.
