It was a pleasant surprise when a certificate arrived through the door to say that Larne Motor Club had finished second in the MSA/JLT Club of the year awards 2016. A trophy was presented to council members at the ANICC Awards dinner in the Armagh City Hotel.
It was a pleasure to accept the award on behalf of many of the hard working members in this small but productive club in Northern Ireland motor sport.
Another highlight of the evening was the look on our chairman's face when he realised he had won the N.I Hill Climb Championship personality of the year award. Congratulations again Paddy.
I'd like to thank everyone who support the club throughout the year and the hard work paid off in the end. Congratulations should also go to the Ulster Automobile Club who finished third and also Jimmy McKeefry from MADMC who was volunteer of the year 2016.
