AS part of Coleraine Borough Council’s Race Week Festival, Jack Challoner will be the special guest at the Family Motor fest this Wednesday.

Jack is a special guest of Northern Ireland’s Team Trialstar and will join a line-up of high-ramp freestyle moto-cross stunts, live music, mini-moto racing and lots of children’s entertainment at the start/finish area.

World Number 9 Pro rider Jack Challoner (21) is from Halifax in England and is the reigning 2011 UEM European Motorcycle Trials Championship.

He has made fast progress through the motorcycle trials rankings, in 2008 winning the FIM Youth World Cup title and backing that up the following year with the FIM Junior World Cup crown in 2010. Having reached the World Championship class next on Jack’s to-do list is finish in the top 6 come the end of the 2012 season.

Mayor of Coleraine Alderman Maurice Bradley said, “This is a fantastic addition to an already jam packed Race Week Festival.

“By organising the Race Week Festival, Council presents a diverse programme with something for everyone. The emphasis is on family entertainment, and I am sure that everyone who comes along will be thrilled with what there is on offer.”
