A One Tyres is lucky enough to have a couple of Programmes for last month’s 82nd Rallye Automobile Monte Carlo (trés continental)! Two lucky A One Facebook followers can win these programmes by posting a comment on our Facebook page on why you would like to have the Programme. The best two comments by the end of the month will secure the Programmes.
Kris Meeke who hails from Dungannon was in Monte Carlo driving for Citroen. (Kris secured one of two places driving for Citroen in the World Rally Championship 2014.) He finished in second place after the first day of rallying in Monte Carlo and finished third overall on the last day. He is the first British driver to claim a top-three spot at a World Rally Championship event in 11 years, the last one being Colin McRae in 2003.
Check out some of Kris Meeke’s exciting driving in the Monte Carlo Rally in challenging snowy conditions here. It is gripping stuff. Maybe some of this driving will give you inspiration for your creative comment to secure the Monte Carlo Programme for your WRC memorabilia collection.
In the last few days Kris Meeke finished 10th in the Rally of Sweden. He had been in line for the 6th position but a snow bank caused him some difficulties and he had to be dug out. Even with winter tyres those old snow banks are a problem!
We are interested to watch how 2014 unfolds for Kris Meeke. Ulster’s sports stars are doing well on the world stage, with our golfers, our rugby players, and racing drivers. We are loving it.
