The organisers of next weekend’s Cultra Hillclimb, have announced that Loughbrickland’s motocross star Natalie Kane will be riding her HM Plant KTM works bike on the course, just prior to the day’s first official timed runs.
Based in the parkland grounds of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum North Down the event this years will also celebrate the Aston Martin Centenary and Porsche 911 Golden Anniversary with the historic Cultra Manor playing host to a vintage market.
Natalie commented that, “It was great to be asked to an event with so much history and has decided to recognise the role of women in motorsport. Being so close to home is an added bonus after all the overseas travelling we do in a season but regardless I just had to say yes straight away.
“Also given the relaxed nature of the event I’m really looking forward to the unique chance to mix with so many other female competitors, check out the junior trails demo and just talk to the public who come along during the day.”
