Henry gives prize win­ners R5 spin

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Desi Henry re­warded two com­pe­ti­tion win­ners with a ride in his Skoda Fabia R5 re­cently at a pri­vate for­est near Ringsend, af­ter the driver and his team Mac­sport helped to raise over £150,000 for Kevin Carey.

Carey, from Henry’s home­town of Port­glenone, has a grade four brain tu­mour.

He and his fam­ily had iden­ti­fied ex­pen­sive treat­ment which could help, and Henry and his team de­cided to help. Kenny Mc­me­namin and Bernard Bradley were the names drawn out of a hat at the Ul­ster Rally to take a ride in the Czech-built car.

“When you can help and you can make some sort of dif­fer­ence that’s what you want to do,” said the new Ir­ish For­est cham­pion Henry. “We man­aged to col­lect around £2000; that’s money that will go a long way.

“Kevin’s treat­ment is go­ing to be a long and slow process and it is ex­pen­sive. We all hope that it works out for him but I sup­pose only time will tell if it has or not.”
