Su­per­car event raises char­ity cash

The Oban Times - - Sport -

A POP­U­LAR su­per­car event that raises money for Lochaber char­i­ties will be tele­vised for the first time this year.

The 2015 Mal­laig and West Coast run is set to take off on Satur­day and Sun­day Septem­ber 5 and 6.

Mark Ryan has been or­gan­is­ing the su­per car event for six years and it has grown year on year. Last year saw 53 su­per­cars visit the Lochaber area and 35 are ex­pected to ap­pear this year.

Each year driv­ers do­nate cash to a lo­cal char­ity and over the past two years more than £600 has been shared be­tween Glen­coe moun­tain res­cue ser­vice and the RNLI.

This year the Scot­tish Air Am­bu­lance ser­vice will ben­e­fit from the gen­er­ous do­na­tions.

Mr Ryan said: ‘The char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions are our way of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity who are kind enough to al­low us to dis­rupt their roads for a cou­ple of hours ev­ery year to do our run.’

Driv­ers will be stay­ing at Bal­lachul­ish overnight on the Satur­day evening be­fore mak­ing their way to Fort Wil­liam’s Ben Ne­vis ho­tel on Sun­day.

Times to see the cars on the day will be 10am un­til 11.15am at Ben Ne­vis ho­tel in Fort Wil­liam and again at 3pm.

They will be in Mal­laig be­tween 12.15pm and 2pm where the public are free to visit and view the cars.
