Kylemore Karting were delighted to host a fundraiser in aid of Our Ladys Children’s Hospital in Crumlin. We had the pleasure of being joined by Irish American entrepreneur and Irish motorsport supporter, John Campion, former Irish F1 star, Derek Daly, and children from Our Ladys Children’s Hospital (OLCH) along with their family and friends. Councillor Michael Watters was also present representing, Lord Mayor Paul McAuliffe.
Campion brought along Daly’s former F1 car, the 1981 F1 Guinness/Rizzla March 811 which was in Ireland for the Mondello Park Historical Racing Festival. Campion talked with the kids about his own personal battles with illness, sat them in the F1 car and we were able to give them and friends some laps on our tracks.
Campion, is now the main sponsor of Motorsport Ireland’s race team, known as New Team Ireland helping support young Irish Drivers. John Roe Jnr also joined us in the morning, he is currently racing F3 in the USA and is certainly one to watch out for in the future.
John & Suzanne Campion very kindly donated €10,000 to (OLCH) and we were delighted that both staff and patients were here to accept the cheque after their racing experience.
