The road racing season may be on hiatus for the winter but the hard work continues behind the scenes as Russell Shiels Tyres Ltd has been busy raising more than £2,000 towards the cost of replacing the Joey Dunlop grandstand at the start/finish line of the famous Ulster Grand Prix circuit in Dundrod.
Owner of the Magherafelt business Russell Shiels, who is a long-time road racing fan, produced and sold 1,000 car air fresheners that replicate Joey Dunlop’s iconic yellow Arai helmet to raise the funds.
