North Antrim MLA, Robin Swann has condemned those who created an oil slick which caused the cancellation on the Mid Antrim 150 road races today.
The Ulster Unionist commented;
“The cancellation of today’s races is a huge loss to the road racing fraternity in North Antrim. After the success of last weeks road racing in Armoyle North Antrim it’s a shame that todays racing had to be cancelled.’
“It looks like this was a deliberate, and frankly disgraceful move to stop the event from going ahead. Those selfish individuals who caused the oil slick have ruined all the hard work put in by the event organisers over the past year.’
“I must praise those involved who took the decision to cancel today’s racing as one of the competitors could have been seriously injured or killed as a result of this idiotic act.’
“I would urge anyone who has information that could help to apprehend those responsible to contact the PSNI immediately.’
