Richard Kilty #Represent

Acklam Car Centre sponsor & Teesside's very own Richard Kilty has been selected to represent Team GB in the upcoming World Athletics championships in London this August

A memorable day for both Richard Kilty and Acklam Car Centre as our long standing sponsor looks set to light up the stage at The 2017 IAAF World Championships 16th edition in London alongside athletic legends such as Usain Bolt and Mo Farah.

Richard, pictured left, won Gold as recent as at the 2017 European Athletics Indoor Championships in March in what is considered his speciality the 60m. We are looking forward to seeing what Richard can achieve in his home country and we will also be supporting Richard's fiancee Dovilė who will also be competing at this years event.

Historicaly Richard has participated in the 100m, 200m and the 400m relay and is tipped to become only the second white British sprinter to run 100m in under 10 seconds.
