Rory's New Ride - BERG Go Kart for Rory Best, Irish Rugby Star
Gary from Trampolines Ireland with Rory Best + New Go Kart
Rory first got in touch with us in August 2021, to discuss some trampoline options.
But then it went quiet...
200 Miles From Newcastle to Mayo
And later, we noticed in the media that Rory had just undertaken a 200 mile walk, from Newcastle in County Down to Cong, Co Mayo to raise funds for the Cancer Fund for Children, so its pretty understandable.
That particular challenge raised a staggering £380,000. Source: Belfast Telegraph
Once things settled down again Rory decided on the BERG Ultim Champion 410 Flatground model in grey that you can see below, and we were delighted to get a photo with Rory showing it taking pride of place in his back garden in the hills of County Down.

If The BERG Ultim 410 Champion Flatground Can Handle Ex-Ireland Rugby Captain Rory Best... Then Your Kids Will Be Fine.
When we told James Byrne, BERG Sales Manager for Ireland that Rory was a new customer, ex-rugby player and huge rugby fan, James was extremely excited, and was keen to do some small thing for the rugby legend.
Following a small flood of emails back and forwards going through the various options available, the BERG X-treme with XXL frame + passenger seat was decided upon, and this morning James Byrne from BERG presented Rory with his new go kart.
(I think the kids might get a go on the back).
In James' own words:
"What Else for A Legend of a Rugby Player But A Legend of A Go-Kart"

We hope the go kart gives Rory and his kids plenty of enjoyment, and we look forward to seeing what else he's up to on Instagram and his other social channels in the future.
Rory had a long and enormously successful career, as a Rugby Hooker, read all about it here - Rory's wiki page.
