Pete, Paulo and Rebecca will be broadcasting their Breakfast Show live from EUROSPAR Brackenvale Store on the Saintfield Road, Belfast on Friday 13 February. The show will give shoppers and listeners the chance to call in, meet the team and be in with the chance to win tickets to the high-speed, adrenaline-filled event that takes place at Stormont Estate on 20th and 21st February.
