Car Lifting at the Belfast Motor Show



Ultimate Strongman Jonathan Kelly from Newtownabbey holds the title of 2 x Ireland’s Strongest Man and is the current record holder for the ‘Irish Deadlift Hold Record’ which saw him lift a 1 tonne car, engine side, for 41.07 seconds. 

Jonathan will be hoping to hold on to this record as he challenges two other strongmen to take the title ahead of the Belfast Ultimate Strongman Giant Weekend.

Both Sean O’Hagan, Ulster’s Strongest man and Clarke Beck, Ireland’s Strongest man 2014 will attempt to beat this at the Belfast Motor Show which takes place this weekend at the King’s Hall. Visitors on Saturday will be able to watch the competition between these two men at 1pm.
