Description

The first semifinal of Hot Pursuits comes from the northwest. The Sperrin Mountain range, stretching along the border of counties Tyrone and Derry, is the largest in Ireland. Over 90 sets of stone circles have been found in the Sperrins, the best known being Beaghmore Stone Circles in the south east of the range and they are believed to be evidence of early Bronze Age settlers.

These provide the backdrop for Cadburys and Fruit of the Loom teams' efforts to test their teamwork and win. Hot Pursuit challenges take them to the beautiful Blue Flag Benone Beach, the Maiden City or Derry and the contestants also get a chance to take off in a small plane.
