2014/15 Winter Championship Final Round & Prizegiving

Aghadowey Motorsport Centre - Saturday 21st March 2015

The final round in our Winter Championship took place at the upgraded Aghadowey Motorsport Centre in superb weather conditions last Saturday the 21st March and the Championship Prize giving also took place in The Brown Trout Country Inn immediately after the event.

It was also the first round of the 2015 RM Racing Cross kart Championship.

108 competitors each enjoyed seven stages created within The Aghadowey venue incorporating narrow challenging lanes, fast flowing parts of the original Aghadowey race track and some new infield sections... add in some warm dry weather, some superb driving with plenty off high speed action from a wide range of competition machines....it turned out to be another RSA event that put smiles on many faces! 

Congratulations to the 'Overall Rallycar Winner', Barry Morris who also completed a 'full house' of class wins in this series.

Congratulations also to the other class winners, Ryan McKenna (1), Jack McKenna (2), Andrew Garvin (3), Stephen Hunter (4), David Christie (5), Barry McArdle (6), Gerard Docherty (9) who also came top of the time sheets with the fastest overall time but  unfortunately was not eligible overall honours and Michael McGarrity (10).

The RM Racing Cross kart Championship round one winner was Mervyn Deane with Seamus Donnelly the runner up and James Cassidy in third.

Special Information for Nova/Corsa Challenge Cars - Class 1 & 2

Class 1 and Class 2 competitors are advised that we will be conducting detailed random scrutiny at every event from now on to enforce compliance of the class regulations as of October 2012, details of which are available by selecting the appropriate button on the left side of the homepage.

Several championships have now passed since the regulations were updated as a result of competitor requests and we will enforce these regulations in full. We expect serious competitors to comply with these regulations and be advised that we will not permit any non compliant car to compete in either class 1 or 2 until we are satisfied that it concurs to the class regulations.

It is in competitors interest to ensure that cars conform to the RSA regulations and the appropriate bolts are drilled ready for mandatory sealing. Any car found to be unsuitable or unprepared for sealing to comply for the regulations for class 1 or 2 will not be permitted to run in the challenge classes but will be allowed to compete in class 3.
