The last event
was at Moneyglass on Saturday 28th February and it was terminated
due to dangerous weather conditions.
The last event on our calendar was at 'The Game of
Thrones' castle venue at Toome in Co Antrim on the challenging lanes
of The Moneyglass Estate which sustained very heavy rainfall after
stage four and sections of the stage became seriously dangerous.
Several cars had aquaplaned out of control on several sections of
the stage and in the interests of safety for all it was decided to
cancel the event towards the end of the fifth stage.
The event results were determined at the end of stage
four with all stages counting towards competitors scores, so
congratulations once again to Barry Morris in his Mitsubishi EVO who
claimed yet another creditable overall win in this Championship. The
final results will count towards championship points awards.
Congratulations also to the other class winners:
Ryan McKenna (1), Jonny Magee (2), Keith Stewart (3),
Gary Cassidy (4), Hugh Watson (5)Paul Monaghan (6) & Stephen Moore
