Connolly guides Hurson to victory on Tyrone Stages

Posted: July 28, 2015 in Uncategorized

Damien Connolly navigated Down’s Peader Hurson to overall victory on last Saturday’s Tyrone Stages Rally. The event was the fifth round of the Northern Ireland Rally Championship and consisted of three closed road stages repeated twice totaling 44 miles. Hurson/Connolly dominated the event from start to finish, going fastest on every stage to take a comfortable win from Frank Kelly/David Vance. Their only problem was the readout on the dash failing after four stages.

Paul Sheridan guided Enda McNulty to 6th overall and 2nd in class 7 in their Mk2 Escort. Evin Hughes was on the notes for Rodney White and they finished 8th overall and 1st in class 6 after two of their class rivals hit problems on the final stage. Mac Kierans guided Alan Smyth to 13th overall and 2nd in class 4. This leaves them in 2nd place in the Road 2 Wales Initiative which gives the winning crew a free drive in a Citroen DS3 on Wales Rally GB.

McKenna/Grennan head to Finland

 

Daniel McKenna & Andrew Grennan continue their pursuit of the JWRC title at this weekend’s Rally Finland. The iconic event which runs from Thursday to Saturday is known for its flat out stages and spectacular jumps. The stages are on gravel roads through forests and feature some of the world’s classic stages. With a non-finish in Monte-Carlo and a low points finish in Portugal, McKenna & Grennan will be determined to bag some strong points this weekend.

Tipperary Stonethrowers August 9th

Ulster Rally August 14th-15th
