Maguire wins in Cavan

Posted: June 1, 2022 in Uncategorized

Stranooden’s Ciaran Maguire navigated local man Andrew Wedlock to overall success at last weekends Cavan Endurance Trial. The pair finished the twenty one selective event with 11 seconds to spare over 2nd place Karl O’Donoghue/ Kevin Fagan. Graham O’Donoghue/William Kelly finished in 3rd, 25 seconds further back.

Kieran McCarra/Aaron McElroy were actually the fastest crew over the entire event. They finished 1:48.0s a head of Wedlock/Maguire but as they were in a ‘navigation spec’ car they were ineligible to win the event and therefore the win went to Andrew and Ciaran as they were the fastest crew in an endurance specification car. McCarra/McElroy instead finished comfortable winners of class B.

To avoid confusion, the results below are written as if there is no distinction between endurance and navigation specification cars.

Andrew Mackarel/Richard Cassidy finished an excellent 4th OA and were winners of class C in their Opel Ascona. Damien Treanor/Thomas Treanor finished 15th OA and 3rd class B. Abraham Dixon/Luke Connolly finished 16th OA and 4th class A2B and Gordan Parker/Ryan Parker finished 18th OA and 5th class B.

Heartbreak was to befall Bob Graham/Ryan Treanor after selective 15 when the engine in their Toyota Starlet decided it had enough of Bob’s driving and promptly seized putting them out of the event. They had been sitting 2ndOA up to this point, just 16s off the lead.

Jim Clark Rally

Conor Mohan navigated Eamonn Kelly to Junior British Rally Championship success at the recent Beatson’s Building Supplies Jim Clark Rally. The pair selected the rally as their ‘Joker’ round meaning if they won the event, they would receive 5 bonus points. A poor seeding put them on the back foot immediately due to catching cars on the stage, however a big push on SS2, a long night stage left them with a 17s lead going into day two. Day two unfortunately was cut short for them with the cancelation of two stages, but despite this they continued their immense pace and eventually finished 30.6s ahead of 2nd place Kyle White/Sean Topping. The event win along with the 5 ‘Joker’ Bonus points leaves them with a 15 point advantage going into round 3, the Nicky Grist Stages on the 9th of July.
