Congratulations to Donagh Kelly & Conor Foley in their Focus WRC for their victory in the CARTELL.IE International Rally of the Lakes in Killarney at the weekend. They won with 50 seconds to spare over Robert Barrable & Damien Connolly in their Impreza WRC over the course of a terrific weekend of rallying across 2 days and 16 stages. Conditions were difficult but the racing was exciting. Kelly now moves back to the top of the Clonakilty Blackpudding Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
Barrable set several fastest stage times over the weekend while the remaining drivers who completed the top five in the international category were Alan Ring, Stephen Wright and Joe McGonigle. The modified category was won by Roy White in his MG ZR, while second place was enough to give Fergus O’Meara maximum points in the Modified Championship.
Denis Moynihan won the Historic section in his MK1 Escort while Rob Duggan won the Junior section in his Fiesta.
Once again we wish to express our thanks to all participants and organisers for making this a terrific spectacle and to the flocks of spectators too for creating such a stirring atmosphere for the drivers in Killarney.
