DAMIEN WINS SECOND ROUND

Sunday 15th October last saw the second round of the 2000/2001 Irish 4x4 Off Road Championship held in Dualla, Cashel, Co. Tipperary, hosted by Tipperary L.C and M.C.C .

Once again a great day and a very successful event, 43 entries(incl. RTV class) was a great turn out, and to organise and marshal was no problem to the Tipperary Club, our compliments to clerk of the course Michael Ormand and his assistant Stephen Geary and their team of marshals.

JEEPS ARE READY, STEADY, GO!!!

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dualla is a very popular venue for all competitors, as everybody is within 1 to 2 hours from it and the site is very diverse and challenging.

The most spectacular event of the day was the 'Mighty Beast' doing a turn and to add salt to the wound also being beaten by Paul McCarthy in his Suzuki.

Well done again Damien Hennigan taking home 1st overall.

There were quite a few turns on the day but no damage done and above all nobody hurt.

Brian Berkery took 2nd overall, a well-deserved prize, and his new Suzuki is a credit to him.

DAMIEN LEADS THE WAY

BENNY SMITH GETS OVER HUMPS AND HOLLOWS!

It us great to see so many new competitors at the start of this season. There must be about six in all and most from the Limerick, Tipperary region, a nice days driving by Jim Armshaw, And all the rest of the Suzuki gang.

A good R.T.V class was run at the bottom of the site with about nine competing.

Our thanks to Shane once again and to all the Tipperary boys and girls. Many thanks to the site owner and to the hospitality in Dualla at the prize giving at the close of the day. Next event is in Vernon Mount, Cork on the 12th November.

See you all there,

Robin Lyons.
