Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

As of the start of the 2011 season Claire's O'Donoghue got her seamusarm twisted into taking on the updating of the Club Members Championship. As usual Claire has been doing a great job of keeping the results updated and we're now up to the results from round three. 

There now surprise to see that MAN? from Mullinavat, Seamus Anderson, our current club champion at the top of the table. Seamus started off the season with claiming top points at the Autotest Weekend in January. Stefan Walsh and John Murphy rounded of the top three after the opening round of the season.

On to round two and the Wm. Loughman Forestry Rally and Seamus took 40 points from the forest event but it was Simon Reid who took top points. Paschal O'Shea driving his Mk11 took 46 points from the event and moved into third place on the table.

On to the third event of the season and Seamus was back on form and took the honours with top points but Paschal O'Shea was there to share the honours. The event saw Lisa Knox and Gemma Kerley move into fourth and fifth respectively.

At this point of the season there as been a meeting of senior members of the club and it has been decided that if Mr. Anderson enters the club's Hillclimb event during May, he will be handicapped. Seamus will be required to wear a BLINDFOLD during the event.
