Steven Hayes won the Irish 1:10 Onroad National Championship in the best way possible over the weekend by taking his 3rd win of the season in the ORCA run series. Racing in the 6th round of the championship at the St. Annes Park track, the Xray/Nosram driver won the event after defending champion Chris Steele dropped out of the lead with engine trouble 3-minutes from the end of the 30-minute final. Serpent drivers Eoin Doran and Chris Lawlor completed the podium.
In 1:8 Clive Connolly headed home standings leader Darragh Fox for his third win of the season but the Serpent pairing will have to wait two weeks till the re-run of the 4th round, which was rained off, to decide who will be crowned 1:8 Champion. Mugen driver Austin Elliot was third.
