Steele successfully defends Irish 200mm title

Steele successfully defends Irish 200mm title

Team Shepherd driver Chris Steele has successfully defended his Irish 1:10 200mm National Championship title continuing his 100% winning form as the fifth round took competitors to Northern Ireland.  Racing at the tight Ballymoney circuit, Steele maintained his perfect qualifying record to secure his fifth TQ honour of the season ahead of the returning Mark Gilliland.  Leading the 30 minute encounter from start to finish Steele set the fastest lap to take his Murnan Modified RB powered Velox V10 to a 4 lap winning margin.  Making it a 1-2 for Shepherd, teenager Darren Gibb took second with Gilliland’s Xray completing the podium.  With the title in the bag despite two round still remaining in the 2010 Championship, Steele can now concentrate on getting married with him due to tie the knot later today (Thursday).

Final Result
1.(1) Christopher Steele – Shepherd – 138 laps
2.(3) Darren Gibb – Shepherd – 134
3.(2) Mark Gilliland – Xray – 129
4.(5) Robert Boylan – Serpent – 127
