Irish 1/10th Offroad National Championship Rd2 – Report

Round 2 of the Irish 1/10th Offroad National Championships was held in Navan on the hottest day of the year with temperatures soaring to a high of 27 Degrees Celsius. The astroturf track has recently had a lot of work done to it and it is now smoother and more technical than ever. All of the usual championship contenders were present, including the returning Derek McCloskey who re-joined his teammate William White after missing round 1. Derek made an immediate impression taking the 2WD TQ spot. In 4WD, William and Derek would top the standings with William taking TQ after topping every qualifying round and Derek going 2nd. In the 2WD finals, William came from 3rd in the first two legs to win both taking the overall win while Derek finishing 2nd in the first two meant he would take 2nd overall. Alan Thomson would round out the top 3 result. In 4WD and starting from pole, William quickly broke away from the field in the first two legs to secure the 4WD win also – doing the double. Denzell and Dylan McBurney came in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Thanks to William White for the report.
