Irish National Champions 2016
Irish Nationals Roundup
The last of the Irish Nationals took place the past weekend but wet weather spoiled the fun. A number of rounds have been run in the year but Monaghan has been subject to unfortunate weather conditions consistently. The second round here was rained off mid way and unfortunately the rerun was also. Most of the guys where sad as the track team had made the place more comfortable and consistent, the track would have made for a great race final.
So we fall back to 2/3 scoring rounds and as ever it's tight at the top. A well done to Alan Scoggie taking the title of Irish national champion, another to Gary Baird for finishing a good 2nd place and young Andrew McClean 3rd. We managed a creditable 8 cars in the top 12 positions all on the full Nemo package running Agama Bullitt Beta and Piranha.
The most improved drivers have to be Andrew McClean, Paul Kane and Damien Russell well done guys keep it up. In Electric Buggy Gary Baird took the title with Barkley 2nd and John Dungan a very good 4th . From our side of the pond our race gear has been very reliable and we look forward to the 2017 season but please, no rain!
