Double National Rally champions Declan and Brian Boyle scored a runaway win in the final round of the Triton Showers Championship, the Martin Howley Memorial Harvest event at Killybegs. Their Fiesta WRC was fastest on every one of the eight stages, finishing almost two minutes clear of the Impreza of runners up Manus Kelly and Gareth Doherty, allowing the Boyles to leapfrog into second position in the National points table.
Kelly and Doherty were equally secure in second place, more than one and a half minutes ahead of three times title holder Niall Maguire and his co-driver Enda Sherry, with the Cavan-Donegal combination of Gary Kiernan and Ryan Moore the winners of the two wheel drive category, in fourth position overall in their Escort.
The Impreza of Garry Jennings was the Boyles’ closest challenger until engine problems forced him out on the seventh of the eight stages. In a pair of close battles at Mondello Park, Dave Maguire and Brendan Fitzgerald shared the honours in the Patch Tyre Equipment Fiesta ST races. Mark O’Donoghue scored a double in the Procraft Tools Fiesta Zetec races, while Naas driver Paul O’Brien won two of the three Legends races, with English visitor James Holman taking the third victory.
