Irish drivers scored a resounding victory over their British rivals in the annual Formula Vee Festival meeting at Mondello Park yesterday, in aid of the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice. In the closely fought Final, the main race of the day, the home side took the top four places, with Colm Blackburn taking the lead from early pace setter Anthony Cross just before half distance, winning by just one tenth of a second after a ferocious duel all the way.

Relative newcomer Luke O’Faolain took a well deserved third spot, with Tim Probert the best of the visitors in fifth position. Dan Polley came out tops in the selco.ie National Championship round, with Graham Gant first to the flag in both of the races confined to the British visitors.

The Fitzgerald brothers won three races between them, with Mick taking two of the three Fiesta Zetec events and Brendan triumphing in one of the Fiesta ST outings, while David Parks, Keith Campbell and Se Martin Junior each had doubles in their classes.
