Josh heads leaderboard at Cavan Kilmore Hotel National Rally
The Ford Fiesta of Monaghan-Limerick pairing Josh Moffett and Keith Moriarty dominated round three of the Triton Showers National Rally Championship, the Cavan Kilmore Hotel event. They set the pace on the opening stage and stayed in front all through the day to beat points leader Declan Boyle, a former double title holder, by 34 seconds.
Boyle and co-driver James O’Reilly had no answer to Moffett’s pace, although they were well clear of third placed Darren Gass and Enda Sherry in their Impreza, who were another 47 seconds down at the finish.
Another former champion, Donagh Kelly, spent the day getting used to his new Fiesta and had a cautious drive to fifth place, although he still holds runner up position in the points table.
Double Irish Rallycross champion Derek Tohill had another clean sweep at Tynagh, County Galway, with his Parts for Cars Fiesta easily winning both the Supercar Final and the main race, the Super Final, in the third round of this year’s series. Dubliner Tohill was 26 seconds clear of the Coyne brothers, Michael and Willie, in the Super Final, after earlier having 34s to spare over Declan Kelly in the Supercar race.
