The Monaghan-Cavan combination of Sam Moffett and James Fulton led from start to finish yesterday to take a clear win in the Hotel Kilmore Cavan Stages Rally, finishing the nine stages 44 seconds ahead of former National champions Declan and Brian Boyle.
Two more Fiestas in the hands of Desi Henry and Joe McGonigle took third and fourth places, with Forestry experts Cathan McCourt/Barry McNulty next up despite being in an unfamiliar car as they switched from their regular Fiesta to an Impreza.
Group N Production class winners Aidan Wray/Kieran McGrath took eighth position overall in their Lancer Evo, with David Kelly and Ryan Moore winning the two Junior classes.
Matthew Nicholl kept his unbeaten record this year by adding two more Ginetta Junior race wins at Kirkistown to his tally, making it four victories from four starts. Christopher Grimes and Sean McGovern scored a second and a third place each.
