The first Mayo & District Motorsport Club Autocross of the year took place on Sunday. Derek Deane from Williamstown won the event in his JB Buggy, continuing his great form from last year that saw him crowned the 2012 Frank Harrington Challenge Champion. Second home was Ian Barrett from Maynooth, with another member of the Deane family, Mervyn, rounding off an all Buggy Top 3.
Local honours went to James McGreal from Foxford who won the club award. Other locals to fare well were club chairman Matthew Murphy from Shrule who won class 3 in his Toyota Corolla. Alan Moran from Foxford won Class 2 in his Opel Kadett, after a battle of the local young drivers that saw Shrule man Noel Murphy finish just two-hundredths of a second behind Moran.
Shauna McEveney from Castlebar won the ladies award on her first ever day out and also with a good solid performance on his first day driving at an autocross event was young Colm Ronan from Bekan. Both of whom are young drivers who are starting off their Motorsport careers at the correct level, taking part in the Mayo & District Motorsport Clubs -Young Drivers Support Scheme, learning proper car control in a controlled environment.
