Moores master wet conditions to take Donegal Harvest Junior win

by Andy Walsh

In the aftermath of Storm Callum heavy rain on Saturday allowed Brian Moore to exercise his supreme talent in atrocious conditions, the Mayo driver had his brother Lorcan, alongside in the co-drivers seat of their Honda Civic as they took an emphatic victory in the Triton Showers Junior category of the Donegal Harvest Rally.

The Crossmolina brothers were fastest on all but one of the stages in the Ballybofey based event. They finished just over three minutes ahead of the Toyota Twincam of Donegal’s Darragh McNern and Trevor Graham with Ry

an Moore and Christopher Moffett also from Donegal, 22 seconds further behind in third in their Honda Civic.

“It was a great day, conditions were very tough, but the stages were mighty,” said eldest brother Brian after emerging from the final stage. He was full of praise for Lorcan, “He kept me in it, the car felt like a speedboat in the standi

ng water on the roads. Lorcan worked so easy with me on the notes, We’re absolutely delighted with the win”.

Elsewhere on the event the main-field victory went to Monaghan’s Sam Moffett and his Cork co-driver Karl Atkinson in their Fiesta R5, they finished 7.9 seconds ahead of the Fiesta WRC of the Monaghan/Limerick combination of Josh Moffett and Keith Moriarty. The Donegal/Monaghan duo of Donagh Kelly and Conor Foley in a Ford Focus WRC were a minute further behind in third.

The rally.ie award for highest placed two-wheel drive in the Triton championship series was won by Cavan’s Chris Armstrong and his Donegal co-driver Chris Melly in their Ford Escort Mk2. Their rival Stuart Darcy crashed his Darrian T90 on the penultimate stage of the rally.

Donegal’s Declan Boyle finished in 8th position but that was enough to crown him the 2018 Triton Showers National Rally Champion. It’s the third national rally title for Boyle, who on this occasion had James O’Reilly as co-driver. Boyle previously lifted the Vard Memorial trophy in 2013 and 2014.

Other Mayo interest in the event was with Trisha Greavy from Bonniconlon who finished a fantastic second in Class 11R co-driving for Cavan’s Paul Crosby in a Toyota Starlet while Derek McCarthy from Ballina finished third in Class 1 co-driving for Stephen Reynolds from Leitrim in a Honda Civic.
