Carlow Stages Rally 2012

Higgins Storms to National Rally Win in Carlow

Kiltimagh’s John Higgins claimed his first overall national rally success on Sunday when he co-drove Cork’s Brian O’Mahony to victory on the Carlow Stages Rally, round four of the Dunlop National Rally Championship. The Subaru WRC pairing won by fourteen seconds from the similar car of Thomas Fitzmaurice and Fionn Foley.

The win puts the Cork / Mayo duo into a strong position to challenge for the 2012 Dunlop National Rally Championship title, with four rounds still to run.
