Murphy Masters Autocross

Father and son team Ronan and Jason Murphy from Shrule were in action last weekend at Midland Motorclub’s grass surface autocross event, held at Ballinalee, Co Longford.
15 year old Jason, competing in the junior class, set a blistering time on his second timed run in the M&R motors backed Honda Civic to take the class win and move into the lead in the overall National junior grass surface championships. Not to be outdone by his son, Ronan also took control in Class one, claiming the class win and ensuring that two trophies were brought west of the Shannon.

Else where last weekend Westport’s David Carney showed great pace early on at Tipperary MotorClub’s Stonethrowers Rally, before fuel problems forced his Ds3 to retire on the last loop.
