Father and son ready to do battle in Cork on Sunday

Father and son team Maurice and Dean McElligott are set to go head to head at the East Cork Hot Rod Club’s sprint in Watergrasshill on Sunday.

“He is hoping to try and beat me this time,” said Maurice with good reason.

Last September Dean made an impressive motorsport debut at the same event.

The 16-year -old Causeway youngster is the son of former Kerry Motor Club vice chairman and well-known local competitor Maurice.

Last year the father and son team fielded a self-built Nissan Micra for the event with Dean taking first in the Junior Modified class. Maurice drove the same car to fourth in a senior class.

They will drive the same car on Sunday.
