Top points scorer in Galway, Jason Farrell, had to battle hard to win the Junior section of the West Cork Rally.
Farrell claimed an early five-second lead on West Cork’s iconic Ring opener. The Kerry pilot extended his lead to 12.8 seconds over Donegal’s Ryan McHugh by the Junior’s halfway point.
McHugh bounced back after service, however, going quickest on Ring and Clogagh to take the lead.
But Farrell managed to pip his Honda Civic rival on the final stage of the rally after trailing him by 0.7 seconds heading into Ballinascarthy.
A fastest-time, 10.8 seconds quicker than any of his rivals, ensured Farrell came out on top and maintained his perfect start to the Acesigns Junior Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
Runner-up in Galway, John Michael Kennelly, has lost ground on his rivals after a non-finish in West Cork. Robbie O’Hanlon finished third to pick up some more championship points.
