After last week’s Rose Hotel Circuit of Kerry Rally – let’s have a look at how Kerry-based competitors are doing in the Top Part West Coast Championship
Katie Quinn Rally is in fifth place in Class 2
Gearoid O Regan is third in this class
The all-Kerry Motor Club crew of PJ O Dowd and Patrick Lawlor lead class 10 in their Sunbeam
Eddie Kennelly and Paul McGlinchey are third in class while debutants Stephen O’Connor and Jonathan O Shea are fifth
There is a lot of Kerry interest in Class 12.
Raymond O Neill and Jason O Connor are third
Sean Enright and Kevin Doherty are fourth
Maurice Browne and Chris Browne are fifth
And despite a non-finish Tyrone-based Brosna men Colm Browne and Michael Browne are sixth
Dave Slattery and Denis Coffey are second
London-based Ross Hillard and Joey Hillard are sixth
Michael Dowling and Stephen Buckley sit seventh
Ger O Brien and John Liston are eighth
Co-driver John Falvey did not finish, as did Michael Ray Stack and Gene Stack and driver John Corrigan – they each got one point to tie for 10th place.
Rally clerk of the course Eoin Duffin got eight points in reward for his workload – that leaves him joint third (PS a great idea by West Coast organisers).
Mike Quinn and Kieran Doherty are fourth
Former championship-winning co-driver turned driver Brian Hickey and his navigator Noel Murphy are sixth
Crew Peter Kelly /Maurice McElligott, co-driver Denis O Connell and crew Tadhg O Sullivan/ Keith McCarthy did not finish so have one start point and share seventh place
Class 16 JUNIORS
Kerry Motor Club member John Michael Kennelly and co-driver John Fleming are second.
