News from the Weekend

Guy Foster’s third victory of the season yesterday brought him within a single point of defending champion Ian White in their duel for the Hewison Trophy Autotest title.

Foster led virtually all the way through the twelve tests at Rosenallis, Co Laois, with White in second place until a broken gear lever on the second last test dropped him to third position behind Peter Grimes.

Grimes almost stole Foster’s thunder, cutting his lead from ten seconds to just 1.3 at the finish thanks to a terrific final three tests, while class winners Chris Grimes and Darren Quille took fourth and fifth places overall.

Cork crews took the top two positions in the 1000 Shakes Navigation Trial, with Owen Murphy and Daire Hayes beating James Fitzgerald and Ken Carmody by four marks after an 85 mile route based on Macroom. Title holders Derek Mackarel and Muireann Hayes finished third.

At Inch, Co Wexford, Fergil Gregory scored his second Sporting Trial win of the season, beating fellow Wicklowman Morgan Evans by two marks for the MEC Jenkins Cup.
