Duo Titles For Kelly And Flanagan As They Claim Victory At The Todds Leap Ulster Rally 2015

Donagh Kelly And Kevin Flanagan Rounded Off A Pretty Faultless Year Literally Winning All Around Them.
Friday Saw Donagh Take An Early Lead As Garry Jennings Ran Into Problems On The First Stage. But As The Stages Went On Garry Began To Set Some Amazing Times And Started To Reel In Donagh. Desi Henry Kept In The Mix Too Setting Some Pretty Impressive Times In His Skoda.
Saturdays Stages Saw Garry Take Control As He Began To Pull Away. The Display of Car Control Was Just World Class, Treating The 4WD Subaru Like A MK2 Using Every Inch of The Road. Donagh Was Playing It Cautiously On The Damp Roads. But The Three In A Row Win Garry Was Heading Towards Literally Went Up In Smoke. About A Mile And A Half From The End of The Last Stage His Car Caught Fire And That Put An End To His Amazing Charge For Victory.
So It Was Donagh And Kevin Who Took Victory And The Championship. There Was Champagne All Round When They Arrived At The Finish. Following Him Home Was Desi Henry And Liam Moynihan In The S2000 Fabia After Setting Some Brilliant Times Over The Weekend. Third Home Was The Mini WRC of Derek McGeehan And Arthur Kierans Who Also Won The National Section Too.
Jon Armstrong Took Victory In The R2 Wales competition With killarney Man Noel O’Sullivan On The Notes Finishing Over 30 Seconds Ahead of Billy Coleman Nominee Rod Duggan.
Brendan Cumiskey And Ronan O’ Kane Took The Win In Group N In The Battle Scarred Subaru.
In The Junior Category It Was The Cork Duo of John O’ Sullivan And JJ Cremin Who Came Home First In The Ford Fiesta R2.
In The Historics Raymond And David Johnston In A Ford Escort Finished 30 Seconds Ahead of Rob Smith Also In A Ford Escort.
