The wind was brisk
Senan O'Connor was the sole club member at the Carlow Car Club Christmas rallysprint. The event was held in windy conditions at Mondello Park, Friday 27 December. the conditions were made even more difficult when oil was dumped over the whole course. competitors got 3 runs of a 6.5km course mixing loose surface and tarmac.
Using his Cinquecento with additional aerodynamic aids in the form of reindeer antlers, Senan finished third in class 1A.
Senan said afterwards "It was great fun throwing the little cars around in the stormy conditions."
Con Mulcahy was entered but did not compete.
