First Again for Gerard O'Connor

Day 2

The second day of the Carlow Sprint was held outside Bagenalstown. The day started very wet and practice was delayed a number of times due to drivers sliding off. Gerard took the cautious option on the practive and first runs. On the second run with conditions greatly improved Gerard had difficulty selecting second gear on the 90 right, the tight cockpit of his rental car being the problem. Gear change problems were under control for the 3rd and 4th runs with Gerard setting a time of 48.45s 4.39s ahead of the second person in his class, he was 43rd overall in a field of 78. Trish Daly was 51st overall and 4th in her class.
