For rounds nine and ten of the 2016 Tool Dynamics Supercar Championship, the series returned to Mondello Park in County Kildare for the Formula Vee Festival meeting, which raises funds for Laura Lynn- The Children’s Hospice.
Fomer series leader Andy O’Brien it was who claimed the all important pole position, ahead of the on form Sam Moffett, with Peter Barrable in third and Alan Dawson alongside him on the second row of the grid. Next up were Barry Hallion, Graeme Colfer, Dan Rooney and new series leader Bob Cameron with Alan Kessie and former Mini racer Ray Finnegan rounding out the top ten.
In race one, Sam Moffett took the lead and hung on for his second win in as many races despite the closest of attention from Barrable and O’Brien respectively. Barrable piled the pressure on in the closing stages but the rally specialist showed impressive racecraft and didn’t put a foot wrong.
Andy O’Brien led away in race two but Moffett, buoyed by his race one success, soon found a way by and began to pull away. Barrable also displaced O’Brien and closed down the gap to the leader but once again Moffett was not to be denied and crossed the line to make it three wins in the last three races- vaulting himself into contention for the title battle in the process. Once again, Barrable crossed the line under Moffett’s rear wing with O’Brien slightly further back in third.
These results have set up an intriguing championship decider at Mondello Park on September 17/18 with both Cameron and Moffett in with a chance of stealing the title from under the noses of perennial pacesetters O’Brien and Barrable- don’t miss it!
