Garry Jennings adds Galway to his long list of titles
Garry Jennings added to his Irish Tarmac rally championship successes with a first Galway International victory, a comprehensive win by almost three-and-a-half minutes.
But with his WRC Subaru Impreza excluded from scoring points in the series this year, the Kesh ex-champ won't be adding to his 2013 title. Instead, it is Keith Cronin who tops the Tarmac table after a strong drive to second in his R5 Citroen.
Jennings led from start to finish and was able to drop his pace after his only real rival for overall honours, Declan Boyle, crashed out on Saturday, the 2014 champion's WRC Ford Fiesta going of the road and hitting a tree.
The big battle centred on the R5 category cars of Cronin, Alastair Fisher, Desi Henry and Sam Moffett. Henry led for a time in his Skoda, as did Fisher in his Fiesta, but triple British champion Cronin came out on top.
e Steven Kane made it onto the podium at the end of the Bathurst 12-Hour race in Australia, the Ulster driver and Bentley team-mates Guy Smith and Matt Bell finished third.
