Conlon storms to victory in round four, but Deane takes the title

Michael Conlon in his buggy took his maiden victory at round four of the Mayo and District Motorsport Club’s Loose Surface Autocross at Harrington’s Quarry near Swinford. In a tight battle he finished just over a second ahead of Derry man James Cassidy in his similar buggy, with Ronan Mackle from Down rounding off a buggy filled podium in third. Despite not being able to participate due to family commitments however, it was Derek Deane from Williamstown in his JB Buggy who had done enough in the earlier rounds to take the title for 2013. Deane won the first three rounds to see him win the coveted championship, as the best three rounds from the four events of the year count towards the final points tally.

Deane’s hat-trick at autocross

Derek Deane’s run of good luck continued as he annihilated the competition at round three of the Mayo and District Motorsport Club’s Loose Surface Autocross at Harrington’s Quarry near Swinford. Since his first win Deane seems unstoppable as he now makes it three wins in a row. Deane put in an incredible time on the third run of the day to finish over five seconds ahead of his brother Mervyn driving a similar JB Buggy. Mervyn managed to fend off the challenges of Martin Tynan in his impressive Mitsubishi Evo 8 to finish second. Foxford’s James McGreal was the next top Mayo man, finishing to round off the top 10 in his sprightly Subaru Impreza. The Mayo and District Club Award was won by Adrian Deane. The event was also the fourth counting round of the inaugural 2013 National Loose Surface Autocross Championships, a series that coincidentally Derek Deane has been victorious on the opening three rounds off.
