Irish Tarmac Championship comes to the boil in Cork
The new-look Irish Tarmac Championship will go down to the wire in a winner-takes-all battle on the Cork ‘20’ Rally.
Alistair Fisher – nephew of Tarmac legend Bertie – leads the standings heading into the event, but home favourite and three-time British Rally champion Keith Cronin could steal the title away with victory. The Cork driver took his first win in an R5 car on the event last year and will be looking to recoup something from the year after his Brc-bid ended badly.
If Fisher and Cronin hit trouble, Sam Moffett is the driver in prime position to pick up the pieces. But fourth and fifth in the points, Josh Moffett and Jonny Greer, are also in the hunt. Whatever the result, the ITRC will get a first-time champion and its first winner of the R5 era.
Opel Adam driver Callum Devine has a strong lead in the R2 category, but there’s still an outside chance that Peugeot 208 R2 driver William Creighton could usurp him should he have any issues.
