Kris Loane won the Leinster Trophy Race from Ivor McCullough and Noel Dunne. The race had to be restarted after a controversial tangle between rivals Paul Dagg and Dunne at Tarzan which pitched Daggs Van Diemen RF92 into a multiple barrell roll which he fortunately escaped from.
On Saturday Alan Dwyer rescued 9th in the Van Diemen RF01 after being pushed of circuit in the first corner following Goerge McAlpins crash with Ivor McCullough in Round 11 of the Irish Formula Ford Championship. Micheal Fitzgeralds Swift SC92 retired with engine trouble after the opening lap. Paul Dagg won from Noel Dunne and Kris Loane.
Cork Racing was promoting the Sony Pictures NASCAR comedy, ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby', starring Will Ferrell, at Mondello Park and both cars carried distintive liveries to promote the film which opens in cinemas on 15th September.
