22nd April 2007
Glanmires Alan Dwyer scored a strong fifth for the Cork Racing Team in the opening round of the Irish Formula Ford Championship at Mondello Park as Portmarnocks Robert Creegan scored a double race win for the Cliff Dempsey Racing Team.
Having qualified ninth, Alan made steady progress through the race and was able to take advantage of a satefy car period to steal some vital championship points. Robert Creegan led home Rob Barrable and Neville Smyth in Round 1 with Paul Dagg in second and Neville Smyth third in Round 2.
Unfortunately Dwyer retired in Round 2 with an engine problem while a terminal engine also put Micheal Fitzgerald out before the race after testing on Saturday. The Cork Racing Team travels next to Kirkistown in Northern Ireland on May 22nd for Round 3 of Irish Formula Ford Championship.
