Results Imokilly Hillclimb “The Sweep” 2017

The Irish Hillclimb Championship continued last weekend with the Imokilly Hillclimb. This 2,2 kilometre long road near Dungarven is also known as “The Sweep”. Unlike the previous event in Wexford, at Imokilly the track was identical on both days. The event got off to a bad start on Saturday morning. A big storm had swept the area during the night. The wind had blown a lot of leaves and branches on the racing surface. This took a long while to clean up which severly delayed the timeschedule. In the end only one race session was possible on Saturday. The weather had improved on Sunday and this time all three races were completed.

Joe Courtney was unbeatable this weekend. He set fastest times in all sessions on Saturday and Sunday. With his double victory Courtney increases his lead in the championship. Robert Dwane was the runner-up on both days. On Sunday Frank Byrnes came quite close to Dwane and finished third. On Saturday Byrnes had retired from the one and only race. This allowed Rory Stephens to claim the final podium spot.
