Courtney drives to success in Knockalla Hillclimb


Joe Courtney

Victories for Joe Courtney on both days of the Donegal Hillclimb weekend clinched the Naylor Engineering National Hillclimb and Sprint Championship for the Galway driver, repeating his title of last year.

Heading into the final two rounds of the series over the famed and scenic Knockalla Coast Road near Portsalon, Courtney's only rival for the title, Michael Connolly from Carlow, needed to win on both Saturday and Sunday, but his challenge was ended when his Gould slid off the road on the opening day.

Wesley Patterson was the top Donegal Motor Club Member.

Brendan Mc Daid and JP Logue had top 20 finishes on Sunday.
