Delaney Mondello Winner

Trevor Delaney won the last round of the Championship at Mondello Park on Saturday. He led at the crucial time to take the victory on countback after Paul Sammin's roll into the gravel trap of Honda brought out the red flag a nd an end to the race.
Delaney, Sammin, and Dave Heavey were the three racers who streaked away fr om the front of the pack at the start; amazingly they pulled the lead while swapping positions and fighting amongst themselves. The lead was reduced however with the appearance of the safety car following a spin by Robbie Parkes at Dunlop. Most drivers agreed afterwards that the race should have been stopped on safety grounds and conveyed this to the organising club. Delaney had the best restart with Heavey, and Sammin in hot pursuit. John Downey tagged along with the leaders as they once pulled away from the chasing pack. The group only splintered when Sammin rolled after contact fr om behind handing victory to Delaney.

Garry Newsome scooped the win and with it the National Championship title at Kirkistown on Saturday. Paul Sammin started from pole but it was the fast starting Trevor Delaney, and Stephen Kershaw who were best off the line ahead of the 28 cars. Sammin did get himself back in front but the race was redflagged when he spun on oil exiting the hairpin. The incident also eliminated Dave Heavey.
Delaney led the restart before an error let through Newsome and Kershaw who both streaked away at the front. Delaney was running in 3rd before a spin at Fishermans cost him a podium place. Ray Moore snatched that on the last lap. Newsome held off Kershaw to win and with the demise of Robbie Parkes midrace the title of National Champion
