DMCC Christmas Grand Prix 2018.....

There are many famous races around the world, Le Mans 24 hour, Daytona 500, the Monaco GP. But the one that beats them all is the Dublin Model Car Club Christmas GP....and the racing today proved it...

The day started off busy, with lots of drivers arriving early. Spirits were good and it was clear there was a lot of cabin fever after the christmas break. There were a total of 8 heats for qualifying, with 39 entries. There was also a good showing from Northern Ireland, which is great to see.

Plenty younger racers, which is so important for the sport....

Qualifying was close in all classes and it was a real fight for drivers to make the A finals in Clubman and Open 2 Wheel Drive.

Finals were great to watch, and there was some real fights between Alan, Mick and Tony in 2wd Open. But elsewhere in the same final there was some really close racing, Gary, Lee and Rob couldnt afford to make any mistakes all afternoon. In Clubman, some of the dads had no finger nails left watching Leon and Ciaran fight it out.

Well done to all the racers who won their finals
