However he was not able to contain the Tippman on the third run and he finished in second place with a deficit of a half a second. Third overall was claimed by another Wexford driver John Mc Grath (JB Buggy) another second in arrears. In fourth position was Lionel Percy (Honda Special) ahead of Brian Hassett (Semog Buggy).
