The Morrison BMW 6k road race took place in ideal conditions last night. It was the 3rd race of the series and once again attracted a very good entry as precious points were down for winning on the final night of the 3-race league as there was plenty to run for in all four Divisions. There were 46 teams entered and except for one team all the other teams were in with a chance of success, brilliant competition. The Club would again like to thank Gary Morrison and Morrison BMW Cahir for sponsoring this year’s series. Last night’s race was won by Jimmy Boland in 19 mins 44 secs, 2nd Colm McCarthy (The Regular Blues) in 22 mins 38 secs and 3rd man was Ian Purcell (IP Physical Therapy Team E) in 23 mins 1 sec. The top three women were Dympna Ryan (Where is the Finish) in 22 mins 49 secs, 2nd was Kealey Tideswell (STGH 2) in 23 mins 51 secs and 3rd was Suzanne Shine (In it to Win It) in 25 mins 6 secs. The Club would like to thank all the team Captains for all their help in making this series of race a brilliant success. The Club would also like to thank Tipperary ETB for the use of Colaiste Cheitinn as race Headquarters and to Tess Kiely for all her help, the Loreto Convent for the use of their facilities as the finish, the Gardai and the Civil Defence. We would also like to acknowledge the help of all our stewards and officials throughout the series, very much appreciated.
