ASK Racing Reflects On A Successful Championship

The Tool Dynamics Supercar Championship came to an end in Mondello Park for the Leinster Trophy Races.

The Leinster Trophy race meeting is viewed as on of, if not the, most important race meeting in Irish Motorsport. On Saturday and Sunday September 17th and 18th, the championship winner for the most exciting championship in Irish Motorsport came to a nail biting end.

Coming into the weekend the championship gap had closed and with only 5 points between the top 4. Race 1 seen Peter Barrable take the podium followed closely behind by Championship leader Andy O'Brien and Sam Moffett in 3rd place. With the points gained from race 1, race 2 was to be the ultimate decider.

Both Barrable and O'Brien needed to win to take the title of Tool Dynamics Supercar Champion. Sam Moffet meanwhile was still in the running, with a catch, for Moffett to win he needed to finish in front of Barrable with O'Brien taking no points from the race. On a very wet day in Mondello, this was not impossible with the dreadful track conditions.

A bad start from Barrable left O'Brien in P1. Whilst O'Brien knew he needed to keep in front to win the championship, he wasn't let off easily with Barrable hot on his heels. The gap between P1 and P2 soon opened up as Barrable fought to defend his position to P3 Sam Moffett who was not letting this race get away from him.

With only minutes left in the race, Barrable suffered engine trouble and was forced to retire. This retirement brought about a new lease of life to Moffett who showed incredible skills and speed to catch up to O'Brien. A hard battle between the two and some great driving from both left many spectators in awe as we waited for O'Brien and Moffett to make their final appearance on the main straight.

Cheers could be heard from the O'Brien crew as Andy O'Brien crossed the line with Sam Moffett just seconds behind him.

The pace at the front of the grid has been shown throughout the series with the top 4 drivers proving their skills. As their pace has shown with podium finishes and front row qualifying throughout the year.

Many drivers have shown their potential as this championship grows in strength. The drivers have demonstrated that consistency is key for the Tool Dynamics Supercar Championship and that this brings rewards of its own by just keeping on the grid and getting race finishes and those ever important championship points.
