The weather played havoc with the weekend’s motorsport schedules, with two major championship events having to be curtailed or abandoned.
The opening round of the Parts for Cars National Rallycross series at Mondello Park was halted before any of the finals could take place as sleet turned to heavy snow in mid-afternoon, with three times Irish champion Derek Tohill set to start the Supercar Final from pole position based on his heat results.
 Limerick MC’s Forestry Stages Rally at Rockchapel was another casualty of the conditions, being stopped for safety reasons after the two opening stages.
 Former National champions Pakie Duffy and Evin Hughes scored a narrow win in the Cavan Navigation Trial at Madabawn by a single mark from current title holders Derek Mackarel and Muireann Hayes, while Siobhan McCann took her second Sporting Trial victory of the season in the MEC Three Rock event at Brittas.
