2005 Moonshine Rally Report

2 December 2005

Brian and Alan Dorman ended the navigation rallying year with a perfect score on Queen's University Motor Club's Moonshine Rally. On paper, they looked like the overwhelming favourites for the rally win, and they duly delivered in style, by cleaning the 60 mile County Down route in their Mk I Escort. They were initially challenged by Ronnie and Aaron Mitchell, who had only dropped 1 minute after 55 miles, but a nightmare finish, including visiting the same control 3 times, saw them finish on 56 marks in 7th place. Second went to the Mini of John and Amanda Lindsay. On Amanda's second only rally she destroyed the rest of the Beginner Class, and beat every one of the more experienced Novice crews. Third were Raymond Kelly and Colin McDowell, whose steady approach won them the Novice Class. Fourth were Hubert and Elaine Scott, and fifth were James Nicol and Rachel Muldoon, who had a great run spoilt by missing an early control.
