Birr & District Motor Club members Liam and Alan Higgins struck a winning combination in their BMW in the recent Birr Stages Rally.

The local crew faced challenging conditions throughout the event which was the opening round of the Midlands East Rally Championship.

The pair powered on through the wet conditions to finish first in their class on a thrilling day of rallying in Nenagh.

The team thanked the organisers at Birr and District Motor Club, the marshalls and the crews sponsors, Garahy's Garage; McIntyre Building Contractors; Higgins Fuel Supplies and Fitzsimons Trade Car Sales.
