James brings home All-Ireland honours

AN ACLARE teenager has brought home All-Ireland honours after winning a top prize for autograss racing.

After stepping up from junior special, James Kent won the All-Ireland Auto Grass Finals in his class 5 auto grass car last weekend in Lismore, Co. Waterford, and in doing so added another title to his growing list. The competition was run over three events, two of which were held in Co. Down.

The 16-year-old was one of only two in his class who qualified for the English Nationals this year, a two-day event held in Wales, and made the finals in his first attempt.

The following week James raced again on the same track in a dash for cash and remarkably won all races in his class.
