The Buchanan Cup was held on the Annaclone circuit and was won by Mark Williamson.

The Ernie Hall Cup was held on the Castlewellan road circuit and was won by Davy Mc Knight.

This year the club held two new hill climb events which turned out to be very successful.

The first one, the Blackwood cup was won by Emily Roberts and the second, Need a Print Cup was won by Davy White.

Well done to all who took part, who won and to those who helped organise these events.

There are so many more things that go on behinds the scenes to make these races happen.
