Our agents can turn their hand to many things, including car rally driving!

J & J Services, Carlow competed (and thrived!) in the Carlow Stages Car Rally despite a stint away from the sport. The rally was held in county Carlow in the South East of Ireland on the 20th May 2018.

Colin O’Toole, J&J Service’s shop manager and former National Car Rally champion, navigated by Thomas Cuddihy, was competing in his first rally following a couple years away from the sport. He competed in a custom built ‘Hobbyweld by J & J Services’ sponsored Proton Satria. Carlow’s Stages Rally is a closed road tarmac rally, which covered 90km of challenging back roads. Despite some teething troubles mechanically (and rusty driving following his return to competition!) Colin finished a fine 53rd overall and 2nd in class.
