2012 McHenry 3rd In Dunlop Abarth Championship

In 2012 Barry-John returned to the Dunlop Abarth Championship as champion. Driving with the number 1 plate was a real dream come true. He was up against tuff competition though with Alister Kellett returning and the Kellett Motorsport team running 4 Abarths. It was a very enjoyable season and Barry-John finished 3rd in the championship with his only win coming at the Leinster trophy race in Mondello Park, but he had a fantastic two podiums at the new and very fast Bishopscourt track, in fact he visited the podium 7 times threw out the season but disappointingly missed the Phoenix Park motor races due to a hand injury playing Rugby. He did get to commentate at the event though in front of a massive crowd of over 50,000 over the weekend, so that was very enjoyable. All in all a fantastic seasons racing for both him and the team. The team had drivers in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 8th in the championship.
Barry-John’s 2012 Sponsors were Tom Kane Recovery, Europcar, Speedy Tyres Artane, JH Autobody, Dunshaughlin Motor Comapany and Carsireland.ie
