Dempsey, Crozier and Hall go at it mid race!
Another GT race, this time from 1985. The works TMC Costin, now into it’s third season, has sprouted a few aerodynamic aids and changed colour from red to green. Running as Team Apple, they also had a horde of other sponsors onboard. The MG Midget based Lotus twin cam powered MDGT of Morgan Dempsey and the Maguire Mini- Ford of George Crozier...

Another cracker from FF1600. In this one, the unbeaten Vivion Daly gets jumped off the line by the spectacular Fionn Murray in the works Crossle. The ensuing battle is enthralling and gets a little heated at times. Cliff Dempsey, John Coffey and Mike Edgar are not too far away, just in case they can pick up the pieces!
