Henry wins, Moffett is Forest champion thumbnailDesi Henry was in fine form at the wheel of his Skoda Fabia R5 in the Omagh forests

SCRATCH times on all but one special stage handed Desi Henry and his Skoda Fabia team-mate Liam Moynihan a commanding twenty seven second victory on Saturday's Bushwhacker Rally in Omagh.
Making his first loose surface outing since the Scottish Rally back in May, Henry enjoyed a trouble-free day at the wheel of his Czech built machine to record only his second outright win of the year.
“It was nice to come here and get the win," he said. "It's a surface we always seem to go well on."
Another driver heading home happy was Jonny Greer, who was making his debut on a rally famously known as the 'Omagh Grand Prix'. Runner-up Northern Ireland Championship points for the Citroen DS3 competitor means the series will be decided on the last round: November's Tour of the Sperrins.
With all his dropped scores used up Greer knew that he had to finish ahead of defending champion Derek McGarrity to keep his title hopes alive and he managed to do that despite opening the road.
