Sean Herlihy also picked up 2nd in Modern 1 behind Chris Gidney and ahead of Jim Dodd who both have MG ZR’s and ultimately the Link MG F award for first MG F across the line in the Championship.  Herlihy said wasn’t aware of all the trophies he was eligible for, “I forgot about the Link and Rookie awards! it was pretty cool and a big thank you to my parents who have been awesome all year and I have had so much fun.  A big thank you to the guys behind the scenes who make it happen but now I am keen for 2019… when is round 1?”.
