December 31st 2015 - Happy New Year!
2015 was a great year, full of highs and lows - Alyx won her first Motorsport Ireland final and went on to win three in total. She finished the championship in fifth place - her highest finish in her time in cadets. Then for the last round of the championship she moved up to X30 Junior. She's still getting used to the extra power and grip, but hopefully by the time the new season starts she'll be on top of it.
We have put together a gallery of highlights from the year which you can view here. A selection of images are also below.
