October Sports Star of the Month: Anthony Cross
ANTHONY Cross from Bohernabreena rounded off another memorable Irish motor racing season with a double success at the Kirkistown Racing Circuit in County Down in October.
Already crowned the Selco.ie Formula Vee Champion as a consequence of finishing runner-up to Owen Kelly during a previous meeting at Mondello Park, Cross was determined to end the latest campaign in fine style.
He managed to do just that by not only winning the final leg of the Formula Vee series, but also coming away with the Emerson Fittipaldi Trophy in his second race of the day.
This brace of victories ensures the Tallaght man finished the 2022 with three pieces of silverware, following his Holmpatrick Trophy triumph earlier in the year.
In securing this season’s Formula Vee crown, Cross has become the first driver to win the title for a fifth year in succession.
While Dundalk man Brian Hearty has won it six times, there were gaps between some of his successes.
