Murray takes Back to Back victories in Imola
2004-10-18 - By Philip Byrne

Murray takes Back to Back victories in Imola Dunlop Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of the Year Eoin Murray impressed with two wins at Imola this weekend in the final two rounds of the European Alfa Challenge.

Eoin, who races with backing from Holfeld F1 Components, Alfa Romeo Ireland & Gary Aron Homes qualified in fourth position for the first of the two races of the weekend. By
the second lap he had hit the front and despite relentless pressure he led all the way to the chequered flag.

The win in race one secured him pole position for race two and the young Irish driver was not about to squander this opportunity by driving a faultless race from Pole to Flag
and securing the top step of the podium for the second time of the weekend, this brings his tally to five podiums out of eleven starts for the season.

An obviously pleased Eoin said afterwards I am really delighted with the job the team have done for me this weekend and I am thrilled to have won. I have had a number of podiums in the series but my aim for the season was to learn the tracks and win a race; now I have won two races and hold the lap records for Valencia and Magny-Cours.

Eoin is already in discussions with teams in relation to next years Championship however the possibility of a drive in the European Touring Car Championship also beacons.
