Colin Rooney

Colin Rooney is Dan Rooney's son and he races his father's old yellow and blue Imp in the Imp-engined class at Lydden Hill. It has a semi space frame and competition number 14. See www.semsec.org.uk at the picture gallery. Look for September 28 (2003) which has the best photos of it. There are a few on some of the other dates.
Mr. Rooney senior raced it in Ireland.

Colin also restores Imps for friends & Franka - so well these Imps keep winning awards.

Colin Rooney on way back to paddock due to a misfire. Vince Frost, Martin Bramwell, Adrian Oliver and Coloin Rooney had been in contact before the event. Hence four Imps in competition ;-)
