Junior Suzuki Swift Sport Cup offers up Pirelli Star Driver finalist

Niki Bjerg and Arly Larson made a stunning comeback last weekend on the final round of the Suzuki Swift Sport Cup, the Tempest Rally, to secure the one-make series' Junior title and with it a place in the Pirelli Star Driver shootout.

Dane Bjerg will join seven other finalists for a chance to win a fully funded drive in the 2009 MSA British Rally Championship, the final place being decided on Wales Rally GB in early December.

The final will take place in the week immediately after the last round of the Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship, when the hopefuls will be assessed by a panel of judges.

The challenge will include not only their ability in the car, but fitness, knowledge of the sport, media skills and a final interview. 2007 champion Darren Gass already knows what it is to take the prize, although the eventual winner will not know what vehicle he will drive until early in the New Year.

The purpose of the Pirelli Star Driver scheme is to help progress talent in the sport, with the ultimate goal to help a future World Rally Champion make the next step up the ladder.
