Irish rally team of Shaun Gallagher from Donegal and Cork's David Moynihan are currently gearing up for their second event during their eight-week trip to Norway. They will compete in the Snofreser'n Rally this weekend, which is a one day, six stage event. The rally is over 70 miles long run in the snow and ice of northern Norway.

On his last event two weeks ago, the Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Award winner, had a lot to adjust to, new car, new co-driver and new conditions but despite all this Shaun finished an excellent 2nd in class A6.

"This has been a wonderful experience competing in such difficult and challenging events" commented the 22-year old. "The last event was such a steep learning curve, particularly driving left hand drive for the first time but we were really happy with the result"

While preparing for the rally Shaun received yet another boost when he was voted Donegal's Motorsport Person of the Year at the Donegal Sport Stars Awards last Friday.
