Irish Rally driver Shaun Gallagher begins his assault on the 2003 British Peugeot 206 Super Cup when he competes in round 1, the Border Counties Rally this Saturday the 22nd March. The Rally is a round of the New Pig Scottish Rally Championship. This event in run in the famous Kielder Forest and consists of forty-five stage miles over six stages.

The Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Award winner recently returned from Norway where he worked in the famous John Haugland Winter Rally School competed in three rounds of the Norwegian National Championship and is currently leading his class. The 22-year-old also took part in the first round of the Irish National Championship where he convincingly won class A6.

Shaun will be co-driven by Richard Pashley and the crew will have to draw on their combined wealth of experience, as Shaun will be adjusting back to gravel following a winter of snow, ice and tarmac rallying.

"I am really looking forward to the event, it will be good to return to the Cup and hopefully I will start the season with a win" commented Shaun.
