Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Award Winner, Shaun Gallagher, continued his winning ways by picking up no less than 7 trophies at the annual Peugeot Sport UK prizegiving, on Saturday (Nov 22nd).

The 23-year-old was confirmed 2003 British Peugeot 206 Super Cup champion at the Ulster Rally in September.

Along with the Championship Trophy, Shaun picked up the Junior Cup, for drivers under the age of twenty-five, the Dealers Cup and the Junior Dealers Cup representing Budgen Motors of Shrewsbury and the Overseas Award for his win on the Ulster Rally.

Co-driver, Richard Pashley picked up the co-driver award and the service team won best mechanics.

In France, the final round of the French Peugeot 206 Cup also took place at the weekend. Despite not being able to compete in the last round Shaun held his position at the top of the junior table and was crowned 2003 French Peugeot Junior Champion.

The Mullen Express Transport driver also took a fantastic 3rd position in the overall championship and his mechanics picked up the team award.

"I am absolutely thrilled, it certainly was a winning weekend" commented Shaun. "To win so many prizes in the UK championship was brilliant but to secure the French Junior Peugeot Championship and hold 3rd overall in the main cup was the icing on the cake."
