2003 Peugeot 206 Cup Champion, Shaun Gallagher, and co-driver, Rory Kennedy, won Groups N and finished a fantastic 2nd overall in this weekends Galloway Hills Rally in Scotland.

The 23-year-old, driving a Davy Geer Motorsport and Brendan Kelly backed Mitsubishi Evo VI, beat over thirty Groups N cars to win his class and battled against some of the top WRC and Group A cars to finish in 2nd position.

On the opening stage Shaun had to adjust to a new car, new co-driver and new pacenotes. This was also his first time to drive such a car on gravel.

Once adjusted to the car Shaun took the lead and held this until the final stage where he lost out to the Group A cars due to lack of power when accelerating out of the stages four chicanes.

"I am thrilled with the results, this was my first Group N victory and finishing 2nd overall topped off the event. It's a great end to a great season," commented Shaun.
