Gallagher's Perfect Start

Motorsport Ireland, Billy Coleman Award Winner, Shaun Gallagher, began his two-month trip to Norway with a prefect start on the Mountain Rally Norway this weekend, when he finished 2nd in class and 21st overall in his new left drive Peugeot 206.

The event began Friday evening with four stages in the dark and Shaun began cautiously, while he adjusted to the high drops and fast stages. He was unhappy with the gravel suspension on the snow and ice and so spent the next number of stages concentrating on car setup finishing the first day 2nd in class.

By the beginning of leg 2 Shaun was now settled in the car. He had adjusted perfectly to left-hand drive and was working well with new co-driver, David Moynihan. Day 2 was a day of learning for the young Donegal driver and he maintained his consistent pace throughout, easily holding 2nd in class all day.

Shaun will spend the next number of weeks working in John Hauglands Winter Rally School while preparing for his second event in two weeks time.
