Irish team hope to extent championship lead.

Ireland's Shaun Gallagher will take part in the latest event of his Norwegian campaign when he competes in the Rally Finnskog this weekend. This is a classic winter rally run deep in the forests of Finnskog, Norway. There are fourteen stages, which are noted for being fast and technical, each over 30km in length. Shaun will have to draw on his extensive night navigation experience over the two legs as almost half the stages will be run in darkness.

The Billy Coleman Award Winner and co-driver David Moynihan took the championship lead following the last round, when they finished 2nd in class A6 in the Snofreser'n Rally three weeks ago. The Irish pair will be hoping to continue their excellent run of good form and extent their eight point advantage at the top of the table.

"I am really excited about this event, we have a good weeks testing and I am completely happy with the car" reported Shaun. "This is our third event here this winter I am really beginning to settle into the conditions and driving style now. It should be a good event"
