Another Win for Gallagher in World Rally Championship

Shaun Gallagher picked up yet another prize in the World Rally Championship (WRC) this weekend, earning himself a Citroen-supported drive in a forthcoming round of the Championship.

Gallagher took top honours in the Citroen-sponsored C2 Junior Experience, which rewards the top Junior driver competing in a Citroen car with a chance to compete in a round of the Championship with the full backing of the Citroen Sport Factory Team.

Gallagher was jubilant at this additional accolade, saying: "Taking the Rookie of the Year title in Catalunya last weekend was wonderful, and just a week later in Corsica to confirm that I've also won the C2 Junior Experience prize is such a thrill, because it means I get to compete on another round with the full might of the Citroen Sport team behind me."

With Citroen competitors, reigning World Champion Sebastien Loeb and Danni Sordo taking successive podium finishes in the last two rounds, Gallagher is confident that the support of Citroen Sport will add an edge to his driving.
