France Beckons For Young Irish Rally Star

2003 was an outstanding year for Irish rally star, Shaun Gallagher, The 23-year-old won the British Peugeot 206 Super Cup and the junior title, finished 3rd overall and 1st Junior in the French Peugeot 206 Super Cup, 4th in the French Peugeot Gravel Championship and third in the Norwegian National Championship, despite only competing in three of the six rounds.

With an incredible consistency Shaun finished 21 events out of 25 and clocked up 16 podium positions, proving himself to be one of Europe's top young rally drivers during 2003.

For 2004, The Mullen Express Transport driver hopes to achieve even more and take the overall title when he competes in the French Peugeot 206 Cup (Volant 206). The French 206 Super Cup is one of Europe's best championships for young drivers. Shaun will compete in 8 rallies throughout France, on both gravel and asphalt. The championship boasts a prize of a Super 1600 works drive with Peugeot France in the 2005 French Championship.

"I am really excited about returning to the French Cup" commented Shaun. "Last year I was faced with a massive learning curve and was over the moon to take 3rd overall and win the Junior title. I hope to be able to draw on my experiences during 2003 and this year, go all the way and take the overall title.

The Championship kicks off Easter weekend (9th -- 11th April) with the Rallye Terre d'Auvergne in South East France.
