Final Round Decider for Irish 205 Challenge

After five rounds and four different winners the Irish 205 Challenge is preparing for its final round. The race for the title is a two-way battle, which will be fought out at the Tipperary Forestry Stages Rally on 27th March. Nine points separate double winner Graeme Colfer and winner of the previous round Seamus O'Grady but with twenty points up for grabs, this event looks set to be a cracker.

The event is based in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork and will consist of a compact route with 50 stage miles. It is difficult to split the championship hopefuls; Graeme's consistency and speed throughout the year will be difficult to beat, while Seamus took victory on the only other gravel round of the series.

As well as the overall title, the junior, senior and co-driver categories of the championship are also up for grabs in the woods. There is a three-way fight between, Colfer, O'Grady and Adrian McBride for the junior title; the senior title to open any of five different drivers and either Jack Newman or Oonagh Roche could lift the co-drivers title.

With all these battles going on, the final round of inaugural Rory Galligan Rally Irish 205 Challenge will certainly provide a lot of excitement.
