MOTORSPORT Ireland has announced that Bandon’s Vincent McSweeney has been nominated for this year’s Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver Award following his performances during September and October.
The 26 year old Design Engineer with Liebherr in Killarney campaigned a Honda Civic to victory in the Southern 4 Rally Championship that concluded with the recent Westlodge Hotel Fastnet Rally.
He has enjoyed a superb season including sixth overall in the National section of last month’s Cork ‘20’ Rally and a dominant Class 11F victory.
Last February, he won the Junior category in the Galway International and the Abbeyleix Rally and a few months later on the Rally of the Lakes he was fourth overall and a class winner in the National section.
