Two young Donegal drivers are in the running for this year’s Young Rally Driver of the Year award.
The two - Darragh McNern from Bruckless and Marty Gallagher, from Letterkenny - are among the last eight in the running for the prestigious Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver of the Year.
Darragh McNern, in a Toyota Corolla, finished in second place in the Triton Showers National Junior Rally Championship.
And Marty Gallagher in a Peugeot 208 was the highest placed eligible junior in the Valvoline Championship.
The winner of the Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver of the Year Award receives €50,000 worth of support to contest rallies nationally and internationally in 2019. He will also receive support from Billy Coleman co-ordinator, Sean McHugh.
The two runners-up will receive free entries into a number of MI permitted events in 2019, along with co-ordinator support.
The winners will be announced after the eight finalists go before an interview panel tomorrow (Tuesday) in Dublin.
