Q1. When did you start Rallying: I think 1996? New Years Day rallysprint in Rosegreen, Peugeot 205 Rallye 1.3 Gp. A, F666 OKV
Q2. What was your best moment in Rallying: Winning the Gp. N Tarmac Championship in ’03, followed by winning the Imokilly Rally last year.
Q3. What are your plans for the Circuit of Kerry 2014: Given the massive entry for the rally, if we can finish, thats the first requirement, then anywhere in the top 6 would be a great result for us, top 10 is probably more realistic though.
Q4. Funniest Moment in rallying? While doing Shanara in the Lakes one year, after the start there is a (flat!!) jump with a smaller jump afterwards, we took it flat in 6th, hit the second jump with the back of the car and it took off into the hedge, somehow the car came back onto the road, I was delighted with myself, and said over the intercom something to effect of “great save, well done, etc….” Greg Shinnors was in the boss’s chair that day, and all I got from him was “ Shut up and keep driving” ! It was funny afterwards, honest! At least I can laugh about it now 😉
Q5. Favourite Rally & Stage? Tough one, toss up between, Ypres/Manx/Lakes. Favourite stage is easier, Ardgroom, all day everyday!
Q6. Anything else you want to say about Rallying? Been around rallies all my life, following around my Dad, Sean, since I was a very small boy. Been hooked since then. I love the friendships and banter at the start of the stages. The help everyone attitude, the great amount of people who give of their free time so that tens of thousands of people can get enjoyement from it. The fierce competition, the never say die mentality. Its the greatest sport in the world.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
