The quest to become the Triton Showers Junior National Rally champion is set for a dramatic conclusion that goes down to the wire on the final round, the Westlodge Hotel Fastnet Rally in Bantry on the final Sunday of October.
Three drivers – Meath’s Brian Brady, Donegal’s Michael Boyle and Monaghan’s Johnny Treanor, all in Honda Civics, are vying for the title.
Results from the penultimate round, the Lady Gregory Hotel Galway Summer Rally, were revised on Monday morning last due to the exclusion of Johnny Treanor for an infringement of the rules. Brady failed to finish while business commitments meant Boyle didn’t enter the Gort based rally.
Currently and based on the best five scores Brady (41 points) – leads from Boyle (33 points) and Treanor (30 points), the latter pair can include all of the points from the Bantry rally while Brady can maximize his tally to 45 points. While there are several permutations, Brady or Boyle can become the Triton Junior champion by taking the ten points in Bantry.
The top prize is a VIP trip to join the Toyota Gazoo Racing Team at a European round of the 2018 World Rally Championship courtesy of Kelly’s Toyota. The winner will also qualify for a nomination for the Billy Coleman Young Driver of the Year award scheme.
The runner-up and third in the Triton Junior series will receive a tyre deal with compliments of Triton Showers worth €1250 and €750 respectively.
