Irish team of Shaun Gallagher and David Moynihan took part in their second rally of their eight week trip to Norway this weekend. They were competing in the Snofreser’n Rally, a six stage, seventy mile event.
The day began with a frustrating start when Shaun caught cars on each of the first three stages. This made visibility very difficult from the snow plumes and Shaun lost a lot of time.
It was not until stage 4 that Shaun got his first
clean run of the day and he set the fastest time moving him up to 2nd in class. The Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Award winner was now locked in a battle with Norwegian driver, Erik Nordahl. They swapped times over the next number of stages and starting the
last stage Shaun was lying seven seconds behind.
Despite setting fastest time on final stage Shaun finished 2nd by 0.9.
“I am very happy with the result. We’ve now had two good results here and I am learning more that I could have imagined.” commented Shaun.
Shaun’s next event is a round Norwegian round of the European Championship in three weeks time. He would also like to thank Peter and Neville who stood in at the last minute to service.
