New prize launched in Ire­land to drive R5

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

A new class-based chal­lenge will give driv­ers in Ire­land and North­ern Ire­land the chance to win an event or test in an R5.

Points for the EARS R5 Chal­lenge are awarded based on your fin­ish­ing po­si­tion in class, not re­lated to other com­peti­tors in the chal­lenge. Any Mo­tor­sport Ire­land or AN ICC event counts.

The win­ner can choose 40 miles of gravel test­ing in an R5 car, or an en­try in an R5 to the Turkey Run Rally which is due to take place in De­cem­ber. Both would be in a PM Rally hire Ford Fi­esta R5.

The prize has been launched by EARS owner Phillip Moyni­han with the aim of giv­ing back to the ral­ly­ing com­mu­nity, 30 years af­ter tak­ing over the business.

His son, David, com­petes as a co-driver with Marty Mccor­mack in the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship.
