David Moffett has been nominated for this year’s Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver Award for his performances during March and April.
The 24 year-old from Ballinode, Co Monaghan, drove his Toyota Starlet to top ten positions in the Mayo and Monaghan Rallies, scoring a win and a second place in the hotly contested class 13 for Modified cars. On home ground, he finished an excellent tenth overall in Monaghan, an event which boasted the biggest entry of the year so far.
David comes from a family with a very strong rallying background, and began competing in rallies in 2007, scoring several Junior class wins, before going on to take overall victory in the 2014 Sligo Pallets Border Championship. He also won the Junior section of last year’s Donegal International Rally, and considers these two achievements as the highlights of his career to date.
He intends contesting the Border Championship again this year, and would also like to tackle the two wheel drive award in the Triton ShowersNational series next year, along with some overseas events.
David recently set up his own business, Moffett Spares and Services, and together with the Squealing Pig Bar and Restaurant, Hydraseals and Maurice Moffett Ltd., they sponsor his rallying.
The winner of the Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver of the Year Award receives €50,000 worth of support to contest stage rallies nationally & internationally in 2016 along with the support of Billy Coleman co-ordinator, Tom Walsh, while the two runners-up will receive free entries into a number of MI permitted events in 2016, along with co-ordinator support.
Five bi-monthly winners are selected from January-February, through to September-October, joined by the winner of the Junior Championship in the Triton Showers National series, the winner of the Junior category in the Valvoline National Forestry Championship, and a wildcard selection, as the award finalists.
