Motorsport Ireland drivers Craig Breen and Daniel McKenna restart their World Rally Championship ambitions this weekend. Finland will be the third round of both Breen and McKenna’s title assaults. Breen, who will compete in the WRC2 category in his Peugeot 208 T16 will be out to make amends for an early retirement on the previous round of his campaign in Portugal. Breen finished second amongst the WRC2 runners on the opening round of the season in Monte Carlo. Despite only being 24, this will be Breen’s seventh time tackling Rally Finland, one of the most specialised events in the calendar.
In comparison to Breen’s experience in Finland, it will be an entirely new experience for Junior World Rally Championship contender, Daniel McKenna. The Monaghan driver has endured a season of highs and lows to date, leading both Monte Carlo and Portugal but due to mechanical issues and an off road excursion, McKenna only has a handful on points heading to Finland. It isn’t sort him that phases him however, speaking ahead of the event McKenna said; “I know that I have the pace at this level, I just need to get some consistency. I have being driving well within myself this year and I can’t wait to tackle the legendary roads of Finland. A good result this weekend could turn my season around.”
At home, Limerick Motor Club will host a hillclimb and sprint this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. The event will be based near Effin and a barbecue will be held on each evening. On Sunday, Killarney and District Motor Club will be running the Jimmy Devane Memorial Grass Surface Autocross. The event will be held at Aghadoe and a spectator friendly viewing area will offer a safe view of the whole track and a family fun day will also run concurrent to the event to make it as family friendly as possible.
