From Scotstown, Co Monaghan, Jonny Treanor has been nominated for this year’s Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Young Rally Driver Award for his performances in May and June.
The 23 year-old , drove his Honda Civic to victory in the Junior sections of the Midland and Circuit of Munster Rallies, and went on to make it a hat-trick of wins in the Sligo Stages Rally. This leaves him as a strong contender for the Junior title in both the Triton Showers National Championship and the Sligo Pallets Border series. He hopes that he will have a successful run through the remaining rounds in both championships and that he can celebrate at least one title at the year-end, and hopefully both of them.
Jonny began rallying in 2010, starting as a navigator and co-driver, and changed over to driving after a few years. His first stages rally as a driver was in Mayo in 2015 at the wheel of a Vauxhall Nova, and he changed to his current car last year. The highlight of his career to date has been his first Junior win in Midland this year.
He works as a heavy goods mechanic, and his principal sponsors are FDR Car Sales in Donegal Town, Howden Tools and McNally Crane Hire in Monaghan.
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 2018 along with the support of Billy Coleman co-ordinator, Ger Healy, while the two runners-up will receive free entries into a number of MI permitted events in 2018, along with co-ordinator support.
Five bi-monthly winners are selected from January-February, through to September-October, along with the highest placed eligible drivers from both the Junior Championship in the Triton Showers National series and the Junior category in the Valvoline National Forestry Championship, and a wildcard selection, as the award finalists.
