The daughter of a former winner of the Banna Beach Resort Kerry Winter Rally will make her rally debut on this weekend’s Garda Motor Club’s Baltinglass Rally ahead of a planned outing on next month’s local rally.
Katie Quinn, daughter of top local driver Mike Quinn, will drive the recently acquired Honda Civic that she shares with her boyfriend Eric Honan.
Katie has previously co-driven in the car, on Eric’s home event, the Clare Stages, last month but Sunday’s County Wicklow rally marks her first time in the driving seat. She is using the rally as a high-speed test ahead of Kerry Motor Club’s Winter Rally on November 12.
Making it an all family affair, her father has also placed an entry for the rally in his potent Ford Escort. He has finished in the top three in Baltinglass on several occasions in the past and, like his daughter, will use the six-stage rally as preparation for the local event he last won in 2013.
“It is a very a similar rally to Banna, that is why we are doing it, “said Mike. “I always had good runs up there and there is no point in Katie doing Banna without driving the car first. I did tell her if she gets a few class wins I will give her the Escort.”
