From grassroots to stage rallying in three years
Kerry Motor Club’s ladder of motorsport opportunity has become a reality for one young Tralee man.
Daniel Chung will make his rally debut on the Banna Beach Hotel Kerry Winter Rally on November 12.
He is the newly crowned Kerry Motor Club KK Hydraulics Auto Solo Champion, just three years after joining the club and starting out as a novice.
Auto Solo is a form of low-speed grass roots motorsport, popular in America but introduced to Ireland by the Tralee-based club by long-serving member Tom Barrett just over ten years ago.
Chung joined the club in 2014, with limited knowledge on how to actually go about starting out in rallying. Three years on he is the club’s Auto Solo champion and will take on his first rally, next month, at the wheel of a newly acquired Toyota Starlet.
Club chairman PJ O’Dowd said: “This is the epitome of a young driver starting out, learning skills at basic level at the Auto Solos and transferring his knowledge to rallying. This shows what any young driver can achieve and the importance of clubs running entry level motorsport events.”
Entries have opened for the Banna Beach Resort Kerry Winter Rally and the event can be entered via:
