William Kellett from Kells, Co. Meath has been selected as the second nominee for the 2019 Motorsport Ireland Young Racing Driver of the Year for his performances in the month of May. 19 year-old William claimed a number of impressive results in the 2019 Keelan Construction Fiesta Zetec Championship, a series which he subsequently went on to win. He also secured the prestigious Hawthorn Trophy this season.
William started his Motorsport career at the age of 14, driving a Nissan Micra to a string of podium finishes in Junior Rallycross in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. William then converted the Micra for use in the Future Classics class in 2016 where he enjoyed a successful season before moving up to the Fiesta Zetec class, building up an impressive portfolio of wins, pole positions and fastest laps.
Having finished as runner up in the series last year, William ranks his championship success this year as his best achievement in the sport to date and he plans to see out his season by competing in the popular November Fiesta Six Hour race in Mondello Park. He would like to progress to the British Touring Car Championship or GT Racing in the coming years but wants to complete his studies first. William is his second year of studying Journalism and Media in the University of Limerick.
William’s car is backed by Dunshaughlin Motor Company, Dunshaughlin Motors, Express Spares, Carzone, The Tyre Brigade (Athlone), Mr Gearbox and Mr Clutch, Kellett Motorsport and Paul Kinnane Financial Services.
Having been selected as the second nominee for the 2019 season, William is now a contender for the prestigious Motorsport Ireland Young Racing Driver of the Year Award and the historic Sexton Trophy. This award is presented annually and is supported by Sport Ireland and Motorsport Ireland.
