Callum crowned Young Rally Driver of the Year thumbnailCallum Devine was presented with the Billy Coleman award for the Young Rally Driver of the Year at the Beta Tools Motorsport Ireland awards ceremony in Dublin.

CLAUDY driver Callum Devine has won the Billy Coleman award for the Young Rally Driver of the Year. The 23 year old received the prestigious award at the Beta Tools Motorsport Ireland awards ceremony in Dublin last week which was attended by Mr. Brendan Griffin, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport; Dr Una May, Director of Participation & Ethics, Sport Ireland; Mr Martin McKenna, President of Motorsport Ireland, members of the media, award recipients and their guests.
The local driver was nominated for the prestigious award on the back of some fantastic results this year. He had many standout performances particularly while winning the Junior British Rally Championship and when claiming victory in his class at the Ypres Rally in Belgium.
Callum fended off a number of other great young drivers to take top spot in what has been described as one of the closest decisions in recent years.
As part of the award, Callum will receive support to the value of 50,000 Euro for the 2018 season.
