Killarney-based co-driver Noel O’Sullivan will contest the British Rally Championship beginning with tomorrow’s Cambrian Rally in North Wales.
He is on pacenote duty for Welsh driver Osian Pryce who is making a return to the series after a two-year absence.
They will field a Hyundai i30 R5 in the six-round series that visits England, the Republic of Ireland, Belgium, Northern Ireland and Scotland between now and next September.
“It is my first time sitting with Osian,” said O’Sullivan. “I am really looking forward to [working] with a new driver, team and rally.”
They will be amongst championship favourites and up against defending champion Matt Edwards. Junior World Rally Championship driver Rhys Yates and last year’s runner-up Tom Cave.
A few outright victories is a fair target for the Kerry/Welsh team.
O’Sullivan will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Killarney man Mikie Galvin who won the British title in 2017.
