Moloney amongst prize-winners as MotorSport New Zealand Awards Evening takes place in Auckland.

Noel Moloney collected his prize for winning the co-drivers section of Category 5 in the 2021New Zealand Rally Championship on Saturday night

The Duagh native won the championship alongside Quentin Palmer in a Mitsubishi Lancer last season. The awards ceremony took place in Auckland on Saturday night.

“It was a great evening at the motorsport awards and honoured to receive the Category 5A challenge co-driver award for 2021,” he said.

“It wouldn’t have been possible to do this sport without the support from so many. Thank you once again to Quentin Palmer – one hell of a driver who deserves to be in Category 1. Hopefully in the future. Well done to our service team last year Ian, Lew, Foo, Rosco Sinead and Fi, we wouldn’t have been able to do it without you.

Thanks to Baigent Motors thanks for the sponsorship and the van and last but not least a huge thank you to all volunteers, organisers and clubs that give up their time to make sure we can compete. Finally thank you to Motorsport New Zealand for such a beautiful award.”

Moloney is well on his way to defending his Category 5 title – this time alongside Dave Seivers in a Subaru.

“We are now over halfway through the New Zealand Rally Championship for 2022, 4WD challenge class. A huge thanks to our main sponsors for the season; Ze Spark, Ze Plumb and the whole team at Ze Group- we couldn’t get these results without your support. We have had a solid season so far, taking away in class:  second in Rally of Otago, first in Rally of Whangarei and first in Rally of Hawkes Bay,” said Sievers.

“The last two rounds are based in Auckland- with the best World Rally Championship divers coming from all over the world to rally on New Zealand’s best roads. Come along and support us on September 29 to October.”
