Ireland could win an FIA World Rally Championship title this weekend.
James Fulton, the man calling the notes for Josh McErlean is leading the FIA WRC2 Junior Co-driver championship ahead of this weekend’s Rally Spain.
Fulton’s nearest rival is Belgian Louis Louka who is co-driving for Gregoire Munster.
Munster and Louka would have to win both Spain and the final round in Japan and hope McErlean and Fulton do not score any points in Spain to deprive the Cavan man of the title.
It will be a busy week for Fulton as he has been named as Craig Breen’s co-driver, from Rally Japan, after regular co-driver Paul Nagle announced his retirement.
Fulton says winning the FIA WRC2 title would be a fitting way to bring his partnership with McErlean to an end.
“It would be very cool to win and a nice way to finish off with Josh,” he said. “Louis Louka is the main rival. They have entered Spain also, but we don’t know yet if they have entered Japan. So if they don’t go to Japan and I don’t even finish Spain I still win.”
