Callum Devine finishes third in Rally Hungary

Despite losing almost three minutes with two punctures and spin over the two days, Ireland’s Callum Devine yesterday finished third overall in Rally Hungary, the final round of the European Rally Championship.

 At the wheel of a Hyundai i20, the 25-year-old Derry driver had never tackled any of the slippery, tricky stages before, but was soon on the pace and closed the weekend in style, setting best time on the final stage, having earlier been second quickest on three of the 13 tests.

 Martin Tynan and Fintan Clerkin were the winners of the Monaghan Drumlin Navigation Trial at Newbliss, the second round of the National Championship, with novice pair Emmet Sherry and Paddy Corcoran taking the runner up position, four marks behind after a challenging 110-mile route.

 On a good weekend for Irish drivers overseas, National Rally champions Josh Moffett and Andy Hayes won the Jim Clark Rally in Scotland ahead of multiple Scottish champion David Bogie, with Young Racing Driver of the Year Charlie Eastwood winning the LMGTE AM class in the 4 Hour World Endurance Championship race at Shanghai, to head the WEC drivers’ points table in his class, driving an Aston Martin Vantage AMR for Team TF Sport.
