The Billy Coleman Award - for the Young Rally Driver of the Year(View Previous Winners)



The Billy Coleman Award was created in the year 2000 to help young Irish rally drivers take the next step into international rallying and emulate the achievements of the great Billy Coleman.

The first recipient of the award, Rory Galligan, certainly fulfilled that ambition and competed as a works driver for Peugeot and Mitsubishi. Subsequent winners have continued that success, including 5 British Rally Championship titles and Junior World Rally Championship successes.

Sport Ireland fully recognises motorsport and are a partner in the award scheme ensuring a much improved package and giving the award higher status. The clubs running rallies under a national permit also contribute to the initiative.

All press releases relevant to the Billy Coleman Award will be published in the news section below but you will find much more content on the official Billy Coleman Award Facebook page.
