Posted: January 8, 2014 in Uncategorized


Monaghan Motor Club capped off a truly inspiring year for its members with the news that Stephen Wright has been crowned the Billy Coleman award winner as young rally driver of the year for 2013. Stephen along with his sister and co-driver Suzanne , who was undoubtedly a major factor in his success lifted a plethora of awards this year in his Group N EVO 9. This included being crowned group N winner on the Irish International Tarmac Championship for 2013,  3rd in group N on the Dunlop National Rally Championship along with top 10 finishes in a number of events throughout the year. Stephen and Suzanne are also very competitive in the forests with many top 10 results . The Newbliss native has followed in the footsteps of Daniel Mc Kenna and Sam Moffett who were worthy winners over the past two years to make it a hatrick for Monaghan Club members. We wish Stephen and Suzanne all the very best in their endeavours for 2014 and we will try to report on their progress throughout the year.
