not the 3 i would have chosen! i think these 3 will progress in rallying no matter if they win the award or not.

I'm disappointed at the choices as these 3 lads are well financed and I feel the money could be put to better use by some people who struggle to put budgets together.

Ladies and Gentlemen .

Welcome again to the Motorsport Ireland Billy Coleman Award Farce.

Focusing on next year already we have decided to keep it real and true and tell you dont bother your arse applying unless you already have a silver spoon in your mouth.


Im sorry but who did Brian beat this year? He is not a bad driver but he doesnt need the award to go further?

Same for Mc Hale, exact same, good driver but he doesnt need the award he can go rallying anyway.


And who is Ian Barret?

Shocked. I would have thought Peter Wilson would have been on there.

I thought it would, and should have been Gareth, Brian and Peter.

There are better drivers than Barret left out of that list- Peter Wilson is the glaring obvious one, but there are others, Gordy Coleman is far better tryer than Barret.

Mc Hale and Brian O deserve recognition surely, but that aside its a farce and obviously more politically driven than we could ever imagine.

Im E Mailing motorsport Ireland to tell them polietly that this is not a real and true judgement.

Point them to the poll on this fine site- how many votes did Barret get?

anyone who feels the same (and can tell it polietly) its [email protected]

IF this is true, and I really hope it isn't!!! I think rallying in Ireland is going down the pan, Bigtime!!!

I'm speechless and moritified at the same time.

Why don't we get MI's name changed to "Deaf, Dumb and Stupid" sport Ireland.

Where did they find the people who run this? The moon or a mental institution...

Motorsport Ireland my a*se!! Thats not called sport, just a competition to see who knows who!!!

No disrespect Brian - its not aimed at you.

Ian Barrett is a very good driver but im quite sure Kevin Kelleher would beat him.He has had some great drives his year and every one seems to have passed over him

after hearing talk in the pub about last years award. i know 2 of teh judges that were on it. the other 3/4 were from sports concail. the two were saying that they were asking stupid questions and dident have a clue what rallying was and what it involved...

i know that mayo motor club arent happy with it and they were planning on a few letters and get it out in the open on what a farse it really is..
