Simply Devine! thumbnailFeeny man Callum Devine (right) with co-driver Keith Moriarty won the Prestone Motorsport News Junior BRC.

FEENY has a new British champion as driver Callum Devine raced to clinch the Prestone Motorsport News Junior BRC, and the 30,000 cash prize - one the biggest prizes in British motorsport.
After a blistering drive on the opening leg to win the first round, Devine shifted the balance of power from rival William Creighton into his own hands ahead of the second round. The Opel ADAM R2 driver and his co-driver Keith Moriarty had to finish in front of his rival to secure the Junior prize.
Creighton and co-driver Liam Regan (Peugeot 208 R2) had been consistent all season and had never been out of the top four on each round.
A fourth place on the opening round then put the pressure on the Irish crew as they had to beat Devine in a straight fight on the final round of the championship.
A puncture on the third night stage on Saturday evening resulted in a two and half minute deficit.
The fans were sadly denied a front-wheel-drive shootout as Creighton's eventual fifth was sadly not enough as Devine finished in a comfortable second on the final round of the season.
