Lloyd Aims For More Stellantis Cup Success In Killarney

Welsh rally star Ioan Lloyd and co-driver Sion Williams will head back to Ireland this weekend (May 4/5) for round three of the Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup.

Lloyd, the 21-year old from Llandysul, will contest the Killarney Rally of the Lakes and says that the challenging asphalt rally is one of his favourite rallies of the season.

Ioan said: “The Rally of the Lakes is a rally I really like. It is an awesome event with a lot of classic Irish asphalt stages like Moll’s Gap and the Tim Healey Pass. It’s one of my dad’s favourite rallies as well.”

Lloyd and Williams set a mighty pace on the opening round of the championship, the West Cork Rally in March, to win the first round of the new high profile one-make series, which is designed to spotlight the best young talent from across the UK and Ireland.

Lloyd was driving his Peugeot 208 Rally4 and scored maximum points in Cork. Unfortunately, they missed out on another maximum score on the Rallynuts Severn Valley Stages last month when a harmless spin in the Welsh forests ended with the car beached and unable to go any further. “There was no damage to the car on the Rallynuts so we’ll be ready to go to Killarney,” said Lloyd.

Now, Lloyd and Williams are going back to Ireland for the famous Killarney Rally of the Lakes, one of the toughest and most challenging events on the Irish schedule. This will be round three of the Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup, and Lloyd is determined to challenge for category victory on the two-day rally.

The Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup features eight rounds, four in Ireland and four in the UK. After the Killarney event, there is a six week gap until the fourth round of the championship in Donegal in late June. The calendar also includes Ioan’s home event of Rali Ceredigion, which is based in Aberystwyth at the end of August.
