Future Junior ERC stars revealed with Stellantis Cup line-up

The Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup IRE & UK drivers chasing an FIA Junior ERC Championship prize package for the 2025 season have been revealed.

Organisers of the all-new competition have pledged to reward the top Junior category contender with support totalling almost €40,000 for a Junior ERC campaign next year.  


The Junior winner will receive their Junior ERC registration, entry fees for all six rounds, plus 12 tyres per round contested.  


Matthew Boyle, Cian Caldwell, Casey Jay Coleman, Kalum Graffin, Keelan Grogan, Joseph Kelly, Ioan Lloyd and Robert Proudlock have all registered within the Junior section of the inaugural Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup IRE & UK.



Promoted by Race & Rally, the manufacturer-supported series permits Peugeot 208 Rally4s and Opel Corsa Rally4s and is contested over eight events on asphalt and gravel in Ireland and the United Kingdom. In addition to the end-of-season Junior category incentive, a round-by-round prize fund is also up for grabs.  


The West Cork Rally in Clonakilty, Ireland, opens the Stellantis Motorsport Rally Cup IRE & UK from 15 - 17 March. The ERC-counting Rali Ceredigion from 30 August - 1 September forms part of the schedule.



Drivers planning to contest the 2024 Junior ERC Championship, which begins with V Rally Hungary from 12 - 14 April, must be younger than 27 on 1 January, compete in a Rally4 or Rally5 category car, register for the FIA ERC4 Championship, and also complete the WRC Promoter GmbH Junior Driver Agreement, which is available here: https://bit.ly/JuniorERC-Commercial-Licence-2024
