Toni Kelly, Rally Driver
Toni Kelly is preparing to take on the world's fastest drivers in Rally
Ireland at the end of January 2009 as the only female entrant.
The 20-year-old from
Letterkenny in Donegal took up rallying three years
ago and has been setting records ever since.
Toni began racing quad bikes when she was only six and began competing
at 10, where she was coming in the top three in most of her races. She
began rallying properly in 2006 at the age of 17 when she got her rally
licence and became the youngest Irish competitor to get an international
rally licence. In her first rally she came seventh. In 2007 Toni took
part in Rally Ireland but was unlucky not to finish the event. This year
she is the only female entrant and it is not something that fazes her.
She has been competing now for three years but feels now she has earned
the respect of her fellow male drivers.
In 2008 Toni came 11th in the Circuit of Ireland Rally and finished 2nd
in her class in what is one of Ireland's most prestigious rallies. Like
any sport there are plenty of sacrifices to be made but this is
something that she has come to terms with.
Rally Ireland 2009 begins on the 29 January until the 1 February and
will travel through seven counties in the north and south of Ireland,
including Cavan, Leitrim, Fermanagh, Tyrone, Sligo, Donegal and
