William Creighton wins dramatic Junior WRC title in Greece


William Creighton from Co Down along with co-driver Liam Regan took home a fifth place finish at the 305.81km Acropolis Rally Greece, which was enough to ensure the championship win by eight points ahead of Diego Dominguez. 

Radiator damage saw his aspirations unravel before service on Friday – which saw Creighton and co-driver Liam Regan push their Ford Fiesta for three kilometres in a bid to fix their vechile.

Unfortunately their repairs were unsuccessful and the Irish crew was forced to retire on Friday, offering France’s Laurent Pellier and Paraguay’s Diego Dominguez the chance to win the title.

However, Creighton’s return to action on Saturday, saw him gain more points for setting fastest times despite a puncture, and Pellier’s retirement with a gearbox issues allowed him back into the title hunt. Creighton then knew finishing the rally would secure him the title. 

Creighton has led this year’s Junior WRC since the very beginning after an epic 0.6-second victory over Laurent Pellier in Sweden, claiming 34 stage wins across the 2023 championship. 

A massive congratulations to both William and Liam on their win and we wish you continued success from all at 2 and 4 Wheel Motorsport.
