O`Mahony, Higgins head to Germany.

British Rally Championship regulars Brian O'Mahony and John Higgins will contest round ten of the World Rally Championship this weekend when they compete on Rallye Deutschland.

It will be the third time that County Cork driver O'Mahony and County Mayo co-driver Higgins have taken part in a WRC round when they get behind the wheel of their OM Concrete Products and MIS-backed Super 1600 Renault Clio across the German asphalt.

The pair, who have previously contested Rally Finland and their home event Rally Ireland last year, finishing both events, are aiming for a third finish on the Trier-based round as they look to gain more experience at the top level.

“We wanted to do a round of the WRC that was also a round of the Junior WRC (JWRC) with some equal competition,” 23-year-old O'Mahony said. “Germany was the only one that fitted into the schedule.

“We just want to get a result and some more practice in, see how we can do against the JWRC crews. We've got the fourth round of the BRC the following week in Ulster so we'll be minding the car for that but we hope to be competitive.

“I've no idea what the German roads will be like but the stages differ from day to day so I expect it to be an education.”

The crew will start at number 77 on the event, which begins with a ceremonial start in Trier city centre on Thursday evening.
