Commenting on the announcement of the 2022 YFCU European Rally Team, Shannen Vance, YFCU Vice President said “I am delighted to have been awarded a place on the 2022 YFCU European Rally Team - an opportunity that means even more given the travel restrictions of the past few years. It will be a great privilege to represent the YFCU alongside my fellow County Tyrone member Matthew Wilson, and I am looking forward to participating in the Rally!”
