Having inherited his love of rallying from his father he reckons it’s in his blood.

The service administrator by day added: “I grew up in a rallying culture. What attracted me to it is the adrenaline rush and the competitive nature of the sport.

“I’m really looking forward to rallying on home soil this weekend.

“I don’t have a particular competitor that I’m looking forward to going up against – pretty much them all.”

This year will be Jonny’s first season in a Citroen DS3 R5.

Being a Belfast boy we caught up with Jonny, 26, last night after the opening ceremony of the Discover Northern Ireland Circuit Of Ireland Rally at Belfast’s City Hall to find out a wee bit more about him:
