The Dunlop Motorsport Ireland Young Racing Driver of the Year Award and the historic Sexton Trophy are awarded to the individual who has demonstrated the most potential to represent Ireland at home and internationally both on the track as well as in the public eye.
The three finalists were drawn from six candidates who were nominated during the course of the year. They were selected from a range of track racing disciplines and underwent a rigorous selection process in front of a judging panel made up from representatives of the racing community and the media.
