Cork's Lucca Allen represents Ireland at FIA Motorsport Games
Cork driver Lucca Allen represented Ireland at the FIA Motorsport Games in Rome this weekend.
Competing in the Formula 4 cup, the 17 year old recovered from a frustrating qualifying session to finish 9th in the world.
After a promising performance in testing, Allen wasn't able to complete a flying lap in qualifying, with the session red flagged 5 times.
This left the Shanagarry native back in 15th place.
However Allen performed brilliantly in the race, battling his way up to 7th, before a small incident near the end of the race pushed him wide, finishing 9th overall.
