Rally young gun Dylan King says he ‘couldn’t be happier’ with the year he’d had. The 18 year old is aiming for a big finale in the sixth and final round of the WA 2WD Rally Championship, the Darling 200 around Jarrahdale next Saturday.

King, who from round one emerged as one of the state’s most exciting up and coming drivers, will aim to set a blistering pace in the event. Competing with Andrew Hannigan in a Ford Escort, King has already claimed the 2012 driver’s title but a win next Saturday means his co-driver will share championship honours.

Hannigan, who has missed a couple of rallies this year, is one of five competitors vying to be named 2012 WA 2WD Champion Co-driver.

The Darling 200 also wraps up the Clubman Cup Championship and Matt Snaddon and Blake Thompson, in a Toyota Corolla, have already sealed the deal on the driver and co-driver titles.

There’ll be a fierce battle to see who claims the runner up spots with several teams, including Andy van Kann and James Marquet, in a Toyota Levin, vying for the trophies.

Meanwhile, in the 2WD Challenge, Ford Escort driver, Leo Iriks, leads after taking top spot from Sean Keating who crashed his Nissan Silvia in last month’s Safari Rally around Chidlow.

The Darling 200 is a road book rally and covers about 90 competitive kilometres. It starts at midday on Saturday from the Jarrahdale Heritage Site on Jarrahdale Road. Spectator guides will be available there.
