Marty grew up in Draperstown, Co. Derry and started work in the family business of Directional Drilling at the age of sixteen. His first introduction into the rallying world was a 21st birthday present when his older brother, Greg, lent him his MK2 escort rally car and they went to Killarney where he went on to win the Historic Rally. Marty is a young, highly motivated, rally driver with strong ambition to reach the pinnacle of the sport. Through raw skill he has a proven record of success in international events in the UK and Europe in front, rear and four-wheel drive. As a driver he combines exceptional pace with an enviable finishing record of over 94% and a talent for the mechanical development of whatever car he drives. Significant achievements include outright wins, class wins, British Junior Rally Champion 2009 and 2011, a member of the MSA Team UK 2010 and a recipient of the “Outstanding Achievement Award 2011 for bringing a new level of professionalism to the British Rally Championship as well as a new manufacturer in the form of Citroën, not to mention giving a front wheel drive car its first outright victory in the BRC”. 2014 saw Marty taking the next step in his rallying career to compete in the WRC2 which he will continue in his 2015 season.
