- 14 May 2004

Rathfarnham has many sporting heros such as Padraig Harrington, Paul McGinley and Damien Duff, however there may be another. Last week at Oscherslaben in Germany, Michael Devaney from Rathfarnham, became the youngest Irish man ever to win a Formula 3 race.

Michael has been racing for years and has been crowned 'Motorsport Ireland Racing Driver of the year' twice so far. Things are looking optimistic for the young 19 year old, the German Formula 3 series has produced many F1 drivers in the past, such as Michael Schumacher, Jos Verstappen, Jarno Trulli and Nick Heidfeld.

Michael led most of the 18 lap race and took the win by 4.373 seconds from Germanys Thomas Holzer and Timo Lienemann. Michael's next big race is on the 22/23 May in Assen, Holland, we wish him the best of luck.
