Lucca has been rising through the ranks of motor racing and has made it clear that he is one to watch on the track.
“Whoop whoop hip hip hooray!!” Rachel began on Instagram alongside videos and pictures of her son.
“Huge congratulations to @motorsportirl motorsportirl licenced driver @luccaallen1 on being crowned the European Ultimate Cup Championship winner at Circuit Paul Ricard in France!! @lmp3cup #flyingtheflagforireland”.
Lucca, himself, was delighted by the news and shared that his racing career was far from over.

Proud mother Rachel shared the news on social media writing: “Yippee!! Huge congratulations to Lucca @luccaallen1 who this weekend clinched the driver title in the 2022 European Ultimate Cup Endurance Series.
“What an exciting 8 months racing for him across Spain, France, Italy and Germany in his Le Mans Prototype 3 racing car. Yesterday a win in Magny-Cours International Circuit, France and still with one round to go was enough to take the pressure off and the championship title is in the bag!
“A huge thank you to all his sponsors for making this possible. Well done Lucca….. looking forward to seeing you soon. Next stop Le Mans 24h!!!!”
