Barrable started his motorsport car in his native Ireland in circuit racing – firstly in karts, before turning to single-seaters and then saloon car racing with a season in the Ford Fiesta Trophy.

He switched to rallying in 2010, following in the footsteps of his father Michael. A year after entering his first rally, Barrable was crowned British and Irish Citroën C2 R2 champion.

In 2011 he stepped up to S2000 machinery for a selection of Irish, British and international events in a Skoda Fabia S2000. He kept the Skoda for 2012 when he contested selected rounds of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

He made the step up to the WRC in 2013, with his biggest rally programme yet as part of the Tunnock’s World Rally Team. Now co-driven full time by Stuart Loudon, Barrable began his season in a Ford Fiesta S2000 but swapped to an R5 version as soon as it was homologated.
