If at first you don’t succeed… ERC Junior U28 champion Gryazin plans France return mission

Sun, 11/04/2018 - 06:00

Nikolay Gryazin won’t be put off from rallying in France after his outing on Critérium des Cévennes ended in final-stage disappointment last weekend.

Gryazin, fresh from winning the FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship on Rally Liepāja in Latvia in mid-October, was in second place on the French Tarmac event in Montpellier when a rare mistake forced his early exit.

However, Gryazin is set to return to French asphalt for Rallye du Var from 23-25 November with fellow Russian Yaroslav Fedorov co-driving his Sports Racing Technologies-run ŠKODA Fabia R5.

Why Acropolis was the ERC turning point for Nobre

Sat, 11/03/2018 - 06:00

Ever-present FIA European Rally Championship competitor Paulo Nobre has picked the EKO Acropolis Rally as his best moment of 2018.

Nobre scored ERC points for the first time on the Lamia-based event in June, which coincided with an upturn in pace from the Motorsport Italia-run Brazilian.

“All rallies were new for me and every rally had it’s own characteristic and you can like or don’t like,” said Nobre. “I try to take the glass full always and try to enjoy the best of every one. But if I would take one moment I would say in Greece where we were top 10 and where we start to drive a little bit better. We changed a little bit our speed and our confidence and we could make some points in the next rally in Cyprus if we didn’t have the flat tyre.”

Nobre and co-driver Gabriel Morales placed ninth on the EKO Acropolis Rally.

Win double exceeded Kristensson’s ERC expectations

Fri, 11/02/2018 - 06:00

Tom Kristensson underlined his potential – and determination – by completing his debut season in the FIA European Rally Championship with back-to-back wins.

Kristensson stepped up to the Pirelli-supported ERC Junior Under 27 Championship in 2018, his prize for winning the ADAC Opel Rallye Cup in Germany the previous season.

After crashing out of the season-opening Azores Airlines Rallye, the talented Swede regained his composure and showed progression on each event, ending the year with class triumphs in Poland and Latvia alongside co-driver Henrik Appelskog.

“I’m having troubles finding the words for this end of season, it’s not what I expected,” said the Swede, who partnered ERC Junior U27 champion Mārtiņš’ Sesks at the ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team. “It feels really good to end the season with this double victory, thank you to my fantastic team.”

ERC Junior Yates to try co-driving for size

Thu, 11/01/2018 - 06:00

Rhys Yates, a podium finisher in the FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship in 2018, will try co-driving for size this weekend.

Yates is switching from driving his ŠKODA Fabia R5 to co-driving his brother James on Saturday’s Neil Howard Stages, which takes place at the Oulton Park racing circuit in northwest England.

“It’s been a fantastic year in the ŠKODA so I’m going to relax a little and let ‘JJ’ have a go at Oulton Park,” Yates explained. “He’s pretty quick too so I’ll be in the co-driver’s seat to keep an eye on him.”

Yates followed a long list of drivers by using the FIA European Rally Championship to build experience of international competition after stepping up from national level.

With support from Brettex, Yates made four ERC appearances during his maiden European campaign, finishing third in the highly competitive ERC Junior U28 class for young stars in R5 cars on the Azores Airlines Rallye and scoring points again on Rally di Roma Capitale and Rally Liepāja to underline his potential.
