A remarkable 72 hours for ERC2’s Sergei Remennik!

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 19:48

When Sergei Remennik irreparably damaged his car during testing for Rally di Roma Capitale, his team managed a remarkable feat to have him ready for this weekend’s FIA European Rally Championship round.

Russian Performance Motorsport pilot Remennik had wrecked the front left corner of his Mistubishi Lancer Evolution X only three days before Rally di Roma Capitale was set to kick-off.

For many drivers this would mean an early trip home. However, Remennik and co-driver Mark Rozin were aided by a mammoth effort by their team. A new car was sourced, travelling round the clock from approximately 2,500 kilometres away and changing it over from gravel to tarmac specification in time for Thursday’s action.

“My team just managed it. In the next two hours [after my crash] a new car from Latvia [was brought],” explained Remennik.

"They went about 30 hours without sleep to deliver a new car. In the next 16 hours [after delivery] my team replaced all the parts for tarmac spec. This car just finished Rally Estonia and immediately after was delivered here."

Explaining how his accident occurred, Remennik had carried 10km/h extra speed while also braking slightly deeper into a tight corner, leading to his accident.

“As far as I remember, the speed was OK but the corner was too tight!” he remarked jokingly.

Nordgren plays it safe in Rally di Roma Capitale qualifying

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 19:10

ŠKODA Motorsport protégé Juuso Nordgren took a safety-first approach to Rally di Roma Capitale’s Qualifying Stage, keen to bounce back from a challenging second FIA European Rally Championship outing.

Nordgren has included ERC in his rally programme for 2018 to give him more experience in a variety of challenging conditions, from the rough gravel of EKO Acropolis Rally to Rally di Roma Capitale’s asphalt surface.

Though top finishes have yet to come, Nordgren has already set three fastest stage times in his first pair of ERC rallies. He retired from both EKO Acropolis Rally and Cyprus Rally from excessive tyre wear and accident damage respectively, so clean stages are his highest priority this weekend.

That safety-first approach meant he was only P10 in Thursday’s Qualifying Stage, albeit with potential to go much faster as the weekend progresses.

"[It was] quite difficult. [There was] surprisingly much gravel on the road, so [I was] very cautious in those places,” said Nordgren after his qualifying run.

Nordgren’s Qualifying Stage result means he will be the 10th driver to select a start order position tomorrow, which takes place at 1500 CEST in Rome’s iconic Castel Sant’Angelo.

New ERC Junior U27s make their mark on Rally di Roma Capitale qualifying

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 18:02

The FIA European Rally Championship’s newest pair of ERC Junior Under 27 competitors, Sindre Furuseth and Sebastian Johansson, have made an immediate impact in their first competitive ERC kilometres.

Furuseth was immediately quick out of the gate aboard his Pirelli-shod Opel ADAM R5, going only 0.1 seconds slower than pacesetter Mārtiņš Sesks – a factory ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team driver – to set the third fastest time in Thursday’s Qualifying Stage.

“I had one mistake on each free practice but now I finally had a clean run, so I'm really happy,” said Furuseth after his qualifying run.

Though drivers before him had struggled with gravel littering the asphalt stage surface, Furuseth himself was untroubled.

“It was a bit cleaner than I expected actually. It makes it difficult when all the gravel is dragged out, but we had a clean line.”

Fellow ERC Junior U27 rookie Sebastian Johansson was not so fortunate, losing time with an overshoot to put him 22.8s off Furuseth’s third fastest time in his JR Motorsport PEUGEOT 208 R2. Despite his off, he remained in good spirits, his sights firmly set on having an enjoyable ERC debut.

ERC Junior U28 Gryazin tops Rally di Roma Capitale qualifying by 0.1s

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 17:18

FIA European Rally Championship Junior Under 28 contender Nikolay Gryazin marked his ERC return with the quickest time through Rally di Roma Capitale’s Qualifying Stage, edging out Alexey Lukyanuk by 0.1 seconds.

Having been used for two free practice runs prior to qualifying, gravel had been swept onto the all-tarmac Qualifying Stage, making conditions tricky for everyone.

Sports Racing Technologies driver Gryazin had already started his Rally di Roma Capitale preparations in style, by beating several ERC Junior U28 rivals to second place in Rally Internazionale del Casentino aboard his ŠKODA Fabia R5 last weekend.

Gryazin continued his good form into the Qualifying Stage, which dictates tomorrow’s start selection order, by edging out

Third fastest, 1.5s off Gryazin’s lightning pace was ERC Junior U28 championship leader Fabian Kreim, the ŠKODA AUTO Deutschland prodigy edging out Rufa Sport’s Grzegorz Grzyb by a mere 0.05s.

Further ERC Junior U28 front-runners usurped their more experienced rivals, as Fredrik Åhlin and Chris Ingram went fifth and sixth fastest aboard their respective CA1 Sport and Toksport WRT Fabias, again separated by only 0.05s.

Overall championship leader Bruno Magalhães was seventh fastest in his SEAJETS-backed Fabia, remarking on how an increasing amount of gravel on the roads had changed his approach to his Qualifying Stage attempt.

“I think was good,” said Magalhães of his time at stage end. “The road is dirty in some points. I made a FP in the beginning so I felt a big difference in the road, but the feeling with the car is very good to be honest.”

Local legend Paolo Andreucci was the fastest Italian in eighth place, 2.75s behind Gryazin’s winning time, ahead of ERC Junior U28 competitor Rhys Yates and ŠKODA young talent Juuso Nordgren in ninth and tenth.

Rally Technology driver Łukasz Habaj could only manage the 20th fastest time after a mistake caused a puncture and cracked rim, while Palmeirinha Rally’s Paulo Nobre did not set a time at all, having suffered two broken wheels in free practice beforehand.

Returning Ingram expects “big fight” with Gryazin in ERC Junior U28

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 15:00

Chris Ingram is expecting a “big fight” with Nikolay Gryazin when he returns to FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship action on Rally di Roma Capitale from today (Thursday).

Ingram was forced to withdraw in the opening stages of Rally Islas Canarias in early May through illness and has only tackled one practice event since.

Not only is the Briton fit again, he’s also ready to take on Russian Gryazin, the class winner in Gran Canaria and armed with considerable more experience in R5 machinery owing to the fact he is able to tackle an expanded schedule of events each season.

“I’m disappointed to have missed Greece and Cyprus [due to illness] but I need to remember this year is my learning year in a four-wheel-drive R5 car,” said the 11 Degrees-backed Toksport WRT driver. “If you compare what I’ve done to the guys I’m competing against it’s mad how many more events and kilometres they’ve done.

“Winning the ERC Junior U28 Championship is the goal and I expect a big fight with Gryazin. If I can get a bit more seat time in the next few months it will help us match him as he’s in the car every other week.

“We did Rally Rally Internazionale del Casentino as a warm-up and I was very rusty for the first three quarters of the day but on the last couple of stages I found that good rhythm again despite taking no risks which was a good sign.

“The stages are mega in Italy, and I think the ERC Junior U28 pace will be right at the front along with [Alexey] Lukyanuk and a bunch of local drivers. A podium in U28 given it’s my first rally back since illness would be a sensible goal for Rally di Roma Capitale.”

Kristensson back on ERC Junior duty a winner

Thu, 07/19/2018 - 09:00

Tom Kristensson starts Rally di Roma Capitale tomorrow on a high following a recent class-winning performance in his native Sweden.

Kristensson, last year’s ADAC Opel Rallye Cup winner, claimed division honours on Rally Askersund. And while the event ran on gravel, the result has boosted his confidence ahead of the resumption of FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship action in Italy.

“I can’t wait to tackle Rally di Roma Capitale in my ADAM R2,” said Kristensson, part of the ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team. “The roads look really thrilling and could suit my way of driving better than those at Gran Canaria. I expect the stages in Italy to be less ‘racing style’, but a little tougher and trickier.

“I feel well-prepared for the rally as I had some important time in the car doing the Rally Askersund in the beginning of June, so my co-driver Henrik and I as well as the whole ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team are burning for our first podium in ERC Junior U27. I feel it’s time for it now. And apart from that I am looking forward to visit the wonderful city of Rome and hopefully see many of those impressive historic places.”

Doubling up: ACCR Czech Team expands in ERC

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 21:00

Dominik Brož can count on some familiar support when he continues his FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship bid on Rally di Roma Capitale from tomorrow (Thursday).

Brož has been the ACCR Czech Team’s lone representative in the FIA European Rally Championship this season but that will change when Jan Černý returns to action in the ERC Junior Under 28 category this week.

But as well as counting on Černý’s experience and advice, Brož heads to Italy on the back of a strong showing on his home event, Rally Bohemia earlier this month.

“After Rally Islas Canarias there was a big break, so we have used Rally Bohemia to be back in the racing rhythm,” said Brož, whose PEUGEOT 208 R2 is equipped with Pirelli tyres. “The event is based in Mladá Boleslav and had 160 kilometres of stages. Rom is a very long and difficult rally, some of the stages are quite similar to the Czech Republic, so we will try to keep our speed from Rally Bohemia and make a good result.”

Focused Yates expects tough ERC Junior fight

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 18:00

ERC Junior Rhys Yates is keeping his feet firmly on the ground as he revs up for his Rally di Roma Capitale debut this week.

The ex-motocross rider has been on impressive form this season with an FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship podium in the Azores and a victory on a national event in Belgium among the highlights.

But he admits it will be tough going to continue that run against tough competition from some of Europe’s elite.

“I must be realistic as some of the best in Europe are competing alongside us but at the same time, I want to be in the mix for a good result,” said the Briton. “I’m keeping my focus purely on the ERC Junior Under 28 fight and I need to find that feeling we had in Wervik [when we won].”

Yates prepared for his Roma debut with an outing on Rally Internazionale del Casentino earlier this month when co-driver Elliott Edmondson was back in action after illness.

“I was pleased with how we got on, but it helped me realise that there is still more to come,” said Yates. “I had to adapt the pacenotes during the event and a puncture meant we dropped a few places, but it was good to back into the groove. It was hard not to push for overall results but it’s not always about being flat out one hundred per cent of the time.”

Familiarity cheers ERC Junior Wagner

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 15:00

Simon Wagner can’t wait for this week’s Rally di Roma Capitale – because he reckons the stages are similar to those in Czech Republic and his native Austria where he does the bulk of his competing.

Wagner was fighting for an FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship podium in the Azores before finishing third in class in Gran Canaria. He believes he can perform even better on the all-asphalt event in Italy, which he’ll contest in a Saintéloc Junior Team PEUGEOT 208 R2 alongside co-driver Gerald Winter.

“Our feelings are quite mixed after the first two rounds with two very untypical rallies for us, fighting for the podium on the Azores but having to retire and then finishing third in Canarias where we were too slow to fight for the win,” said the Pirelli-equipped driver. “The stages in Roma should be a lot more similar to what I’m used to from the last few years competing in Austria and Czech Republic. I am really hoping for a better result this time and will try to give my absolute best just like my co-driver Gerry and of course everyone at Saintéloc.”

Åhlin will call on previous Tarmac pace for ERC return

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 12:00

Fredrik Åhlin starts his first event on Tarmac for 10 months when he resumes his FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship campaign on Rally di Roma Capitale.

But while he’s renowned for his gravel prowess, Åhlin has also been upping his pace on Tarmac as he proved when the British championship that he was contesting in 2017 visited Belgium.

“I know my pace on gravel is up there, particularly on the quicker events like I’m used to in Sweden,” said the CA1 Sport driver. “Tarmac has been quite strong for me since I switched to the ŠKODA and we proved that last year in Belgium where we were competitive against the likes of [Thierry] Neuville and [Kevin] Abbring so I don’t see why we can’t be competitive in Rome and get a good result to build on for the rest of the season.

“The last time I was on Tarmac was on the Isle of Man [last September] so there’s going to be a lot of work on the test to set the car up and prepare it for the rally. It’s a long time since I’ve done these wide, flowing type of roads so it’s going to be a bit of an adjustment but I think we have a good chance to be up there fighting for the podium places. From what I understand the roads are medium to high grip which is something new for me so could be a learning curve.”

Since placing second in ERC Junior Under 28 on the Azores Airlines Rallye in March, Åhlin won the South Swedish Rally in his homeland and currently tops his national championship standings.

Furuseth to take on “the best” in ERC Junior Under 27

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 09:00

Sindre Furuseth will take on “the best” young drivers in Europe when he completes the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship season, starting with this week’s Rally di Roma Capitale.

The 24-year-old from Norway becomes driver 14 to join the Pirelli supported line-up in an Opel ADAM R2, but he’s determined that he won’t be making up the numbers alongside co-driver Jim Hjerpe.

Furuseth, who lists Norwegian former world champion Petter Solberg as his inspiration, said: “We are in the championship to get noticed. Therefore, our goal is to win. I know it will be difficult when we are only doing four rallies, but our rally coach agrees that we are now ready to compete against other juniors of the same age and in the same situation as us. When I say ready, I mean ready to fight for wins. The best juniors in Europe are in this and to get noticed as a fast driver you need to beat other fast drivers. Also, we can run our own car in ERC Junior U27 with our own team, which I very much believe in.”

As well as experience of competing in his native Norway, Furuseth has rallied in Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Rally di Roma Capitale will provide his first taste of Italian stages, however. “I really look forward to measuring myself against the best on Rally di Roma Capitale and getting stuck into what looks like a very challenging rally,” he said.

“My long-term goal is to be a world champion, but before that it is to be a factory driver. To get there it is difficult to have a detailed plan because I work to find the budget by myself. Because of the limited budget we don’t have a lot of options and we need to take every door that opens on the way and see where it leads us. ERC Junior is the right place to be now.”

Starting out in karting, Furuseth began rallying at youth level in Norway. Since 2009, he’s been building his experience of stage events with the aim of competing further afield and learning to drive on Tarmac. “I have done motorsport all my life,” he said. “It started with karting with a little help from my dad and mum, and they could also help a bit during the first couple of years in rally when we drove in the youth class in Norway. From there we have built a budget step by step and gained experience. In the last couple of years, we have done more international rallies and more Tarmac events. After lots of hard work, we have now found the budget to join the ERC Junior Under 27 Championship.”

ERC Junior has been helping young drivers in R2 cars on Pirelli tyres to learn, shine and climb since 2014 with graduates including Fabio Andolfi, Emil Bergkvist, Jan Černý, Marijan Griebel, Nikolay Gryazin, Jari Huttunen, Chris Ingram, Stéphane Lefebvre, Łukasz Pieniazek and Julius Tannert.

Could post-Cyprus debrief get Lukyanuk back on ERC title track?

Wed, 07/18/2018 - 06:00

Alexey Lukyanuk starts Rally di Roma Capitale playing catch-up in his bid to win the FIA European Rally Championship – but under “no stress” following a post-Cyprus Rally debrief.

Lukyanuk lost his ERC title advantage to Bruno Magalhães at the end of the Larnaca-based event last month after he failed to finish for a second rally running.

But the Russian Performance Motorsport star said he’s keeping calm with the support of his team and co-driver Alexey Arnautov.

“We did some debrief after Cyprus and we decided to continue in the way we did,” he said. “In Cyprus it was really bad luck with this stone and we thought a lot [about] how we could prevent things like that in the future. I hope our decisions and my preparations, especially my mental training, can help a little bit but sometimes you can do nothing about it.

“In general we will still try not to win each stage in case some drivers will be really fast. We will focus on our goal of scoring points but we will not be slow, we will try to be on the pace but without some extra risks, we will try to play a game and not push like hell.”

Lukyanuk completed a short “shakedown” in Italy on Monday ahead of what could be a crucial rally in terms of his title aspirations.

“Any rally is a really difficult challenge and you never know what kind of trouble you are going to have,” said Lukyanuk, who celebrated 100 rally starts in Cyprus. “We are more or less relaxed and calm with no big stress. We had quite bad luck in two rallies before but we hope it will change and we will have a trouble-free rally this time.”

The 37-year-old was leading Rally di Roma Capitale last season when a crash put him out nearing the end of the first leg. But he’s not dwelling on past disappointments and insists there’s no unfinished business.

“I never thought it that way, we lost some experience and did not check the roads and the notes for the second day. But what happened has happened and we leave it behind and look forward.”

Rally di Roma Capitale takes place from 20-22 July and marks the start of the second half of the 2018 ERC season.

Vita banks on home experience and new team in ERC Junior

Tue, 07/17/2018 - 18:00

Mattia Vita will use his previous Rally di Roma Capitale knowledge in his bid for home FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship glory this week.

The ex-Formula 3 racer and relative rallying rookie is one of only a handful of Pirelli-equipped ERC Junior U27 drivers with Rally di Roma Capitale experience.

And after a frustrating start to his campaign, Vita is hoping for a change of fortune on the all-asphalt event, which he’ll tackle with a new team, Tagai Racing Techology.

“I can’t wait to be back racing in my homeland, driving through the streets of Rome in a racing car is one of the best sensations you can have,” said Vita. “The rally itself is very difficult. The temperature will be very hot inside the car so you have to remain very focused as you can easily make a mistake. The pacenotes also have to be very efficient as the roads can change from very wide and fast to very narrow and tricky in a matter of metres. Unluckily in Canarias we had no opportunity to do more than one stage so my target is to improve, but rallying is about tackling these difficulties.”

Of his new team, the PEUGEOT 208 R2 driver said: “It’s a great opportunity for me because TRT has lots of experience, so I’ll try and learn as much as possible from the engineers.”

Galatariotis goes for more ERC gold

Tue, 07/17/2018 - 12:00

Simos Galatariotis will continue his FIA European Rally Championship adventure with a rare appearance in a non-Greek-speaking country.

The winner of last month’s ERC-counting Cyprus Rally is contesting Rally di Roma Capitale for what will be his third European championship appearance in succession and his first in Italy.

And while the Cypriot national champion’s Rally di Roma Capitale experience his zero and Tarmac-driving knowledge limited, Galatariotis is on form having began June with a fifth place finish on the EKO Acropolis Rally prior to his last-gasp Cyprus Rally triumph.

Revealed: Basso’s ERC colours

Tue, 07/17/2018 - 06:00

This is a graphic of how Giandomenico Basso’s Metiorsport.it ŠKODA Fabia R5 will look when the double FIA European champion returns to the ERC on Rally di Roma Capitale this week.

Basso, ERC champion in 2006 and 2009 and Rally di Roma Capitale podium finisher in 2015 and 2016, will link up with Swiss co-driver Moira Lucca for the first time when the all-asphalt event takes place from 20-22 July.

“I am very happy with this opportunity and to come back to compete in a race that is valid for both the European and the Italian championship,” said Basso. “It will be a very challenging race: the stages are very beautiful and difficult, it will take a lot of concentration. They are all very fast and competitive. Then surely a great thing is the charm of running in the capital, parading through the monuments of Rome. We would like to show to the fantastic spectators our best.”

Hokkanen recruits new co-driver for latest ERC Tarmac test

Mon, 07/16/2018 - 18:00

Miika Hokkanen will get a new co-driver for his second Tarmac rally when he joins forces with Reeta Hämäläinen for the third event of the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship season in Rome this week.

Hokkanen, the reigning Finnish R2 champion, has recruited Hämäläinen in place of Jukka Pasenius for Rally di Roma Capitale when the new partnership will compete in a Saintéloc Junior Team PEUGEOT 208 R2 on Pirelli tyres.

“I’m really looking forward to this rally after what has felt like a long break and time since Canarias,” said Hokkanen. “It will be very interesting to drive on different Tarmac roads to those we tried in Canarias and further build on my experience. We will try and secure a better result than we did last time, but I think the hot weather will be a big challenge for everybody.

“I also have a new co-driver for the event, Reeta Hämäläinen, so there will be plenty of new things for me on this rally.”

ERC ace Černý returns to a happy hunting ground for ACCR

Mon, 07/16/2018 - 12:00

Jan Černý will make his long awaited return to the FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship on an event where he bagged his maiden win in the category in 2017.

Černý took the ERC Junior U28 honours on Rally di Roma Capitale last September and will make his first start of the European season when the all-asphalt event takes place from 20-22 July.

“I am really happy to be back in the European Rally Championship,” said Černý, whose ACCR Czech Team Ford Fiesta is co-driven by Petr Černohorský. “We wanted to start on Rally Islas Canarias, but technical problems at the very last moment forced us to withdraw.

“Since that time we did a few rounds in the Czech championship and our performance was good. It was a pity about losing third place overall on Rally Bohemia on the very last stage due to a broken driveshaft [but] I am really sure it will be nice fight with other drivers in Rome.”

Last year’s Rally di Roma Capitale was also notable for the ACCR Czech Team after Filip Mareš made it a win double with victory in ERC Junior Under 27.
