Sébastien Bedoret will look to the next round of the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship for a lucky break.

The Belgian registered his second consecutive non-finish when he dropped out of Rally Rzeszow earlier this month with radiator damage.

“I go out a little bit from the road and hit the radiator,” Bedoret explained. “I lose all the water so we stopped to save the engine. It was disappointing and a difficult rally with the problems with the brakes yesterday and the stages being cancelled. Hopefully it will be better next time.”

Barum Czech Rally Zlín hosts the fourth event of the ERC Junior season from 25-27 August. Bedoret is also part of the ERC Junior Experience training scheme.

Mārtiņš Sesks has regained first place in the FIA European Rally Championship’s Under 27 category on Azores Airlines Rallye, following adjustments to stage times awarded in SS8 and SS9 related to incidents causing delays for multiple drivers.

Tamara Molinaro continues to head the ERC Ladies’ Trophy category on the Azores Airlines Rallye, while Emma Falcón retired with back pain before midday service.

Sergei Remennik has resumed his lead of Azores Airlines Rallye’s FIA European Rally Championship ERC2 category, following an unfortunate retirement for nearest challenger Zelindo Melegari with clutch failure.

Diogo Gago took on the might of ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team’s pair of FIA ERC Junior Under 27 factory drivers on the Azores Airlines Rallye’s Friday stages and succeeded aboard his PEUGEOT 208 R2, moving from third to first over the course of a dramatic multi-way battle.

Chris Ingram and Martin Koči traded places throughout Friday’s Azores Airlines Rallye stages in a tight battle for FIA ERC Junior Under 28 victory.

The Azores Airlines Rallye once again showed why it is such a formidable opening round of the FIA European Rally Championship, but as others hit trouble, Russian Performance Motorsport’s Alexey Lukyanuk held steady out front.
