By royal command: Stars line up for ERC The Stage online talk show
Rallying royalty will join ERC The Stage tonight when Germany’s Albert von Thurn und Taxis appears on the online talk show from the FIA European Rally Championship.
The 12th Prince of Thurn and Taxis has been an ERC regular since 2017 and will continue his transition from GT racing to rallying in 2020.
Joining him in the virtual studio is Austrian Niki Mayr-Melnhof, another ex-GT driver continuing his ERC adventure this season, having won his national title in 2018. Mayr-Melnhof is due to start his campaign on the all-asphalt Rally di Roma Capitale, which is scheduled to take place from 24-26 July.
And there will be a third guest joining ERC The Stage all the way from South America, the reigning ERC2 champion Juan Carlos Alonso. Prior to lockdown, the Argentine was aiming to step up to Rally2 level for 2020 and will be using his appearance on ERC The Stage to update fans on how his plans stand.
Rachele Somaschini will also be appearing as the ERC Newcomer with the Italian preparing to reveal an exciting tweak to her maiden FIA European Rally Championship campaign. Somaschini will also be promoting #CorrerePerUnRespiro, which aims to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.
Presented by ERC Radio reporters Julian Porter and Chris Rawes, episode five of ERC The Stage will also include a recap of the stories that have made the headlines on FIAERC.com recently.
Available on the ERC’s official Facebook page and YouTube channel, ERC The Stage will be streamed at 18h30 CET today (Wednesday).
Guests on ERC The Stage so far have included 2019 European champions Chris Ingram and Ross Whittock, Craig Breen and Alexey Lukyanuk and Erik Cais and Efrén Llarena.
