Erik Cais finished the Azores Rallye as the top Czech finisher in the FIA ERC3 Junior Championship.

Competing on the spectacular gravel event for the first time, the ex-downhill mountain bike racer, placed fifth in the Pirelli-supported co-driver alongside new co-driver Jindřiška Žáková.

“This rally was wild, a bit like Jurassic Park!,” said the Autoclub of the Czech Republic-backed driver, who was competing in the new Ford Fiesta R2T. “It was really difficult for me because everything was new, new car, new co-driver, new event. And with a new car and co-driver it’s not always easy to listen to the pacenotes.

“It’s my second time on gravel so far but I think we did a great job and next time will be better and better because we have more confidence in the car. The rally was a lot of fun but much more difficult than expected, even though I enjoyed it a lot.”
