Efren Llarena

Date of birth : 26/05/1995

Llarena’s ERC Junior Under 27 campaign backed by Spanish federation RFEDA is his prize for winning the Beca R2 title in his homeland last season. Co-driven by compatriot Sara Fernández, he began his European bid with second place on his Azores Airlines Rallye debut but crashed heavily battling for the victory on Rally Islas Canarias. Llarena hit back with third in class on Rally di Roma Capitale and made his debut on Barum Czech Rally Zlín on a high after taking a class win on a regional event in his homeland. Electrical problems ruled out a podium finish in Zlín but he made a class-winning PZM Rally Poland debut. The Spaniard, who hails from the north of the country, builds and maintains rally cars when he’s not driving them.
