Bostanci’s ERC participation is changing up a gear for 2017 with graduation to the top-level ERC1 category and a season-long campaign with Castrol Ford Team Turkey, the outfit run by his father and former Turkish rally champion Serdar. Bostanci Jr made the move to the ERC for 2016 after winning the FIA European Rally Trophy and also claiming back-to-back Turkish crowns. While those successes came in R5 and S2000 versions of the Ford Fiesta, he used the R2T model for his maiden ERC campaign last year, with the aim of learning the rallies before a step up to the headlining class and an outright title assault. He scored ERC3 victories in Greece and Cyprus in 2016, helping Onur Vatansever to the ERC3 co-drivers’ title and Castrol Ford Team Turkey to class team honours.
