Tibor Erdi Jr


Date of birth : 07/10/1982

Érdi Jr claimed the ERC’s showroom category laurels in a thrilling final-round decider on Rally Liepāja last October when he pipped Zelindo Melegari to top honours. The Hungarian set out to become back-to-back champion and targeted a five-event campaign in 2018. Although his title defence got off to a frustrating start when he retired from the Azores Airlines Rallye with broken suspension, he hit back with a dominant class victory on Rally Islas Canarias. But it was close after a throttle problem twice left him stranded on the final run. He hung on to win but the fault ruled out a clean sweep of stage bests. A second consecutive victory on the EKO Acropolis Rally put him firmly back in the title hunt, while a third on Rally di Roma Capitale completed an impressive hat-trick. Class victory on Barum Czech Rally Zlín helped him to a second consecutive title. Érdi Jr is now contemplating a step up to R5 machinery for 2019.
