Vaidotas Zala


Date of birth : 28/08/1987

Having excelled at national level, Lithuanian Žala – who started his career in his homeland in a BMW in 2011 – is embarking on his first international campaign in 2019 after impressing since he stepped up to R5 machinery last season. Prior to his FIA European Rally Championship debut on Rally Liepāja, Žala had finished first (three times) or second (two times) on the five events he’d tackled in the ŠKODA Fabia R5 he shares with Latvian co-driver Andris Mālnieks. With few common words between the two languages, English pacenotes are being used to guide Žala through the stages of the ERC.
