ERC helped me learn, says champion co-driver Whittock
Ross Whittock has credited the FIA European Rally Championship for equipping him with the knowledge needed to win a major international title.
Whittock co-drove fellow Briton Chris Ingram to the 2019 ERC crown following Rally Hungary’s dramatic three-way championsip decider.
“I’ve only been co-driving for five years and to achieve [the title] in five years is just incredible really,” said Whittock. “I started from the bottom in the UK and just worked my way up and luckily [I got] the opportunity with Chris two and a half years ago to start in the ERC with relatively low experience. I’ve learned all my experience of international rallying in the ERC.”
