Sébastien Bedoret took the next step of his international rallying career when he made his debut in the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship on Rally Islas Canarias last week.

Belgian driver Bedoret is part of the ERC Junior Experience training programme, which equips drivers with a number of the skills required as they progress from national to international level.

Although his Rally Islas Canarias challenge ended in retirement, he had demonstrated an impressive turn of pace against far more experienced rivals before his early exit.

“I was a little bit fast on a left corner on stage four and I take the wall in front of me,” he said. “I don’t restart because we were missing a piece of the car but I was happy with my performance before my crash because we do good times in the Qualifying Stage and we were not far from the podium when we crashed, which was very good for my first time in the ERC.”

Pepe López plans to end his FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship campaign in style as be bids to secure the coveted runner-up spot behind inaugural champion Marijan Griebel.

Catie Munnings continued her scoring run in the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship on Rally di Roma Capitale last week. This is how the 19-year-old Peugeot 208 driver did it.

FIA European Rally Championship drivers have described Rally di Roma Capitale as one of the events of the season following its scheduling as the penultimate event of the current campaign last week (14-17 September).
