Karel Kupec hit back from his car-wrecking roll on the Azores Airlines Rallye last month to claim his maiden podium in the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship.

The Czech’s Peugeot 208 R2 was badly damaged on the mid-Atlantic season opener and was only just repaired in time to enable him to start Rally Islas Canarias.

“It was a great race and a great day,” said Kupec, who is co-driven by fellow Czech Ondřej Krajča. “I was very satisfied for my team. They do a lot of work after the Azores to repair my car after I crashed. They made great work and it’s unbelievable to be on the podium in our second race.”

He continued: “It was my first rally on Tarmac for the season but I can’t compare it to anything I have done before. There were a lot of people and the stages were perfect.”

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.
