ERC Junior U28 title showdown special: Kreim plays down chances

Fabian Kreim admits he faces the hardest task to finish Rally Liepāja on Sunday as the winner of the FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship.

The ŠKODA AUTO Deutschland driver is third in the table and in a weaker position when dropped scores are taken into consideration having scored on all five rounds so far.

“I don’t think we hold the best cards in the fight for the championship to be honest,” said the double German champion. “Now we are down to third position and have a lot less experience on gravel than Nikolay [Gryazin] and Chris [Ingram]. But we promise to fight to the very end. Hopefully we can find a good rhythm and then we will try to learn as much as we can on gravel.”

If Kreim wins the ERC Junior Under 28 title he can choose a one-off drive in a 2016-specification World Rally Car on a European round of the world championship or a grant of 100,000 euros as part of an overall ERC campaign.
