Nikolay Gryazin secured second place in the FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship standings behind champion Marijan Griebel with his maiden category win on his ‘home’ event, Rally Liepāja today.

José Suárez started leg two trailing his Peugeot Rally Academy team-mate Pepe López by 1.0s but moved ahead when his fellow Spaniard crashed out on this morning’s opening test. Suárez secured third in the final rankings.

José Suárez completed his maiden season of FIA European Rally Championship action by finishing second among the ERC Junior U28 contingent on Rally Liepāja to secure third in the final class reckoning.

Krisóf Klausz’s strong end to the 2017 FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship continued when he finished sixth in class on Rally Liepāja.

Aleks Zawada says there were “a lot of positives” after his bid for the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship – and the 100,000 euros prize fund – ultimately ended in disappointment in Latvia earlier this month.

Kalle Rovanperä says Nikolay Gryazin is the ultimate rival after the talented young guns locked horns on the closing round of the 2017 FIA European Rally Championship recently.

Jari Huttunen has spoken of his disappointment after losing out on the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 title to Opel team-mate Chris Ingram in a final-round decider in Latvia earlier this month.
