ERC life begins at 40 for Poloński

ERC life begins at 40 for Poloński

15/04/2017 12:00

Dariusz Poloński will get his big international break in this season’s FIA European Rally Championship – aged 40.

Despite beating Łukasz Habaj and double ERC champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz to the Peugeot Cup title in Poland in 2005, Poloński has only managed a handful of appearances outside his homeland. Until now.

Starting from next month’s Rally Islas Canarias, Poloński will compete in a Peugeot 208 R2 for Rallytechnology when he will be a contender for ERC3 honours.

Poloński has numerous Polish class titles to his name, including Class 4 last season. He will prepare for his ERC adventure by contesting the Świdnicki Rally from 21-23 April.

Chris Ingram can’t wait for next week’s Rally Islas Canarias – even though the FIA European Rally Championship counter will be all-new to him.

Bruno Magalhães is under no pressure to make it two wins from two in the FIA European Rally Championship after he secured the funding to contest next week’s Rally Islas Canarias.

The popularity of the all-action FIA European Rally Championship has been underlined with Rally Islas Canarias organisers attracting a 125-car entry for the second event of the ERC season.

Several champions will be in action when Rally Islas Canarias hosts round two of the 2017 FIA European Rally Championship next month.

The itinerary for round two of the FIA European Rally Championship, Rally Islas Canarias, has been published.

Kajetan Kajetanowicz’s preparations for round two of the FIA European Rally Championship didn’t go entirely to plan when it snowed during testing in his native Poland earlier this week.
