ERC stalwart Tlusťák triumphs at home

Antonín Tlusťák, who made four FIA European Rally Championship appearances last season, completed a busy and successful 2017 by winning the Traiva Rallycup Kopřivnice VIII in his native Czech Republic in late December – using two cars.

Part of the Rallydrive series – an amateur competition for drivers only – Traiva Rallycup Kopřivnice VIII took place in snow, which prompted Tlusťák to switch between a ŠKODA Fabia R5 and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX.

He took the ŠKODA to victory and placed P11 in the Mitsubishi, becoming Rallydrive champion in the former.

Efrén LLarena’s preparations for FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship success have progressed with confirmation that Mavista Sport will run his Rally Team Spain entry during the upcoming season.

The start of the 2018 FIA European Rally Championship season has moved a step closer with the publishing of the Azores Airlines Rallye key timings.

Frank Tore Larsen hopes his Azores Airlines Rallye redemption mission will be the catalyst to an FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship attack in 2018.

FIA European Rally Championship event winner Nikolay Gryazin is in for a great time when he makes his debut on the Sigdalsrally in Norway this weekend (20-21 January).

The FIA held its largest and most successful rally sporting and safety seminar to date with 173 participants from 38 countries attending the event in Dublin, Ireland, last Saturday.

Drivers planning to contest the FIA European Rally Championship in 2018 can register to do so following the opening of registrations at the FIA.
