ERC2: Remennik caps season with Liepāja win
Sergei Remennik scored his first win in the FIA European Rally Championship’s ERC2 category this year on Rally Liepāja, the season finale.
With recently crowned ERC2 champion* Tibor Érdi Jr stepping up to a top-spec ŠKODA Fabia R5 in a non-points scoring entry this weekend, Russian Performance Motorsport driver Remennik was able to push on for victory, though his day was not without its dramas.
A power steering failure on stage nine caused a late scare but was remedied at midday service, allowing him to cap his second position in the ERC2 championship* with a win.
Érdi finished P11 overall on his first appearance in an R5 car in the ERC, battling back from a puncture on Saturday afternoon with an impressive error-free drive.
