Kristóf Klausz is confident his Rally Rzeszow crash won’t hold him back in the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship.

The Hungarian crashed out on the opening stage of his ERC return. While his Peugeot 208 R2 suffered extensive damage, Klausz said the engine and gearbox won’t need replacing ahead of Barum Czech Rally Zlín later this month.

“The chassis is a problem but the engine and gearbox are okay for the next rally,” said Klausz. “It was a right corner and the speed was too high. We could not turn into a junction and we hit a field and rolled two or three times. We tried to do a good result and my speed before the crash was good but maybe it was too much.”
