Polish champion Grzegorz Grzyb continued his strong run of form in the FIA European Rally Championship when he placed fourth on Rally Rzeszow.

Grzyb, with new co-driver Bogusław Browiński alongside, scored his second ERC podium on his previous appearance on the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally in early June.

Although a missed out on a top-three on home soil, the RUFA Sport driver was nevertheless satisfied with his efforts on his local event.
