Habaj targets 2019 ERC return
Łukasz Habaj has targeted a return to the FIA European Rally Championship in the ŠKODA Fabia R5 he used on the closing two rounds of the 2018 season.
Habaj switched to the Sports Racing Technologies-run Czech machine from his Ford Fiesta R5 ahead of September’s PZM Rally Poland, where he finished sixth overall. And things got even better on Rally Liepāja earlier this month when Habaj placed one position higher.
“The target is to carry on in this car and do another full season,” said the former Polish champion in Liepāja. “I just need to keep working hard, search for some money and come back next year. I was sixth in Poland and fifth [in Latvia] so [there’s] much improvement compared to previous events for my third rally in this car. It’s challenging and demanding in terms of the set-up and the driving style is much different to the Fiesta I was using for three years. But I liked it a lot, I adapt and I think it can only get better.”
