Herczig ERC podium not just down to 0.3s but very hard work
Norbert Herczig’s first FIA European Rally Championship since the Cyprus Rally in June 2018 owed plenty to the hard work of he and co-driver Ramón Ferencz.
The Škoda Rally Team Hungaria duo beat Efrén Llarena and Sara Fernández to third place on Rally di Roma Capitale last Sunday by a mere 0.3s.
Afterwards, the four-time national champion from Hungary said: “This is an incredible result. We’ve waited a long time and worked very hard. The car was perfect all weekend but in the last stage we damaged the front-right rim and could have had a puncture.”
Herczig and Ferencz have now claimed three ERC podiums.
