Łukasz Habaj will contest the remaining rounds of this season’s FIA European Rally Championship, completing his six-event schedule as planned.

Starting with his home event, next month’s Rally Rzeszow, the Pole will also tackle the ERC counters in Czech Republic, Italy and Latvia.

He will pilot an all-new Ford Fiesta R5 – production number 225 – and will be hoping for a change of fortune after bad luck blighted his early-season forays in Azores and Gran Canaria.

Daniel Dymurskik, who co-drove Wojciech Chuchała to ERC2 glory in 2016, will continue to partner Habaj at Rallytechnology.

Pepe López plans to end his FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship campaign in style as be bids to secure the coveted runner-up spot behind inaugural champion Marijan Griebel.
