Grigor Grigorov’s dream of competing in the FIA European Rally Championship is about to come true when Rally Islas Canarias begins tomorrow.

Bulgarian promise Grigorov has worked tirelessly to put together a campaign in the Pirelli-supported ERC3 Junior category.

Having tested on Gran Canaria on Monday, Grigorov will join his class rivals for Free Practice and the Qualifying Stage on Thursday morning ahead of the rally proper getting underway with the first of 16 stages on Friday.

“A dream is coming true for me because this is my first ERC participation and I am really happy for that,” said Grigorov. “The car felt fine in testing and I felt comfortable in it. We had some small issue when one of the connectors of the fuel pump lost electricity or something and we stopped in the stage but we fixed it and the car was working fine.”
