Kajetan Kajetanowicz says his Rally Islas Canarias podium has put him on track to fight for a record-breaking third consecutive FIA European Rally Championship title.

The LOTOS Rally Team ace finished second to Alexey Lukyanuk on the island event and now lies third in the standings, 28 behind early leader Bruno Magalhães, ahead of the next event in Greece, the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally from 2-4 June.

“I was very pleased with my driving [on Rally Islas Canarias],” said Kajetanowicz, from Poland. “For sure there is still room for improvement but we are on the right track in our fight for another championship title.”

Round two of the 2018 FIA European Rally Championship is officially underway following yesterday’s launch in Las Palmas.

Russian Performance Motorsport will lead the FIA European Rally Championship for Teams by two points when battle resumes on Rally Islas Canarias next month.

Alexey Lukyanuk and Albert von Thurn und Taxis are set for an early Czech adventure when they contest Rallye Šumava Klatovy this weekend (20-21 April).

Laurent Pellier warmed up for his next FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship appearance with a fine second place on Rallye Sierra Morena in Spain yesterday (14 April).

Hubert Ptaszek, the driver known as Birdman based on a rough English translation of his surname, achieved new heights on his FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship debut last month.
