Marijan Griebel’s achievements in winning the inaugural FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship have been recognised by ŠKODA Motorsport.

Griebel used one of the Czech firm’s Fabia R5s to clinch the coveted title in 2017 during what ŠKODA Motorsport has described as its most successful season when it celebrated five international titles and 13 national titles.

Nikolay Gryazin, Jan Kopecký and Bruno Magalhães also enjoyed ERC success in 2017 driving Fabia R5s with all three winning a round, while Magalhães challenged for the overall title up until the final round, eventually settling for the runner-up spot behind Kajetan Kajetanowicz.

Efrén LLarena’s preparations for FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship success have progressed with confirmation that Mavista Sport will run his Rally Team Spain entry during the upcoming season.

The start of the 2018 FIA European Rally Championship season has moved a step closer with the publishing of the Azores Airlines Rallye key timings.

Frank Tore Larsen hopes his Azores Airlines Rallye redemption mission will be the catalyst to an FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship attack in 2018.

FIA European Rally Championship event winner Nikolay Gryazin is in for a great time when he makes his debut on the Sigdalsrally in Norway this weekend (20-21 January).

The FIA held its largest and most successful rally sporting and safety seminar to date with 173 participants from 38 countries attending the event in Dublin, Ireland, last Saturday.

Drivers planning to contest the FIA European Rally Championship in 2018 can register to do so following the opening of registrations at the FIA.
