Sylvain Michel made an impressive start to life in the FIA European Rally Championship, claiming second place in ERC Junior Under 28.

Stepping up to the ERC after winning the French Tarmac championship, Michel scored a handful of category stage wins on Rally Islas Canarias in the ŠKODA Fabia R5 he shares with co-driver Jérôme Degout.

“We had a good start to the rally with the right sensations,” Michel said. “We worked on the set-up on Friday to stop the front tyres being destroyed and for me to be less aggressive. But I’m very happy, for us and all the team. It’s a good weekend for us now and for the future.”
