Molinaro hoping for home ERC success
Tamara Molinaro will fly the flag for her native Italy when the 2017 FIA European Rally Championship resumes on Rally di Roma Capitale from 14-17 September.
Red Bull-backed Molinaro holds a comfortable advantage in the ERC Ladies’ Trophy and plans to use the fact she’s competing on home soil to give her an extra lift.
“I am very much looking forward to be able to race in my home country together with my co-driver Giovanni Bernacchini and meet many friends and fans,” said the Opel Rallye Junior Team driver.
“It’s always nice to be in a place, where your mother language is spoken. After studying several onboard videos of the rally I hope that the special stages will suit me better than those at Poland and Czech Republic did.
“As always we intend to be clever, drive both controlled and quick and get our ADAM R2 to the finish line. Of course it would be wonderful if we could clinch the title in the ERC Ladies’ Trophy for the Opel Rallye Junior Team.”
