Julian Wagner had not one but three reasons to celebrate at the finish of Rallye Waldviertel on Saturday evening.

The one-time FIA ERC Junior Under 27 contender clinched the Austrian 2WD, Junior and Opel ADAM Cup crowns alongside Anne Katherina Stein, who co-drove Catie Munnings during ERC 2017.

He said: “Indescribable awesome. Thanks to our entire team for the perfect work over the whole season. Thank you, of course, to my sponsors, supporters and the incredibly many fans who cheered.”

Wagner is pictured during August’s Barum Czech Rally Zlín where he finished fourth in ERC Junior Under 27 after losing out to older brother Simon on the last podium spot in a final-stage decider.

Filip Mareš has earned the support of one of Czech Republic’s best ever rally drivers following his impressive maiden season in the FIA European Rally Championship.

Romain Dumas is swapping the stages of the FIA European Rally Championship for the 6.120-kilometre Circuito da Guia, venue of this week’s FIA GT World Cup.

Dávid Botka continued his strong end-of-season run with fifth place on Rallye Waldviertel in Austria last weekend.

Castrol Ford Team Turkey’s run of success in the FIA European Rally Championship is set to continue in 2018 when the Istanbul squad embarks on its third successive ERC campaign.

Raimund Baumschlager, who guided Marijan Griebel to the inaugural FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship crown this season, has extended his record-breaking tally of Austrian rally titles to 14 following his success on Rallye Waldviertel today.

Aleks Zawada’s dramatic spin and win on Barum Czech Rally Zlín is the FIA European Rally Championship’s nomination for the FIA Action of the Year competition.
