Munnings on top in ERC Ladies’ Trophy
Catie Munnings will top the ERC Ladies’ Trophy when battle resumes on Rally Islas Canarias next month.
Munnings heads Tamara Molinaro under a new scoring system for 2018 introduced by FIA European Rally Championship promoter Eurosport Events, which is committed to encouraging the participation of women in motorsport and has revamped the ERC Ladies’ Trophy accordingly.
Rather than recognise the achievements of women when competing against other women drivers, to promote gender equality, drivers will score points based on where they appear in the final four- or two-wheel-drive order.
Munnings was ninth of the 2WD finishers and scores 50 points. Molinaro, P14 in 4WD, scores 37 points. Emma Falcón failed to finish.
All rounds of the ERC are included in the ERC Ladies’ Trophy with all classes (ERC1, ERC2 and ERC3) eligible. Drivers count their best four scores.
