Munnings reflects on awesome ERC weekend
Catie Munnings celebrated her third consecutive finish in the FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship by describing her Rally di Roma Capitale weekend as “awesome”.
Although the event got off to a challenging start when her pacenotes were stolen from a team-mate’s recce car – prompting co-driver Anne Katharina Stein to work through the night to ready a new set – the Briton said the experience she gained on the all-asphalt event was crucial to her ongoing development.
“It’s been an awesome weekend because I’ve learned so much,” said the Saintéloc Junior Team driver. “I’m still learning on Tarmac and there’s still lots to improve. But we are making great progress and I think we’re now 1.3s per kilometre off the top ERC Junior Under 27 drivers, which is great for me after not many rallies.
“It started off badly with the pacenotes being stolen and that meant Anna was up all night making new ones and I really take my hat off to her. But we just keep improving and work through the situations to improve for the next time.”
