New car, same goal: Érdi targets ERC2 title success

New car, same goal: Érdi targets ERC2 title success

03/05/2017 09:00

Tibor Érdi Jr is stepping his bid for FIA European Rally Championship glory by purchasing a brand new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

Hungarian Érdi Jr has been an ERC regular since 2013 and wants this season to be his best yet.

“After a lot of mechanical problems with the car last year we decided to discard our old Evo X,” Érdi Jr explained. “It had a lack of power and was so heavy that we cannot really fight for the championship title. These issues led us to change to a better car but in the same category. So right now our only acceptable goal is to become ERC2 champions.”

György Papp will co-drive Érdi, who has included next month’s SEAJETS Acropolis Rally on his schedule for the upcoming season.
