Max Rendina’s FIA European Rally Championship challenge is underway. After business commitments prevented him from taking part on the season-opening Azores Airlines Rallye earlier this month, the Italian is due to complete a two-day test today (14 April) in preparation for the upcoming Rally Islas Canarias.

Rendina and co-driver Emanuele Inglesi were in action on roads in Marsciano, Umbria, in the Motorsport Italia-run ŠKODA Fabia R5 they will use on several rounds of this season’s ERC, including their home event, September’s Rally di Roma Capitale.

“We are preparing very carefully for this event and we will be giving our best on the roads of Gran Canaria,” said Rendina.
