Suzuki stars face off for ERC Open battle

Suzuki Motor Ibérica team-mates Joan Vinyes and Alberto Monarri go toe-to-toe for the ERC Open title at RallyRACC Catalunya - Catalunya this week (20 - 22 October).

Twelve points separate the Swift R4LLY S pair heading into this eighth and final round, which takes place on asphalt roads near to the Costa Daurada coastline, south of Barcelona. 

For Andorran star Vinyes, the championship is his to lose. As points leader, simply finishing the rally will be enough for him to be crowned ERC Open champion. That could be easier said than done, however - especially as this week’s rally is the longest of the season. 

Monarri is reliant on his colleague failing to finish. And, if both crews retire, the title goes to Vinyes.  

After Thursday evening’s start ceremony in Salou, the action begins on Friday morning. Competitors face 14 stages covering 235.52km before Saturday afternoon’s finish.
