New ERC-based Fiesta Rally3 Trophy a great platform for young talents, says Woda

M-Sport Poland’s all-new Fiesta Rally3 Trophy, which will run on five FIA European Rally Championship events in 2024, is the perfect platform for young talents to showcase their ability in four-wheel-drive cars before they climb up the ranks.

That’s the view of Maciej Woda, the company’s Board Member who also performs a key role in the ongoing success of the FIA Junior WRC Championship.  

He said: “The Fiesta Rally3 Trophy is a totally new one-make series that I hope will help reward and encourage the next generation of drivers that are destined for the top of our sport. One-make series were once the core of M-Sport Poland’s business and I remember the thrill and excitement of seeing so many talented drivers from a variety of backgrounds. It became apparent to us that with the popularity of the Fiesta Rally3, there needed to be a supported trophy-style competition to help highlight who we should be supporting in the near future.

“We are seeing some incredible results from the Fiesta Rally3 Evo at the moment, I am sure the entrants for next year’s Fiesta Rally3 Trophy will keep on adding to that list.”  

M-Sport Poland has partnered with Pirelli and Gulf Race Fuels for the inaugural Fiesta Rally3 Trophy season. It gets under way on the gravel-based Rally Hungary from 12 - 14 April followed by Rally Estonia (gravel, 5 - 7 July), Rally di Roma Capitale (asphalt, 26 - 28 July), Barum Czech Rally Zlín (asphalt, 16 - 18 August) and Poland’s Rally Silesia (asphalt, 11 - 13 October).  

The eventual Fiesta Rally3 Trophy winner will receive a fully funded drive package for the 2024 Central European Rally, round 12 of the 2024 FIA World Rally Championship, which takes place from 31 October - 1 November.
