Strong ERC Junior U27 form and happy memories boost Kristensson
Tom Kristensson starts Rally Liepāja boosted by his maiden FIA ERC Junior Under 27 Championship victory in Poland last month and fully aware he has what it takes to be successful in Latvia following his class-winning effort in 2017.
Swede Kristensson made his European championship debut on Rally Liepāja last October (pictured) having secured the ADAC Opel Rallye Cup in Germany, the prize for which was a season of ERC Junior U27 action in an Opel ADAM R2 supported by ADAC and Opel.
“We will enjoy our last rally of the season together with Opel Motorsport and our amazing guys from the ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team very much,” said Kristensson,” who is co-driven by fellow Swede Henrik Appelskog. “Winning Rally Poland as well as remembering our victory in the RC4 category at Liepāja last year give Henrik and myself an extra motivation. I feel we are capable of doing a good result again as we gained so much more experience in our ADAM R2 since then. But it’s going to be hard as always. The gravel stages in Latvia are so fast and challenging, every mistake can end your rally in a second.”
