The FIA ERC Junior Under 28 Championship is set for a thrilling maiden season with several leading lights announcing exciting plans for 2017.

Young talents Nikolay Gryazin (pictured) and Ralfs Sirmacis will drive ŠKODA Fabia R5s for Sports Racing Technologies, while Pepe Lopez and José Suarez were announced as the Peugeot Rally Academy’s representatives in 208T16s on Monday.

A number of other young hopefuls are due to announce their ERC Junior U28 plans in the coming weeks.

The inaugural champion will receive a one-off prize drive in a 2016-specificaiton World Rally Car on a European round of the world championship next year.

Chris Ingram can’t wait for next week’s Rally Islas Canarias – even though the FIA European Rally Championship counter will be all-new to him.

Bruno Magalhães is under no pressure to make it two wins from two in the FIA European Rally Championship after he secured the funding to contest next week’s Rally Islas Canarias.

The popularity of the all-action FIA European Rally Championship has been underlined with Rally Islas Canarias organisers attracting a 125-car entry for the second event of the ERC season.

Several champions will be in action when Rally Islas Canarias hosts round two of the 2017 FIA European Rally Championship next month.

The itinerary for round two of the FIA European Rally Championship, Rally Islas Canarias, has been published.

Kajetan Kajetanowicz’s preparations for round two of the FIA European Rally Championship didn’t go entirely to plan when it snowed during testing in his native Poland earlier this week.
