Why Schwedt will be counting on his karting skills in ERC3 Junior

Roman Schwedt plans to use his skills from karting when he contests Rally Islas Canarias for the first time from tomorrow (Thursday).

The FIA ERC3 Junior Championship contender raced karts before taking up rallying and hopes knowledge gained will help him on the asphalt event.

“I want to push on some stages and have good times, but I must find a good rhythm on the stages and with the car, then I will be happy,” said the Team ROMO-run German teenager. “I did karting in Germany and Italy earlier in my career and I want to use some of my experiences from this, like taking a clean line in every corner, being fast but also being careful with the car in the line. I hope I can do this.”

Schwedt’s preparations for his Rally Islas Canarias debut weren’t entirely without issue after his Pirelli-equipped Peugeot 208 R2 suffered a front-left suspension problem during testing in Artenara on Monday.
