ERC Drivers Praise Rally Di Roma Capital

ERC Drivers Praise Rally Di Roma Capital


FIA European Rally Championship drivers have described Rally di Roma Capitale as one of the events of the season following its scheduling as the penultimate event of the current campaign last week (14-17 September). The all-Tarmac rally, which marked Italy’s return to the ERC for the first time since 2013, began in spectacular fashion with a driving tour through Rome and culminated in a dramatic final-stage showdown with Bryan Bouffier taking victory over Kajetan Kajetanowicz by three-tenths of a second.

After bringing parts of central Rome to a standstill on Friday evening with an 18-kilometre driving tour of the historic city under police escort, which began at the Bocca della Verità (the Mouth of Truth) and passed by the Colosseum, a floodlit superspecial stage around the Colosseo Quadrato in Rome’s EUR district in front of 18,000 fans proved another highlight. The ceremonial finish in Ostia, a popular seaside destination on the banks of the Tyrrhenian Sea a short distance from Rome, brought the event to a spectacular close.

Bouffier Wins, Kajetanowicz Takes Erc Title Lead At Home

Bouffier Wins, Kajetanowicz Takes Erc Title Lead At Home


Kajetan Kajetanowicz’s bid to become the first driver to win the FIA European Rally Championship three years running is alive after he moved into the title lead with second place on his home event, Rally Rzeszow, as Bryan Bouffier made it five winners from five ERC rounds with his record-extending fifth victory on the high-speed asphalt counter in southeast Poland.

Marijan Griebel won ERC Junior Under 28 for a second time in a fine third overall, one place ahead of reigning Polish champion Grzegorz Grzyb. With his closest rival Pepe López non-scoring, Griebel increases his advantage in his quest for the coveted title and a prize drive in a World Rally Car on a European round of the world championship in 2018.

Jari Huttunen boosted his chances of winning the 100,000 euros career progression fund on offer to the ERC Junior Under 27 champion with his first category win. Tibor Érdi Jr looked set to win ERC2 after completing the final stage with his lead intact. However, engine failure forced him to retire moments later, leaving Zelindo Melegari to claim top spot. Huttunen also bagged the ERC3 honours, while Tamara Molinaro won the ERC Ladies’ Trophy. Castrol Ford Team Turkey continues to lead the FIA European Rally Championship for Teams.

Bouffier Heads Erc Rally Rzeszow Victory Battle


FIA European Rally Championship 2017: Round 5 of 8 Rally Rzeszow: Leg one report, 4 August

*Lukyanuk crashes out of the lead on return from injury
*Østberg holds top spot before powersteering failure strikes
*Gryazin excels to lead ERC Junior Under 28 in third overall
*First five covered by 35 seconds following dramatic day in Poland

Bryan Bouffier is on course for a fifth Rally Rzeszow victory following a dramatic start to Poland’s round of the FIA European Rally Championship today. But with 35 seconds covering the top five drivers with six stages remaining, the battle for first place is finely balanced.

Frenchman Bouffier heads home hero and reigning European champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz by 15.6s with ERC Junior Under 28 pacesetter Nikolay Gryazin a mere 3.0s further back followed closely by fellow ERC Junior U28 contenders Marijan Griebel and Sylvain Michel. And in a day of high drama, Alexey Lukyanuk, who is continuing his comeback from serious injury, crashed out of the lead on stage two, while a powersteering failure hit world championship star Mads Østberg’s hopes of success on his return to ERC action and promoted Bouffier into the lead after four stages. The Norwegian is sixth overnight, 2.0s behind French Tarmac champion Michel and 38.0s down on Bouffier but determined to fight back.
