Rome is where the heart is for ERC driver von Thurn und Taxis

Rally Di Roma Capitale




Albert von Thurn und Taxis has the honour of competing in his adoptive Rome when the FIA European Rally Championship fires up again next month.




Although he flies the German flag on his Baumschlager Rallye & Racing ŠKODA Fabia R5, von Thurn und Taxis has been based in Rome for several years and is a fan of the city’s ERC round.



“It was a very nice rally last year, really beautiful stages through a special part of the country and I’m very much looking forward to it,” said von Thurn und Taxis, who scored his first ERC points of the season on the Cyprus Rally earlier this month.



“After last year’s [retirement in Rome] I’m really looking forward to going back and revisiting the stages, hoping there will be a bit of overlap between last year’s stages and this year. The rally is also close to home: I have been living in Rome for more than 10 years now so it’s emotionally nice as well.”



Von Thurn und Taxis is set to conduct a test on asphalt in Austria ahead of Rally di Roma Capitale taking place from 20-22 July.
