Rally di Roma Capitale ERC2: Erdi Jr all set for third consecutive win in Rome

Rally di Roma Capitale ERC2: Erdi Jr all set for third consecutive win in Rome

22.07.2018: Tibor Érdi Jr is on course for a third consecutive victory in the FIA European Rally Championship’s ERC2 category for production cars, after chief rival Juan Carlos Alonso retired with a double puncture.

Tibor Érdi Jr is on course for a third consecutive victory in the FIA European Rally Championship’s ERC2 category for production cars, after chief rival Juan Carlos Alonso retired with a double puncture.



Reigning ERC2 champion and current title leader Érdi struggled throughout Saturday with a lack of brake pressure, making driving tricky through the rally’s tight and twisty hillside roads. This helped keep Juan Carlos Alonso within touching distance of Érdi, more than halving his 20.6s deficit after stage two by midday service.



Alonso took first place on stage five but picked up two separate punctures during stage six. With only a single spare tyre on board his RMC Motorsport Mistubishi Lancer Evolution X, Alonso had no option but to retire afterwards. Csaba Juhász is second after Leg One on his ERC series debut, inspired to participate after years of watching the championship on Eurosport.



Though he is 3m46.7s behind Érdi, his current podium position looks secure with third placed Sergei Remennik 4m41.6s further back. Remennik had gone through a mammoth effort to even participate this weekend, his team pulling off a 5,000-kilometre round-trip to Latvia in 30 hours straight to source a new car when his usual machine was damaged beyond economical repair in a testing crash on Monday.



A new car sourced and switched from gravel to asphalt specification, his Lancer struggled to cope with such a tough itinerary so soon after completing Rally Estonia. Two punctures, accident damage, fading brakes throughout Saturday, an overheating engine in the afternoon loop and no light pod for a night stage meant the usually rapid Remennik was consigned to falling well off the pace, though remaining in good spirits regardless of his troubles.





What’s next? Sunday’s closing leg, the longest of the rally at 106.15 kilometres, features seven stages starting with the 28.60-kilometre Rocca di Cave test from 10h11 local time.
