Kristof Klausz bids to step up from ERC3 Junior a winner

02.05.2019: - Hungarian plans final R2 campaign before full-time R5 graduation - Prospect of competing on Rally Hungary a big incentive for youngster

- Hungarian plans final R2 campaign before full-time R5 graduation


- Prospect of competing on Rally Hungary a big incentive for youngster


- Campaign starts on Rally Islas Canarias




Kristóf Klausz is determined to prove his talent in the FIA ERC3 Junior Championship this season – because it’s likely to be his last at R2 level.



With an R5 future already in motion, Klausz views ERC3 Junior as unfinished business and wants to make the most of his 2019 campaign alongside new co-driver Ágnes Farnadi, before he steps up full time.



“We still need to learn a lot about the R5 category and we plan to do that in the Hungarian and Mitropa championships,” said the Hungarian, 22. “But we would not like to miss the ERC either because it goes to great places with fantastic rally stages and strong competitors.”



Klausz has competed in ERC Junior on a regular basis since 2015, although he has never mounted a full championship campaign.



“It is a big challenge for myself,” said Klausz. “We have already proved our knowledge and competence in the Hungarian and Austrian championships and also in the nearby countries that we can be on the top. However, the ERC is different. It needs so much more preparation and with an R2 car I believe this is my last year to prove my competence at international level.



“We want to learn continuously but also try to win and get a good result in the races we don’t know. I expect big fights, but we have the target to build up our progression to achieve our goals.”



Klausz will begin his 2019 ERC3 Junior campaign on this week’s Rally Islas Canarias at the wheel of a Pirelli-equipped, Klaus Motorsport-run Peugeot 208 R2.



“I have not raced in the Canary Islands before but I like the fast roads and many corners,” he said. “With the hard surface we expect, tyre tactics will have a big influence on the final result. The videos of the stages uploaded by the organisers have been a great help for me and I’ve also tried to gain knowledge from the previous experience of other drivers.”



With the 2019 ERC concluding in Klausz’s native Hungary, there’s added incentive for him to achieve a strong result in ERC3 Junior. “I am really happy that the ERC championship comes to Hungary in November and I would definitely like to compete in this race. If we will have a successful year behind us in ERC3 Junior, then we might start with an R5 car. I will do my best to achieve this.”
