30.06.2021: RALLY LIEPĀJA FIA ERC Junior Championship 2021, Round 2 of 6 FIA ERC3 Junior Championship 2021, Round 2 of 6 JULY 1-3, 2021 The 2021 FIA ERC Junior and FIA ERC3 Junior championships continue on Rally Liepāja this week.


RALLY LIEPĀJA
FIA ERC Junior Championship 2021, Round 2 of 6
FIA ERC3 Junior Championship 2021, Round 2 of 6
JULY 1-3, 2021



The 2021 FIA ERC Junior and FIA ERC3 Junior championships continue on Rally Liepāja this week.




Oscar Solberg (NOR) ERC Junior
Co-driver: Dale Furniss (GBR) Team: M-Sport Poland Car: Ford Fiesta Rally3


“I was focusing on the Norwegian championship in an old Volvo when I got the news [I would be making my debut in ERC Junior] and I don’t think it will register until I am putting on my helmet before the first stage on Rally Liepāja. This is very big for me and without this [help] from [my cousin] Oliver [Solberg] I would not be here, so I am very grateful.



I just need to find my rhythm and go with it. Hopefully I can show something good. Rally3 is a new class, it looks exciting, and although I have not driven the car yet, I was driving Group N cars when I was starting in 2016 so I have some four-wheel-drive experience.”




Ken Torn (EST) ERC Junior
Co-driver: Kauri Pannas (EST) Team: M-Sport Poland Car: Ford Fiesta Rally3


“We are going back to Rally Liepāja, which I have had some success on before. In Liepāja there are nice and fast roads, which me and Kauri really like. Luckily the break between Rally Poland and Liepāja wasn’t that long, which helps when getting back in the car. I hope all goes really well and we can enjoy every kilometre of this rally.”


 

 

Alejandro Cachón (ESP) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Alejandro López (ESP) Team: Rallye Team Spain Car: Peugeot 208 Rally4


“We had a heavy crash [on the last rally in Poland], but, fortunately, my co-driver and me are okay. To be out of the rally in the third stage was not what we had expected for our first appearance in ERC with Rallye Team Spain. We’ll learn from this to be back stronger in Latvia.”


 

Jean-Baptiste Franceschi (FRA) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Anthony Gorguilo (FRA) Team: Toksport WRT Car: Renault Clio Rally4


“I know the type of the stages because I did this rally two years ago. These are the kind of stages I really like. I am not used to this type of road because in France it is not really like this. Some sections are narrow but more sections are fast and wide and I love it.



In Poland the car was completely new and it’s always difficult when you are trying a new car. Everyone worked very hard in the week before Latvia and we had a good test day. My confidence is back behind the wheel. I am very happy with this and I can’t wait to start this rally. My goal is to give the best like always. The level is high this weekend but it’s perfect for us.”





Kaspar Kasari (EST) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Rainis Raidma (EST) Team: OT Racing Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4



“We will push hard. We will see what our expectations are, I am more comfortable and confident [in Latvia] because I have been to Latvia many times so the roads are familiar. In Latvia national rallies I have finished second and third before, so we are feeling good for Rally Liepāja.”




Nikolai Landa (AUT) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Günter Landa (AUT) Team: Drift Company Rally Team Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4



“Everything is perfect with the car after the fire in Poland. The guys did an amazing job and also M-Sport Poland helped us a lot because we could go to their facility directly on Sunday after the rally.



Thankfully it was just small damage. It looked worse at the beginning but everything is perfect and we’re going to enjoy the Latvian roads a lot.”





Martin László (HUN) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Dávid Berendi (HUN) Team: M-Sport Racing Kft Car: Peugeot 208 Rally4


“Liepāja will be a new challenge because it’s a new rally for us again. But we try to prepare as much as we can by seeing the onboards from previous years. We really like the fast stages and, after Poland, it will a step forward. We hope it will be a good weekend for us.”




Nick Loof (DEU) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Hugo Magalhães (PRT) Team: Orsák Rallysport Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4


“The car is getting better and better and the set-up is working really well for me. The team has done a very good job and I’m ready for the rally. From what I have seen of the stages it’s a really fast rally and I like that a lot. The result in Poland was really good in the end and we try to improve again.



We have the same goal as for Poland, which is to finish and learn and we’ll see at the end how the result is going. There are a lot of kilometres to come and a lot of things will be happening. I can’t wait to start.”






Norbert Maior (ROU) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Francesca Maior (ROU) Team: ToppCars Rally Team Car: Peugeot 208 Rally4



“Thanks to the people around us and Topp-Cars Rally Team, we have the chance to participate in the second round of the ERC. We are extremely happy and grateful that we can be at Rally Liepāja. We are ready for another long and difficult race where we hope to learn and grow some more.


It helps a lot that not much time has passed since the last race in Poland so, regarding our pace, we're starting from the same level and we will try to improve along the way. We learned a lot from the experience of the stages in Poland, and this gives us confidence that we will be able to be better from one stage to another.



Our main goal is to reach the end of the rally and to manage to increase the pace, even if we have to stay away from problems and mistakes.”






Amaury Molle (BEL) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Florian Barral (FRA) Team: TM Competition Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4



“We had a test on Tuesday and it was a good base for this event which is very specific. I’m really looking forward to get back into the action we find on these super-fast roads. We had to discover a new car on the last rally, that wasn’t easy for us but we got some good points for the championship and that will be the target on this event.


I want to get as much experience as possible on every gravel rally I do so definitely the target is to get as much as we can and as many points as we can for ERC3 Junior.



We tried many settings during test and did many kilometres so we are ready. We did the rally last year so we have some experience of the special stages so I hope we can do well on this rally and keep the speed on these very fast and beautiful roads.”




Joosep Ralf Nõgene (EST) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Simo Koskinen (EST) Team: CKR Estonia Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4


“We don’t have much experience on fast roads and we just want to gather kilometres. I have only done two rallies so far so Rally Liepāja will be my third event. I’m slowly getting to grips with driving in rally because I have driven with crosskarts for five years now so it’s a big switch to driving front-wheel-drive rally cars.



I would say it’s comfortable driving with pacenotes but it’s hard to prepare and write them, that’s what I’m still learning. Our goal is just to get to the finish, drive every stage and improve our overall times. Maybe to do some top 10 times would be nice but mainly we are here just to finish.”




Sami Pajari (FIN) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Enni Mälkönen (FIN) Team: Porvoon Autopalvelu Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4

“I am hoping to build on what happened in Poland and gain more experience on high-speed gravel roads. Poland was a good weekend for me. To win my first event outside of Finland was a big relief and especially as it was my first event in the ERC. This gives me huge confidence moving on to my next events. I expect the roads will be really fast in Latvia as they were also in Poland. As before the competition will be tough in Latvia, but we try to continue where we finished off.”




Daniel Polášek (CZE) ERC3 Junior
Co-driver: Kateřina Janovská (CZE) Team: Yacco ACCR Team Car: Ford Fiesta Rally4


“I am really happy I am back in the car so quickly after Rally Poland. On Rally Liepāja we want to gain some new experience and learn something new on the gravel.”
