Camilli hoping to continue good run at Rally de España


Eric Camilli is hoping to continue his good run of form for M-Sport at the 2016 Rally Catalunya – Rally de España.

The second M-Sport driver previously finished ahead of his team-mate Mads Østberg in eighth on the Corsican asphalt.

Camilli has previously competed at Rally Catalunya in WRC2 last year, but failed to finish the only mixed surface rally of the season.

The Frenchman said “Corsica was a very important event for me and I believe that the combination of that and this week’s test will help us in Spain. Not only did we complete all of the stages without a mistake, but we also had some competitive split times and my pacenotes were the best that they have been all year!

“We’ve learnt a lot in a very short space of time, and we plan to continue that in Spain. I’ve only been there once before, but I really like the circuit-like tarmac stages. 

“We set some very good times on that surface last year. It will be a completely different story going head-to-head with the WRC drivers this time around, but we’ll certainly give it our best. 

“The target is to have another clean rally, but if we’re feeling comfortable, I think it’s possible to show some good speed – just like we did last weekend.”
