Final Junior WRC positions up for grabs at Wales Rally GB


As the 2016 Junior WRC season comes to its conclusion, the final championship positions are up for grabs at the 2016 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB.

Italy’s Simone Tempestini is looking to add to his 2016 Junior WRC crown, the WRC3 Championship on the muddy, gravel stages that Wales has to offer.

Tempestini will not be competing at the WRC3 season finale at Rally Australia, but will be looking to score as many points as possible to claim the 2016 WRC3 Championship.

The Italian is looking forward to the 2017 WRC2 season, where he’ll be competing in six rallies, behind the wheel of a Citroën DS 3 R5.

Second-placed Norwegian, Ole Christian Veiby has elected not to compete in Flintshire in the Junior WRC category.

This has opened the door for Slovenia’s Martin Koči and Vincent Dubert, who are fourth and fifth in the Championship Standings to overtake third-placed Terry Folb.

France’s Folb, who is absent from this weekend in Wales, could be overtaken by either the Slovenian or his fellow Frenchman Dubert on Sunday.

Action will commence at the 2016 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB on the opening stage, Myherin 1 at 08:20am UK time on Friday 28 October 2016.

The Checkered Flag will be bringing you extensive pre and post-event coverage, as well as all four days of the 2016 Wales Rally GB from the 27-30 October 2016.
