With the 2020 British Rally Championship cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, William Creighton will enter the FIA European Rally Championship season-opener at Rally di Roma Capitale later this month.

Creighton, who was one of the favourites to take the British Junior title this season before the cancellation due to coronavirus, will compete in the ERC3 Junior class and he will be joined by his Irish co-driver Liam Regan in a Ford Fiesta R2T19.

The former karting star has only done one ERC round to date when he entered the 2016 Circuit of Ireland Rally in a Ford Fiesta prepared by David Greer Motorsport.

“At the start of the year our plan was 100 per cent the Junior BRC It was a good start but then everything stopped due to COVID-19, unfortunately. But we’ve had a good break and now we’re busting to get back at it. Rome is an opportunity and an adventure. We’ve entered the ERC Junior Championship and the ERC is obviously up there with the world championship, but it’s hard to know what to expect until I see the entry list.” Creighton said.

He will be using this event to build up his international rally experience following his Junior BRC class win at the first event of the 2020 BRC season.

He continued: “I suppose being from Ireland means driving well on Tarmac is no problem, but Rome will be quite different I’m sure to what we have over here,” Creighton explained. “We were always in the 208 [on asphalt] and we’ve only done a little bit of mileage in the Fiesta on Tarmac so it will take a bit of time to get bedded in. This is definitely going to be a new experience for us.”

Creighton will be joined by Pep Bassas from Spain, Amaury Molle from Belgium, Nikolai Landa from Austria and Dennis Rädström from Sweden in the ERC3 Junior class with more entries set to be announced in the coming days.
