WRC-2 driver Adrian Fourmaux says that he is “excited” to get started on the stages of the Rally di Roma Capitale next week.
The 25-year old will be making his debut in the FIA European Rally Championship behind the wheel of the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Ford Fiesta MKII, co-driven by Renaud Jamoul.
Speaking ahead of the event, Fourmaux is aiming for the podium places; “This is a great opportunity for me to prove our pace, I don’t know these stages, but I’ve always liked the challenge of experiencing a new rally for the first time.
“We showed good pace on asphalt at the start of the year and I think we are quite confident on this surface. The podium is our target, and I would be really happy if we were able to fight for the victory too.”
Fourmaux has a good track record on tarmac having taken two podiums in Rallye Monte Carlo in the WRC-2 class in 2019 and 2020 respectively. He currently lies second in the WRC2 standings for the COVID-19 affected WRC season. He will be eligible to score points in the ERC1 junior class in next week’s rally.
Rally di Roma Capitale gets underway on Friday and runs until Sunday. Who will come out on top? Stay tuned to find out.
