FIA Junior World Rally Championship driver, Marco Pollara is open to the prospect of competing in more rounds of the FIA European Rally Championship to gain more experience.
The ACI Sport Italia driver has registered for the Pirelli-supported ERC3 Junior Championship on the upcoming Rally di Roma Capitale which gets underway this week.
“Having won the Italian Junior championship in 2019, our main programme for 2020 is the Junior World Rally Championship,” said Pollara, who is co-driven by Maurizio Messina. “In fact, we are the crew of ACI Sport Italia and for this opportunity I want to thank my federation.”
The Italian scored tenth place in Rally Sweden in the JWRC class this year, the last event held before the worldwide COVID-19 lockdown. With JWRC not due to start until September, Pollara is taking every opportunity to get back behind the wheel.
“Unfortunately, after the 10th place on Rally Sweden the programme had to stop due to COVID-19. With the JWRC we should start again in September [but] we have also registered for the ERC3 Junior Championship and after Roma we will see if it will be possible to be present at other races of this beautiful championship to gain more and more experience.”
Pollara will compete in the ERC3 junior class at the Rally di Roma Capitale which gets underway this Friday. Stay tuned to TCF to keep up to date with all the latest news from the rally.
