Mun­nings to make UK gravel de­but

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Catie Mun­nings will make her first com­pet­i­tive ap­pear­ance on gravel this week­end on the Red Dragon Rally ahead of her next Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship out­ing in Latvia in Septem­ber.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing sev­enth on her Ju­nior ERC de­but on the Ypres Rally, Mun­nings will take on the JERC again in east­ern Europe.

“It’s just to get some ex­pe­ri­ence be­fore Latvia,” ex­plained Mun­nings. “I’ve done a bit at the Welsh For­est Ex­pe­ri­ence [used to be Hig­gins Rally School] with Ross Leach which was good.”

Mun­nings is part of the ERC Ju­nior Ex­pe­ri­ence, which in­cludes driv­ing and pacenote train­ing, en­gi­neer­ing work­shops as well as vis­its from WRC driv­ers like Hay­den Pad­don.

“When I was in Es­to­nia with the Ju­nior ex­pe­ri­ence we did some work with Urmo Aava [for­mer WRC driver],” she added. “It was good to work with him on a stage and he gave us a lec­ture about driv­ing on gravel.”

Af­ter the Red Dragon Mun­nings will head to Barum for the next round of the ERC with the ERC Ex­pe­ri­ence, be­fore test­ing in France.
