Munnings to make UK gravel debut
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.
