Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Lat­vian teenager Martin Sesks has se­lected the Ca­naries Rally and Rally of Rome as his two Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship prize drives.

The 19-year-old, who won two ERC Ju­nior Un­der 27 rounds on his way to this year’s ti­tle, will make his R5 de­but in a Mo­tor­sport Ital­iarun Skoda Fabia R5 next sea­son. Sesks will use what the ERC de­scribes as a‘ ca­reer­pro­gres­sion in­cen­tive’ as a spring­board for an as­sault on the Euro­pean se­ries’ next level in 2019.

He said: “I am very happy that win­ning the FIA ERC Ju­nior Un­der 27 Cham­pi­onship gives me this op­por­tu­nity and proves that hard work pays off. The prize gave me more mo­ti­va­tion to step up to an R5 car and we now have the ERC Ju­nior Un­der 28 Cham­pi­onship to show our­selves in the best way, as we did in ERC Ju­nior Un­der 27.”

Sesks is a prod­uct of the ERC train­ing pro­gramme, hav­ing grad­u­ated two years ago from the ERC Ju­nior Ex­pe­ri­ence.
