Pirelli celebrates multiple ERC title success
Pirelli captured a clean-sweep of FIA European Rally Championship titles as the 2017 season reached its climax on Rally Liepāja yesterday.
Completing a triumphant day, Pirelli drivers locked out the overall podium on the mainly gravel event, which took place amid challenging and changeable weather conditions.
Pirelli rally activity manager Terenzio Testoni said: “This latest result brings our achievements in 2017 to a brilliant conclusion. And it’s a result that is significant for many reasons. The European championship is the key international series for privateer drivers. There’s an extremely varied calendar in terms of conditions, weather and terrain – which makes it extremely demanding and important when it comes to demonstrating the capabilities of our products: P Zero for asphalt, Scorpion for gravel and Cinturato for rain.
“The European championship has also emerged as the principal arena for up-and-coming stars of the future: an integral part of Pirelli’s sporting philosophy. Special congratulations to Kajetan Kajetanowicz, who becomes the first driver to win the European Rally Championship three consecutive times.”
