During the weekend, Mille Johansson drove Rally Coppa Città di Lucca outside Pisa in Italy as a warm-up for the next competition in the Junior ERC which will be decided in Rome this weekend. Together with the co-driver Johan Grönvall, they finished in third place in the Under 25 class, and a sixth place among the Rally4 cars.
– The rally was a good run-through before Rome with extreme heat and a test with our new pace note system, which we noticed needs more time to be used at the required speed. So we will continue with what we used before and practice the new one at home, as there is too much of a difference to be able to push with it yet. Which makes me hesitate too much, says Mille.
Rally di Roma Capitale is the fourth round of the Junior European Rally Championship, and the first of the year on asphalt. Mille and Johan compete in a two-wheel drive Ford Fiesta Rally4 from the IKsport team from Slovenia. The rally starts with a central stage outside the Colosseum in Rome on Friday.
