Important news reaches us at the last minute on Monday, March 22. Pep Bassas and Axel Coronado, two of our representatives in the European Rally Championship, have officially confirmed the program and car for the 2021 season.
The Catalan driver will continue one more year in the continental competition with Coronado, as in the 2020 campaign. Of course, they will get on a Peugeot 208 Rally4 of the Portuguese formation The Racing Factory, as they themselves have confirmed in social media.
Despite the hard work to put an intense program forward, the Spaniards will compete in the ERC3 Junior category and in the Peugeot Rallye Cup Ibérica. Therefore, a incentive is added for both international championships, with an experienced team.
The objective of Bassas and Coronado will be none other than to win in the ERC3 Junior category, where they already have one year of experience. Alejandro Cachón and Cándido Carera will be other Spanish representatives in this category.
The task will not be different in the Iberian, where rivals of the stature of Alberto Monarri, among others, have already been confirmed. The fight is guaranteed between riders with cars of such performance. In 2020, Bassas and Coronado had bad fortune in the Iberian. In the ERC, for their part, they showed their great talent in events such as Fafe (victory) or Rome and Hungary (second position).
This was the interview that Tramalón did with Bassas at the beginning of February, when things were not clear. CLICK HERE
