FIA European Rally Championship promoter Eurosport Events is delighted to announce the creation of the ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory for the 2021 season.
Recognising the achievements of registered ERC drivers aged 28 and under at the start of 2021 competing in the championship in Rally2 cars on MICHELIN tyres, the ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory also offers a number of incentives, including:
*Special tyre prices for MICHELIN Talent Factory members on first six events of the 2021 ERC season
*ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory member achievements highlighted in final results of the first six events
*Tyre guidance from a MICHELIN tyre engineer on all ERC rounds in 2021
*Footage made available to ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory members during each rally
*VIP visit to MICHELIN’s Clermont-Ferrand headquarters in France for the three best performing ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory members following the first six events of the 2021 ERC season
Jean-Baptiste Ley, the ERC Co-ordinator, said: “Restructuring the ERC Junior categories for 2021 gave us an opportunity to develop a new way to recognise and incentivise drivers 28 and under at the start of the season competing in Rally2 cars. Opening the ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory is a great away to do just that and we can’t wait to begin welcoming the first intake.”
Julien Vial, MICHELIN Motorsport – Customer Racing Director Europe, said:“We are very pleased to join forces with Eurosport Events in support of this excellent initiative. There are a number of promising young drivers who fit the eligibility criteria and we hope the benefits of ERC-MICHELIN Talent Factory membership will assist them as they challenge for top outright results in the ERC.”
