MACIEJ WODA, FIA JUNIOR WRC CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER
"The 2021 line-up of drivers is going to provide even more excitement to our championship which is an incredible way to celebrate our 20th year. We have championship contenders from last year going up against championship contenders from years gone by and other well-known junior championships. Normally it’s pretty clear who our strongest contenders are when going into the first round of the championship but this year it’s not the case. For this year’s crews, it has been especially difficult to pull together the support to enter the championship, they have all worked incredibly hard to get to this point and I want to take this opportunity to recognise their effort. It’s a very special privilege to be organising the FIA Junior WRC Championship in its 20th anniversary year, we have some special celebrations planned for later in the year and I cannot wait to share more details about them. For now, let’s look forward to Croatia Rally and a very competitive Junior WRC field!”
