A highly-experienced co-driver, Borja Rozada has been competing in rallies for more than two decades since his 17th birthday. He has started over 250 events, although the majority of his rallying has been done on home ground in Spain.
Rozada has sat next to a variety of drivers over the years, including Mexican driver Benito Guerra for a handful of FIA World Rally Championship outings. Their best result was in 2014 when they finished sixth in Mexico with a Ford Fiesta RS World Rally Car.
As well as co-driving for Guerra, Rozada has spent recent years alongside fellow Spaniard Pepe López. The pair enjoyed a successful partnership, mainly in R5 and Rally2 machinery, and were crowned Spanish champions in 2019 and 2020.
Rozada’s big-time opportunity came at the end of 2020 when Carlos del Barrio - long-term co-driver to Hyundai Motorsport driver Dani Sordo - announced he was moving on to pastures new with Paraguayan youngster Fabrizio Zaldivar.
Shortly afterwards, Sordo revealed Rozada would be the one to fill the right-hand seat of his i20 following his final event with del Barrio at Rallye Monte-Carlo.
