The story so far
His WRC debut came in 1992 on his home Rallye Catalunya - Costa Brava alongside Oriol Gómez, with whom he won the Spanish asphalt title in 1994. Three years later the pair joined SEAT and helped the Spanish squad to the WRC F2 title in 1997 and 1998.
Martí joined Jesús Puras and they won the Spanish title for Citroën in 1999 and 2000 before taking the first of 32 WRC wins for the Xsara WRC at the Tour de Corse in 2001.
Martí replaced Luis Moya as co-driver for Carlos Sainz in 2003 and helped Citroën to manufacturers’ world titles in 2003 and 2004, claiming wins in Turkey and Argentina.
After Sainz’s retirement, Martí joined forces with Spanish youngster Dani Sordo and they won the Junior WRC together in 2005. They made a successful transition to Citroën’s WRC squad the following year and remained together until they split in 2010.
They reunited in 2014 when Sordo joined Hyundai Motorsport and Martí quickly settled back in the groove - guiding the pair to a best finish of second at ADAC Rallye Deutschland.
The duo were dependable scorers for Hyundai from 2015 to 2017 but parted ways again and Martí then hooked up with rising star Nil Solans for two WRC2 outings the following year.
The pair continued to work together with a handful of outings during 2019 whilst Martí also co-drove for Pedro Heller on national rallies in Chile as well as Mexican driver Ricardo Triviño.
He guided Triviño to third in WRC3 at Rally Guanajuato México in 2020 and also joined Pedro’s younger brother Alberto Heller in Turkey and Italy where they finished in the top five on both occasions with a Ford Fiesta R5.
The 2021 season brought a busier schedule with Solans as the pair embarked on a European championship assault with a Škoda Fabia Rally2.
In the weeks leading up to Rally RACC - Rally de España, Solans announced he would make his World Rally Car debut in a Hyundai i20 prepared by 2C Compétition. Martí joined the youngster to mark his top-tier return after almost four years.
