After making his debut in 2008, Camilli’s career hit top gear in 2012 when he won the Rally Jeunes competition in France, earning selection to the FFSA Driver Academy the following season.

He drove a Citroën DS 3 to eighth in the French Asphalt championship, netting two wins in the Citroën Junior Class, before finishing third in the Volant Peugeot series in 2014.

He made his WRC debut at ADAC Rallye Deutschland, showing great pace in the Junior WRC in a DS 3 RST, before finishing second in the category at his home event in France.

Camilli made his mark in 2015 when three podium finishes in WRC 2 caught the eye of M-Sport boss Malcolm Wilson. Despite having contested only 10 WRC events, Wilson signed Camilli for a full World Rally Car season in 2016.

Highlights were fifth and sixth in Portugal and Sardinia, but otherwise it was a generally disappointing year that highlighted his lack of experience and he was dropped for 2017. He returned to WRC 2 and finished runner-up behind Pontus Tidemand.

The Frenchman was a key figure in the development of Volkswagen’s new Polo R5 which he debuted in Spain in late 2018. He campaigns the Polo in 2019.
