Highly-rated Nikolay Gryazin comes into WRC 2 on the back of a stellar 2018 season in which the Russian won the European junior under 28 title and finished runner-up in the European Championship.

His motorsport career began as a circuit racer and in 2014 he was runner-up in the ‘touring light’ class in his home country. He switched to rallying the following year and was an immediate success, becoming NEZ champion in the R2 class.

Gryazin, who competes under a Latvian licence, also made his European Championship debut at the end of the season and that was where his focus stayed for 2016. He scored an ERC3 win in Poland during a promising year of junior action in a Peugeot 208.

He stepped up to a Skoda Fabia R5 in 2017 for a full European campaign and scored his first outright ERC win in Latvia en route to second in the junior under 28 series. He also finished second in the Latvian Championship.

A second win in Latvia and victory in Poland followed in a successful 2018, during which he also claimed the Baltic Rally Trophy.
