A promising young co-driver, Coria made his rally debut in 2015 and has risen through the ranks at impressive speed.


He cut his teeth on French national rallies with Jérémie Serieys in a Renault Clio R3 before joining forces with fellow Frenchman Vincent Dubert in the FIA Junior WRC the following year. The pair finished every rally and ended the season third.


Coria returned to the national rallying scene in 2017 and got his first taste of four-wheel-drive machinery with Dubert in a Škoda Fabia R5. He partnered with Dubet and a variety of other drivers on an ad-hoc basis over the next seasons before being called-up to co-drive for WRC3 challenger Yohan Rossel in a Citroën C3 Rally2 for the 2021 Croatia Rally.


Coria and Rossel hit it off immediately. They topped the WRC3 standings midway through the season after claiming third in Croatia plus podiums in Portugal and Sardinia and a win in Belgium.


Their successes caught the eye of M-Sport Ford WRC pilot Adrien Fourmaux, who gave Coria his big break and announced him as his new co-driver in the lead-up to Secto Automotive Rally Finland. After finishing seventh on their debut, crashes at the closing rounds in Spain and Monza brought their season to a disappointing end.


Fourmaux and Coria's 2022 season was also frustrating, and a series of crashes meant they were demoted to Rally2 machinery for 2023. But the pair proved their worth by winning the British Rally Championship in a Fiesta whilst also setting improve WRC2 pace in the car.


Their speed was rewarded by M-Sport, who offered them a full WRC programme in 2024 with a Ford Puma Rally1.
