Takale to make WRC3 debut in Finland

Veteran Indian rally driver Sanjay Takale will make his World Rally Championship-3 debut next month, it has been announced.

Takale will drive a Ford Fiesta R2 in Rally Finland, which takes place on July 26-29 and is considered the fastest on the WRC calendar.

He will team up with British co-driver Darren Garrod and his car will be maintained by Latvia-based Baltic Motorsport Promotion.

Takale was reported to foray into one of the three WRC categories earlier this year and has taken part in several European rallies in the run up to his debut.

“It's a great joy and I have been working hard for last 8 years in rallying and planning to reach WRC one day,” Takale told Motorsport.com.

“Finland had been my favourite rally and [I] am lucky to get the same rally as a debut.

“I think this is the most technical high speed rally in WRC. I would love to finish this rally for sure and finish well.”

Takale will be joined in Rally Finland by countryman and MRF driver Gaurav Gill, who will be competing in the WRC2 class in an R5-spec Ford Fiesta.
