ERC: Marcus Gronholm to attend Jannerrallye

“We are delighted that Marcus, a true ambassador of the sport, will be joining us at the Jännerrallye and we look forward to tapping into his considerable knowledge and expertise...” - ERC general co-ordinator Jean-Pierre Nicolas.
2000 and 2002 WRC champion Marcus Gronholm will attend the 31 Int. Jannerrallye, Oberosterreich, the opening round of the 2014 FIA European Rally Championship, as an expert consultant for ERC promoter Eurosport Events.

Eurosport will utilise his considerable expertise in its coverage of the winter showcase with Gronholm providing commentary and analysis. He will also appear on ERC Rally Radio during the two days of competition, be available for media interviews and offer his observations on the ERC.

“We are delighted that Marcus, a true ambassador of the sport, will be joining us at the Jannerrallye and we look forward to tapping into his considerable knowledge and expertise,” said ERC general co-ordinator Jean-Pierre Nicolas, who was the boss of Peugeot Sport when Gronholm drove for the French manufacturer during his six-year stint there.

Since retiring from the WRC at the end of 2007, Gronholm has taken part on selected events, tested several rally cars and even worked as a driver coach.

The Finn is also no stranger to the ERC having taken three wins from 11 starts during his early career with first-place finishes on the Arctic Lapland Rally in 1996, 1997 and 1998. His last outing in the WRC came in Sweden back in 2010.
