ERC: Skoda to return on Ypres

Skoda duo Esapekka Lappi and Sepp Wiegand to skip SATA Rallye Acores, to return on Geko Ypres Rally
Skoda Motorsport will continue its chase for yet more success in the FIA European Rally Championship on next month's Geko Ypres Rally, it has been announced.

The Czech squad is focusing its efforts on the Belgian asphalt showcase after it elected not to include SATA Rallye Acores, which runs from May 15-17, on its busy schedule of events.

“Our next outing in the ERC will be in Belgium, where our young drivers Esapekka Lappi and Sepp Wiegand will be in action at the Ypres Rally,” Skoda Motorsport Director Michal Hrabanek confirmed.

After three appearances in this year's ERC Lappi has claimed two wins, while Wiegand scored his first podium finish with second on last month's Discover Northern Ireland Circuit of Ireland Rally.
