Luca Rossetti, a three-time winner of the FIA European Rally Championship, will be back on ERC duty when he contests next month's Geko Ypres Rally.

Rossetti won his first European title in 2008 before claiming back-to-back accolades in 2010 and 2011. He visited the Belgian asphalt showcase last season and said then that he would relish the chance to make his ERC return in the future.

Known as ROX by his fans and followers, the 38-year-old hasn't competed regularly since taking the Turkish title in 2012. However, the former Ypres winner will be one to watch when he takes part in his Skoda Fabia Super 2000 alongside former long-term co-driver Matteo Chiarcossi.
