Solberg to drive Hyundai WRC at Rally Monza

Oliver Solberg will make his fourth appearance in a Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC at a World Rally Championship event at next month’s Rally Monza.

Solberg debuted in a World Rally Car at February’s Arctic Rally Finland with seventh place overall. The 20-year-old made his second appearance at Safari Rally Kenya. Chassis damage sustained after hitting a bank on day one meant his rally was over early on. At Rally Spain this month, Solberg finished seventh overall on his third WRC-rally in a i20 Coupé WRC.

In 2022, Solberg steps up to a factory drive for Hyundai Motorsport in the WRC. The Swede will share the third car with Dani Sordo.

Last season, Solberg finished seventh overall in a Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo at Rally Monza.

The drivers’ and manufacturers’ titles are to be deciced at the final rally of the season at Rally Monza.
