RX3 ROOKIE NEY READY TO STEP UP FROM THE DOMESTIC STAGE

Lukas Ney is excited to make his international debut in the FIA European Rallycross Championship in Barcelona next month (23/24 July), as he joins the burgeoning RX3 fold for the full 2021 campaign.

Ney began competing in rallycross in the German Championship in 2004 in a Citroën AX, going on to achieve multiple race wins in the domestic series with a Citroën Xsara VTS.

Now, the 34-year-old German is ready to take the next step by testing his mettle in Euro RX’s popular RX3 class behind the wheel of a Škoda Fabia.

“I’m really looking forward to the first event in Spain,” Ney enthused. “For me and my team, it is a big jump from the German Championship to European level, and my goal for this season is to gain as much experience as possible and learn a lot. The competition in RX3 is going to be really high, so I hope I can make it into the semi-finals sometimes.”
