Rally Monza’s Solberg Returns

By Josh Nevett

Young Swedish Oliver Solberg returns to the finale of the World Rally Championship and drives the modern era at Rally Monza.

After competing in rallies on WRC machines in Finland, Safari and Spain, this season will be his fourth top light appearance at the age of 20.

Solberg will drive the same 2C competition Hyundai i20 WRC that has been held at the end-of-season event in Italy from November 18th to 21st.

The opportunity to test his product again at the pinnacle of the WRC in 2021 was a source of excitement for Solberg.

“I’m really excited to be back at the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC in Rally Monza,” Solberg said.

“Of course, this is the last event of this generation’s World Rally Car, so it’s great to drive it at a’farewell event’-and that’s what happens at the legendary Monza circuit!

“I have good memories from Monza, who finished 2nd in WRC2 last year and 7th overall.

“The stage there is very tricky and can be dry, wet and snowy, but prepare for the challenge and learn as much as you can.”

Sorberg, the son of 2003 WRC champion Petter Solberg, was impressed by his WRC debut in February and finished seventh overall at the Arctic Rally Finland.

Solberg, who was recalled at the Safari Rally in Kenya in June, was forced to retire and did not work.

But when he finished seventh again in Spain earlier this month, the signs were again positive.

The 2021 appearance formed part of Solberg’s development next year as it approached the driver of the full-time factory Hyundai WRC.

Spanish Dani Sordo will team up with Solberg for the 2022 season to unveil the new hybrid Rally 1 car.

This means that Rally Monza will be the last rally of the current WRC machine.
