Factory Hyundai Motorsport driver Dani Sordo clocked his first competitive FIA European Rally Championship stage time on Barum Czech Rally Zlín during Friday morning’s Qualifying Stage, going fifth fastest.

World Rally Championship event winner Sordo is competing in Hyundai’s R5-specification i20 this weekend, his first ever appearance in both the ERC and in an R5 car.

Showing good pace in his Qualifying Stage run, Sordo was bested only by a pair of talented ERC Junior U28 stars and two experienced campaigners, a good start to his first ERC rally.
