Our Rally2 crews have climbed through the rallying ranks, and at Hyundai Motorsport we are on a mission to develop them to reach their full potential. Read on to find out more about them, their careers, and even what they like to do in their own time.
Emil and Reeta
This Finnish duo has enjoyed success together in WRC2, and 2023 sees them bring their talent to our team as part of the Hyundai Motorsport Driver development Programme. “I’m really excited about the opportunity to become part of one of the most accomplished and successful rally teams globally,” says Emil. His co-driver, Reeta, has 10 years of experience to her name, and in 2020 became the first Finnish woman to compete in the World Rally Championship with a WRC car. The pair will continue to contest WRC2, with hopes of defending their championship title.
Fabrizio & Marcelo
Our crew of Paraguayan Fabrizio “Fau” Zaldivar and Italian-born co-driver Marcelo der Ohannesian pilot our i20 N Rally2 in WRC2. 2023 marks their second year of rallying together – competing on a number of different surfaces across three continents in this time. With a natural gravitation towards success in gravel events and some steady progress on tarmac too, this year’s calendar is suited to the pairing.
