Johnston set for full WRC debut

FINTONA’S Aaron Johnston and driver Oliver Solberg have been rewarded for a bright start behind the wheel for Hyundai Motorsport.

The South Korean manufacturer have announced this morning that the young pair will drive one of their i20 Coupe WRC’s in the top flight of the sport after just one Rally2 outing in Monte Carlo last month.

Having impressed during that run and earlier in the year at Arctic Rally Lapland, the pair have been given their chance to shine at the top table in  Arctic Rally Finland later this month.
