18.03.2015 Birthday Card

Category: Birthday Card, Shortcuts Posted 18.03.15 15:15 by

ERC24 has a list with the dates of birth of several hundred current and former Rallycross drivers. For every day we are trying to find a nice photo for this our ‘Birthday Card’. Enjoy!


March 18 2015 is the 25th birthday of Lithuanian Rallycrosser Martynas Padgurskis, here pictured by our Dutch snapper Dave Smeets while ridin his Division 2 Renault Clio Mk2 on two wheels during the final round of the 2007 FIA European Rallycross Championship at Sosnová in the Czech Republic. Apropos, with his by then 17 years and 112 days Padgurskis is still the record holder as ‘the youngest driver ever for all categories to win a European Rallycross Championship round’, when he claimed D2 overall victory of the Norwegian ERC round at Momarken on July 8 2007. March 18 is also the birthday of Dutch ex-Rallycrosser Fred Kalkhuis and of British Rallycrosser Neil Maynard. And not to forget the 28th birthday of Polish Jack of all Rallycross trades Jakub Stefan Nitka, also known as ‘Qba’ or ‘Qnigan’. A very Happy Birthday from ERC24 to all four!
