Chilean driver Mauricio Pérez (R2) has put his Ford Fiesta on sale. His priority is to recover from his shoulder injury for the rest of the season and, also, he is now at his planning process for season 2019, a year which he projects to be big.

“The focus is put on the WRC Concepción round, it’s the main target, and we are working on something. It would be interesting if it worked, it’s a nice project and I hope it can be realized.”

“Mauro Rally” won’t be at the Pichilemu trophy, nor at the Motorshow, because of a tear in his left shoulder’s rotator cuff. “I’m in treatment and the truth is the car is on sale because I won’t be able to keep racing this season. It’s an injury to take care of and I musn’t abuse, because I want to avoid surgery, so I’m compelled to say goodbye to season 2018,” the driver assures.

Regarding his next year’s plans, he admits he has several projects in mind and that he even might upgrade or stay in R2 but with another car: “Projects must be done and then we see what comes out. The focus is put on the WRC Concepción round, it’s the main target, and we are working on something. It would be interesting if it worked, it’s a nice project and I hope it can be realized.”

Pérez leaves the battle standing eighth, with 27 points in R2, a series which has already been settled, at the Río Bueno – La Unión trophy, with Martín Scuncio and Javiera Román as the first champions in RallyMobil 2018.
