Tushkanova confirms Latvia ERC entry
"I don’t have any hopes and dreams about big prizes"
Inessa Tushkanova’s efforts to secure the funds necessary to contest Rally Liepāja-Ventspils next month have paid off after the 25-year-old glamour model confirmed her entry on round two of the FIA European Rally Championship.
Tushkanova had feared she wouldn’t be able to start the snow rally in her Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX but now has the backing in place to tackle the Latvian event from 1-3 February, which means she can now focus on her main objective, as she explained.
“I don’t have any hopes and dreams about big prizes in Latvia, but I find it very important to participate in the rally for my career since the level of ERC is very high and my plans for rally do not stop after one year.
Tushkanova, from Ukraine, also plans to contest September’s Rally Poland.
