asm13np00101The young Mexican driver will be the first in Latin America to receive the support of the Spanish team in order to compete in Europe

The twenty two year old Mexican driver is going to make the next step in his career with the full support of the Spanish team ASM motorsport. It will be the first driver from his country to compete at the wheel of an FIA S2000 rally car. He will complete this season a full training campaign with the team´s Skoda Fabia S2000, in a selected number of rallyes and testing programme among other activities, with the objective to compete at World Rally Championship level in a medium term period.

ASM Motorsport has decided to sign and to welcome Victor Rodriguez in its team. The young Mexican driver will be the first in Latin America to receive the support of the Spanish team in order to compete in Europe, in the first phase of an exciting new sports project that will be released shortly.

Despite his youth (22 years), Victor Rodriguez has established himself as the strongest Mexican rallying talent. The successes he has achieved in his country are evident. In his first full season as a rally driver, Victor Rodriguez attracted the attention of all those involved in the Mexican Championship by the spectacular results achieved. The young driver from the state of Oaxaca claimed his first victory in the Rally Sierra Juarez, and finished the championship in an excellent third place, proving to be able to beat other highly experienced competitors although his short experience.

Alex Sabater, ASM team principal comments: “We are very proud to announce our long term relationship with Victor Rodriguez from Mexico. He caught our attention last year due to his short experience and his great results in his National Championship, proving a natural talent in the sport. After working with two great drivers in 2012 like Hayden Paddon and Esapekka Lappi, it is a great and exciting challenge now for us to give Víctor the right environment he will need to reach the top class in World Rally Championship”.
