Toshi Arai signs on for three more ERC rounds [PLUS PHOTO GALLERY]

Toshi Arai’s podium-scoring appearance on the European Rally Championship’s Sibiu Rally last month won’t be his last in this year’s FIA series.

The experienced Japanese, who fought illness to hand Subaru and Yokohama their first podiums of 2013 in third overall, will also contest the ERC rounds in Czech Republic (Zlín), Poland and Italy (Sanremo) having already made his first appearance for Stohl Racing in Romania.

“Apart from Sibiu I am doing Poland and I will also do the Barum Rally in Czech Republic and Sanremo on Tarmac so four in total,” said Arai, who also bagged ERC Production Car Cup honours in Romania for Stohl Racing.

As well as overseeing Arai’s bid, Austria-based Stohl Racing runs current ERC Production Car Cup leader Andreas Aigner.
