Sherco’s Lorenzo Santolino will make his rally debut at next week’s Rally of Morocco.
Santolino, who placed 10th overall in this year’s Enduro 3 standings, is the latest EnduroGP regular to sample some rally action.
He joins the very experienced and Dakar stage winner Juan Pedrero under the Sherco awning.
“So proud to announce that I will be at racing at Marroc Rally next week! Thanks to Sherco Racing Factory and all my sponsors, specially to Ayuntamiento Guijuelo that it's helping me in my first rally race,” told Santolino.
While guys like Matthias Walkner, Sam Sunderland, Toby Price, Paulo Goncalves, Pablo Quintanilla, Stefan Svitko and Kevin Benavides are expected to lead the way, there is a strong contingent of rally newcomers joining Santolino on the October 1 start line.
Notably current AMA National Hare and Hounds champion Ivan Ramirez (KTM) is on the entry list, along with newly crowned Russian XC champion Aleksandr Ivanyutin.
Morocco will also see the Hero Motorsports Speedbrain team in action fronted by Joaqium Rodrigues, another rally newcomer, and CS Santosh.
The Rallye OiLibya Maroc - the final round of the FIM series - takes from October 1-7.
