Emil Bergkvist from Sweden won the 2018 Junior World Rally Championship after a good season where he won the final competition in Turkey together with the co-driver Patrik Barth.

The prize for the win was a Ford Fiesta R5 from the British Ford team M-Sport, along with tires and fuel for the WRC2-championship in 2019. It is now official that Emil and Patrik will start in WRC2 with their Ford Fiesta R5 along with Belgian team J Motorsport.

- It feels incredibly good to have secured this after a lot of hard work, and we look forward to the season, says Emil.

Emil will start the season in the car he won last year, and when M-Sport to the summer presents their new Fiesta R5, they will switch to it.

Emil and Patrik will start in the following rallies in the WRC2-class: Sweden, Portugal, Sardinia, Finland, Germany, Spain and Wales.

- I am grateful to everyone who has helped us and made this possible, especially to Jourdan Serderidis and J-Motorsport who are a big part of making this possible, concludes Emil.
