The 18-year-old Romanian will make his debut in the ERC Production Cup in a Subaru Impreza R4 STI in Latvia, and prepared for the experience of driving on snow and ice with his test.
“It was unbelievable, like on PlayStation but in real life,” said Tempestini, who will be joined in the ERC this season by father Marco Tempestini.
“I was surprised by the amount of grip in these conditions. Everybody told me that it will be like this but I was still surprised.
"I had a lot of fun and I will try to build up on all the news things that I’ve learned.
"The next round in the ERC will be another learning stage for me and my goal is to gain experience for the future.”
