Danzinger won the Rally Janner in January and current leads the ERC 2WD standings.

“I hope I’m a good teacher, at least I think people like what I do,” said Danzinger, who campaigns in a Renault Clio R3 in the ERC alongside German co-driver Kathi Wüstenhagen.

Danzinger is short on experience outside Austria but is aiming to compete in several events during the 2012 campaign.

“I try to do as much as possible and I really hope we can find the finance to do six or eight rallies,” said Danzinger.

“We had a good start in Austria. Of course I was expecting a little bit to be fighting for the victory although I didn’t expect the gap to be so big but maybe it would not have been like this if the two Suzukis had not retired.”
