Up-and-coming German drivers Marijan Griebel and Julius Tannert will continue to have the support of the ADAC Stiftung Sport after their top performances in the FIA ERC Junior Championship this year.

Tied to the ADAC, which is involved in the ERC through the ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team, the foundation helps young motorsport athletes with funding as well as advice on their careers, fitness and marketing.

This year, Griebel won the ERC Junior Championship, and finished second on his R5 debut in Cyprus, while Tannert came fourth in the R2-based series.

"I am proud and grateful that I can continue to count on the support of the ADAC Stiftung Sport," said Tannert. "I greatly appreciate this close partnership and am pleased to be able to celebrate many successes together with the foundation."

Tannert and Griebel (back row) are pictured with the Opel Adam R2 that the latter used to win the ERC Junior title on Rally Liepāja. Also supported by the foundation is Anne Katherina Stein (front row, right), who navigated ERC Ladies' champion Catie Munnings this year as well as Philipp Knof, the German two-wheel drive champion (front row, left).
