Career[edit]

Goñi's first World Rally Championship event was the 1999 Network Q Rally of Great Britain, sitting alongside Mike Corns in a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO where they finished in 49th place.

In 2000, Goñi partnered Stig Blomqvist in a Mitsubishi, again in the Rally Great Britain. After a good run, they retired from the event with suspension damage. WRC season 2001 saw the pair compete in 12 rounds of the World Rally Championship for production cars, ending the season in a creditable 5th place in a Mitsubishi. The pair stayed loyal to the Japanese marque until 2003, when, after a brief foray with a Škoda Octavia WRC, they opted for a David Sutton Motorsport prepared Subaru Impreza.

The pair retired from the WRC in 2006 although they still make sporadic appearances and often compete together in classic rally events.
