FIA revealed entry list for Azores Rallye 2023
One of the most interesting events of the European Rally Championship has lost it's spot from this year's calendar because of the logistic problems for all the who compete in the series.
Some of you don't know that teams had to take the ferry to the Azores Island which is quite distant from the Portugal and because of the costs and time, ERC promoter decided to drop event from the calendar.
But what I like here is the will of organizer to bring back this rally where it belongs - to the European Rally Championship again. Therefore they invited some really big names to compete in the event.
We have nine-time World Rally champion Seb Loeb as number one seeded driver. After him we have Andreas Mikkelsen, now long time Škoda test and rally driver. These two guys are the biggest names from the entry list.
We also have two WRC2 regulars - Czech driver Erik Cais and Norwegian Ole Cristian Veiby. It is interesting to see that the top 7 drivers are entered with Škoda brand. Škoda's satellite WRC2 team Toksport will be there for Seb Loeb and Andreas Mikkelsen who will be behind a steering wheel of their latest Fabia RS Rally2 cars.
Let the best win - as always...
