Croatian round of the World Rally Championship is the first full tarmac round and from this season there won't be mixed events in the WRC, only tarmac or the gravel ones.
I drove last year on some of the special stages of the WRC Rally Croatia and I can tell you that they are demanding but also beautiful. I would pick special stage Zagorska sela as one of the best. Some of the special stages I never saw before so it will be even more interesting to see for the first time.
Unfortunately this season we won't start the rally because we don't have the complete budget but I hope for the next season.
So M-Sport Ford announced that 25-year old French medical student Adrien Fourmaux will debut on this rally with the WRC car and that is a bid step in the career of this guy.
He had some success in the WRC2 class and also Rally2 class in the European Rally Championship where he won the last round in 2020.
What to expect from this guy?
I guess no more then the learning step with possible top 6 finish if he stay on the road. And I know how difficult some special stages of Rally Croatia are because they have been ran in our national championship.
Let the best win - as always...
